    Administrative Aide Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and about two weeks later I had gotten an email requesting to come in for an interview. The interview went very positive in my opinion. I prepared a lot for it so there weren't any questions that threw me off. I interviewed with two staff members and the exchange was very positive with compliments on my answers, agreements and positive body language. It lasted about 30 minutes and I was told that I would be contacted in about four weeks as they hope to have the position filled in about four to six weeks. A thank you email was sent the next day.

    As four weeks passed I sent the interviewer an email to follow up and to reiterate my interest in working for NYU. Unfortunately, I did not receive a response. I waited two weeks and left the interviewer a voice mail to follow up again, and I never received a response to that.

    I am still giving this a positive interview experience, but to anyone who goes through the interview process, I am just giving a heads up to you that despite your best efforts you may not receive a response when you follow up.

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The position was in the Global Institute for Advanced Study on their "future of work" project. Skype call with a professor in philosophy who apparently is quite famous in his field, but his work is so distant from my own that I had never heard of him. AFAIK, the 30 minute Skype appointment was the extent of the interview process for a 1-2 year postdoc. Questions felt like they were intended to figure out my intellectual prowess, virtually nothing about my CV or research skills.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think are the most important developments in your field as they relate to this project? Can you tell me about any literature on effective initiatives to improve job quality? What do you think the most promising policy interventions would be to address these challenges?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NYU (New York University).

    Interview

    I was emailed to set up an interview, had the interview a few days later by phone because I was out of town and was assured I would personally be notified if I was chosen to go on to the next round or not. It has been weeks and haven't yet received any communication either way, and no response to a polite inquiry. Didn't ask me many questions in the interview mostly told me about the job duties and what they were looking for, but didn't give me much room to respond.
