    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Fordham University.

    Brief and straightforward. They asked a couple of questions and then told me on the spot that I got the job. It was a really short interview and I don't know if it was selective but I was the only one chosen

    Assistant/Associate Director of Graduate Admission Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Fordham University (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, it was very long and kind of awkward. During the final interview, which was over four hours long, one of the members of the selection committee referred to Fordham as a lower level school and wondered why I wanted to work for a lower ranked school. Additionally, any company that has such a lengthy interview process and wants applicants to jump through so many hoops, should make a prospective employee hesitant. There were three rounds of interviews - phone selection, in person meeting and tour and then another in person meeting with a presentation. The lead for the interview committee never made any of his follow up deadlines.

    Application

    I interviewed at Fordham University in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview felt conversational; which was nice. About 40 mins. No call back or email. A bit unprofessional but not at all surprising in the wonderful world of Higher Education.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fordham University (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First, reach Professors teaching relevant courses to seek possible GA opportunities by emailing resume. Another way is, submit resume to admission office, waiting for reply. This way is much see efficient.
    After that, attend interviews and meet Professors who are looking for assistant in person. Usually, dressing in suit would be more respectful but some Professors don't like things to be too formal.
    There will be just one round interview. The point is to show Professor it's easy and comfortable to work with you.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fordham University.

    Interview

    Very vague and not enough technical questions. I was hoping to get more hands on experience. Person was late to the interview and that gave a bad impression.Very vague and not enough technical questions. I was hoping to get more hands on experience.

    Fordham Law Library Cataloging Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fordham University (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and letter of application via email, a few weeks later I was contacted for a phone interview, a few weeks after that, a 5 hour in person interview, with several panels, and several one on one meetings, I got a call a few weeks after that to inform me that I didn't get the position. The entire process (while lengthy) left me with a great impression of everyone who worked in the law library, and gave me a really good understanding of what it would be like to work there. It was very intimidating to have such a lengthy interview process, but I'm really glad that was how they did it.
