    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at George Fox University.

    Interview

    The title is Director but the job is not very advanced. The interview was completely over the top for the level of job. It was a two day process involving several departments on campus. Most people involved in the interview seemed to be there not by choice. Most seemed to think it was excessive too.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at George Fox University (Newberg, OR) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was sent some documents about the university and the position prior to the interview, which was promising and gave me time to properly prepare. However, the interviews were disorganized and rarely focused on the position. The questions I prepared for were never asked, and the majority of the questions were related to my faith and Christianity in general.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at George Fox University (Newberg, OR) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Great interview process with panels of administrative staff, students, faculty and executive team. Thoughtful questions. I interviewed for 8 straight hours with quick 5 minute breaks in between hour long sessions. The time flew by as the questions and dialogue was easy and thoughtful. I had the opportunity to privately ask students if they liked their education experience and to ask the staff pros and cons of working at the university.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at George Fox University (Newberg, OR) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Two step interview application process. Main focus upon autonomous and independence, however time management and commitment are strong values that are important to completing the positions. The interviews at this company were very easy and introspective. However, the position requires the ability to work with others and understand the requirements of time management.

    Office Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at George Fox University (Newberg, OR) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring was fairly easy. You are hired online, it didn't take much to get an interview. After the interview, you're practically a shoe-in. Plant Services isn't very glamorous and is all the way by the softball field. The interview is just you and one other person (the head honcho) and they ask questions pertinent to the position of office assistant- I felt prepared for what they asked.
