    Director of Digital Media Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Golden Gate University (San Francisco, CA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to do a 45 minute, first round video interview with two members of the hiring team. It was an awkward interview in which the VP of Communications continuously stressed the high level of tension within the department. It did not make me want to work there. Overall she spent more time talking than interviewing me. At the interview, they asked me to send work samples over, which I did immediately. They never contacted me after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Golden Gate University in October 2017.

    Was interviewed over the phone by the Registrar, and then for the second, came into the office to interview with the Registrar and the Associate Registrar at the time. What was interesting about the process, was that although I wasn't offered the position, the Registrar recommended I apply for the Assistant Registrar position. An internal candidate was hired.

    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Golden Gate University.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back from GGU the next day. I was told I might be a good fit for the role and they listed the salary at $48,000 in their introduction email and asked if I wanted to interview. I was a little thrown off and explained that was lower than what I was currently making, but if I could interview so we could all see if I was a good fit and if my experiences matched what they were looking for, then salary could be negotiated then. They responded that there was no room for negotiation, take it or leave it. So...I decided not to interview. Who can survive in San Francisco making $48,000?? Especially for an assistant director position! I'm not sure how GGU can expect to gain and maintain talent with compensation that's so low.

    Interview Questions

    • Since I didn't interview, the only question I was asked by GGU was regarding accepting their low salary.   1 Answer
