    Easy Interview

    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.

    It's generally a two to three part process. First you meet with the department's associate director - she's amazing and kind. but make sure you're on point and confident. Then you'll meet with HR who's really there to make sure your employment transition is smooth.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the following week to set up an in person interview. I met with an HR rep and an Associate Director of the school. The interview went very well. standard questions with no real curveballs. Both were very nice and made me feel comfortable. After that I never heard back. It took me emailing two weeks later to figure out what was going on. They responded with they enjoyed my interview, but decided on someone else. What irked me is that I had to reach out to the school to find out the decision. That is completely unacceptable. There is no reason to not hear back from a job you interview for. Liked the interview , but that ruined the whole experience.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process went well...I found the questions to be a little condescending when there is a resume in front of them. The interviewers seemed very happy to work there. They had been there for years and pushed that they are looking for "lifers"

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I am a perfect candidate but the interview process is computerized, non personal. In short, unless a human is reading over my resume, I am getting passed by. It is bias. I wasn't given a fair chance and have more experience than the job dictates.

    I went to three rounds:
