    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted a panel of two department managers who didn't possess good interviewing skills. Didn't get feed back about the position until six weeks after the interview. After contacting one of my panel interviewers every week for six weeks, I was contacted by the personnel department and this is where I underwent a behavioral interview. I was offered the position during the interview, informed that the position was a unionized position so the salary was set and non-negotiable. I accepted the position and was given a start date for two weeks after that interview. So the entire process took eight week from initial interview to start date.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions at initial interview were completely silly, didn't follow any interview formats I've ever encountered previously or since. At the subsequent interview I was asked what would former clients of my previous employer say was my best attribute.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiations as the position was a union position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) in January 2015.

    Assistant Media Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It took a while for them to respond to my application but when I heard from them, scheduling the interview was fast and easy. I interviewed with the team of two- the director and his associate-that I was going to work with. They were super professional but the interview was conversational and that took the edge off. The chat was delightful and less than a couple of weeks later I head back from them with an offer.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    3 interviews, final interview took an entire day. None of the interviewers were technical so they really didn't know what to ask. Note this was obviously for a technical position.

    Interview Questions

    • how do you work with non-technical people? Most questions were repeated throughout the day by different panelists. Some panelists basically talked to each other.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you talk to someone from HR, you are likely getting pretty close to a final offer when they call you. If you talk to the hiring manager, you likely have a lot more room to negotiate

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The process took about 3 months from first interview to job offer. I met with same person twice and then finally had my interview with HR. I believe people usually interview with HR as part of screening process, but my interview process was done in reverse and meeting with HR person felt like just a technicality.
