    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    There are always two steps: The phone interview and the in-person interview. The most difficult part is that usually the in-person interview requires a presentation, even for some entry-level positions.

    Each department varies in the amount of time it takes to go through the process, but there isn't a ton of red-tape, so it can go very quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • GMU lives by it's stated values, so stick to those. Also, you're going to want to practice for the presentation--I've seen too many top candidate bomb it and not get an offer.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online and called the day the position was closed. Scheduled a phone interview, not clear what they wanted during the conversation. Have a lot of experience but it seems like they knew who they wanted and were just going through the process for a formality. VERY COMMON.

    the interview was very inefficient and boring, interviewers didn't ask professional questions, this job is more like a administrative assistant job than a lab manager job. as you can tell, lab manager needs to program and code but this job requires prepare paperwork and clean the lab.
