    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Moma (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Submitted cover letter and resume via email after receiving the job listing through an email blast to a university alumni group. I was contacted promptly for a phone interview after submitting. We had one phone interview, in which it seemed the job might not be the right fit for me. We left the call o uncertain circumstances, and I did not receive a response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Moma.

    Interview

    Had a 25 minute interview over the phone. Was told the interview process was going to be long and should hear back in a month. While the person interviewing me was nice, she did not seem excited to be speaking with me. There were a lot of questions about not getting along with managers and how you would go about your work in that scenario.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Moma (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was asked to come in to be interviewed a month after I applied. I was interviewed by the Department Manager and a curator. They were very nice and thoughtful to me during the interview. Although I wasn't offered the position, I left thinking highly of the level of professionalism held by MoMA's employees. It would definitely be a place I'd like to work for in the future.

    Here are some things that I thinked helped me:
    I had a New York address and was able to come in for an in-person interview
    I asked questions
    I did my research and came prepared

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Moma.

    Interview

    A very fast process for me, which included 2 interviews in one day, back-to-back. 1 with HR, 1 with hiring supervisor and Department Manager. Both interviews were very natural conversations and they were very easy to talk to. Afterward they also asked me for references and for a writing sample where they gave me a specific prompt to respond to - it was a mock formal report.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a broad question about my long-term career goals, which I think can be very tricky to navigate and summarize succinctly.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fast & simple.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Moma in September 2014.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by email to set up a phone interview.
    Phone interview was generally about how I can operate under pressure, what I can bring to MoMA, and my overall experience.
    The person was very nice, but can seem disinterested in what you have to say especially if you seem nervous. They're looking for people already know what they're doing, and don't really want to train or let anyone grow into the position even if they have a high potential for growth.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Moma in August 2014.

    Interview

    I filled out and mailed the paperwork and didnt get called for an interview until 2 weeks before the notification date.

    Despite living 30 minutes away from the museum I was given a phone interview.

    Like any interview I prepared well in advance and was ready to answer any questions on my work and educational experience

    what I got instead was a quick run over what I would be doing in the internship and the simple question of whether everything she had explained sounded like something I would be interested in, with the interview lasting less then 10 minutes.

    And that was that. I sent a thank you letter shortly afterwards only to get my rejection letter 1 week after the notification date.

    and FYI despite being one of the most renowned museums in the world who apparently got over 500 applications from every pocket of the globe, each department is allowed to hire a maximum of ONE intern per season.
