    Building Services Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    Put in a application on December 19, 2016. Application was forwarded to hiring manager. Received a phone call on January 11, 2017 to do a phone interview no email sent before hand to tell me I was going to be interviewed. After the interview waited two weeks and followed up with hiring manager, hiring manager had been on vacation. Told me he would follow up with me, a week later February 8, 2017 checked the status and was no longer under consideration. Complete waste of my time.

    Staff Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, was automatically notified it was now with the manager 9 days later, phone interview less than a week later, asked to come in person another week later. Interviewed in person and met at least 10 different staff members from different areas. I spent over 4 hours on campus. I wish I was told it would take up my whole day. Ended up having to pay for my own parking and since it was during lunch time, I was really hungry halfway through the day. 20+ days later, I was emailed that I did not get the position.

    Graduate Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. It seemed like more of a backwards interview, where they were trying to convince you to come to duke more-so than figuring out whether or not you should be there. This was an interview in the ECE department, so I'm not sure if every other department works the same way.
