    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Indiana University (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Received an email about 2-3 weeks after submitting my application online. Phone interview with HR, then brought in for in-person. The in-person interview was essentially three different interviews with a handful of people over about 3 hours. I was given a lot more information about the day to day aspects of the job during the interview. Received an offer the next day. The HR representative was very communicative and helpful. Overall the interview was laid back and enjoyable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Indiana University.

    Interview

    The hiring process can be rigorous and is shaped by the personality of the EMC director on the campus you're applying for. The process took three months from the time I submitted my resume, but the online hiring process keeps you well informed of where you are in the process. I had three interviews before I was offered the job. The first was telephonic, the second was Skype, with five people asking me questions, and the third was face to face with the boss. Each one lasted half an hour to an hour.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Indiana University.

    Interview

    I applied for three separate jobs in three separate areas. There is no consistency in how interviews are conducted. Each department or entity has its own method, so it all comes down to luck of the draw in who you meet. One department's group interview felt as if they had not interviewed anyone in 20 years. It was a stiff, formal process with rote questions. Though I was a finalist, nothing substantial was revealed about the position and no real effort had been made by the interviewers to take even a cursory glance at my resume. While there are a few dedicated people in HR, it is abundantly clear that recruiting and taking care of people as applicants or employees are not priorities at this university.
