    Associate Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Setting up the interview was a real nightmare, it took 21 emails total.

    After the first exchange of emails there was a silence of several days. In one email exchange I told the HR person that I could do every day but X and Y and next thing she does is proposing an interview one of those days. I went there assuming I was just meeting with this HR person, but I was also going to meet with the responsible of the area. I was ready to impress HR but not so to go ahead with the other person.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview with HR was pretty average, she was way nicer in person than by email. The responsible of the area was very sweet and pleasant, there were many questions testing specific knowledge of the digital work of museums.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview since they probably had applicants throughout US. The interviewer was the head of the program in Education. Questions were pretty standard. Why do you want to work in the Education Department? What do you think can be improved/done to the programs? Things like that. She spent more than half of the time introducing the projects in the department. She talked like I already got the place. The official notice actually came 9 days later from Met's official intern account.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Museum of Art in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied in late October online. I got an email for an interview first week of November. Given its prestigious reputation and my dream work environment, I was extremely nervous. I met with the head of HR, who was very sweet and made the interview enjoyable. I next met with one of the higher ups. She was terrifying, she did most of the talking. Despite the job description, she told me I'd be doing only one of the duties listed there. I got the sense she wasn't too into me or anything I had to say. I was out of her office in about 10 minutes. I left the MET feeling shellshocked and knew I wasn't going to get any sort of answer from them.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. Standard tell me about yourself, why are you looking to leave your current job, why the MET, etc...   Answer Question
