    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

    Interview

    English Skills and flexible schedule are the most important parts of the interview. Be honest and show interest. The interview will be very short and concise. The fact that you already have a SSN is a plus because they are usually in a rush to hire new student assistants.
