    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Decatur, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in May of 2016. Received an E-mail from the hiring manager in mid-July asking if I was still interested. An in-person interview was scheduled for the following week. The interview process was very straightforward and relaxed. Both interviewers had pages with questions and each took turns asking. Most of of the interview questions were behavioral and the hiring manager explaining the desire for S.T.A.R. style responses (situation, task, action, results). They also described the department and the general duties of the role.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had a great phone interview with the hiring committee and was offered an on-campus interview a couple of weeks later. I drove the 5 hours there and paid for a hotel on my dime. The interview was conducted in the HR building and lasted 30 minutes total including the 5 minute pitch I was asked to prepare. I walked away feeling dissatisfied. I was not offered the position, but would have hesitated to take it anyway. That is not enough time to get to know someone, for either the employer or myself. If this search was just a formality for an internal hire, please do not invite graduate students and not offer reimbursement for expenses.
