    Administrative Aide Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NYU (New York University).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back the week after to schedule a phone interview. The interview itself was generic, but the experience also felt detached. Pretty much asked for an overview of all my experience from oldest to newest.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call that day. We scheduled an interview the next day but the hiring manager called last minute to push the interview back a week. The following week I received a call and the interview was pretty straight forward. I wasn't asked about any of my past experience, just generic interview questions. I was told there were more people to interview and I would hear back either way. I knew with that response that I probably didn't get it. I got an email a week later saying they found someone else.

    Administrative Aide II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online. I got a phone screen by an employee in the department, then was invited for a panel in person interview a week later. It consisted of meeting all the managers of the individual departments who I'd be working for as well as the Dean of the school. I was there for a little over 2 hours and it wasn't too bad because the people seemed really supportive and informative about what they wanted from the position and overall what they were looking for. After the in person interview, I received an online assessment and then they requested to do a background check and contact my references. A little over a week later they called and offered me the job, however I accepted another job in another department because I believed it would better fit my long term goals. It was a great experience though and the hiring process was fast compared to everything I've heard about NYU's normal process.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me very basic questions. What are 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses? What were my daily tasks at previous jobs? How did I handle angry customers? What do I value most in the work place? Why did I want to work at NYU?   Answer Question

    Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was called to have an exploratory interview for this position. I did not apply for the position. A human resources representative called me, told me that she saw my resume in the system, and asked if I was interested in an exploratory interview. I said yes, and we scheduled a phone interview for that day. Approximately two weeks later I was contacted by the same representative from HR. She said that they would like to bring me in for an interview with staff members and asked me for times and dates that I was available. After giving them days/times that I was available, I was told that someone else would call me to schedule the interview. I never heard from them again. And oh, someone from Stern took the time to email me through my LinkedIn page and try to get me to sign up for a $5400 seminar covering topics that I already covered in my MS degree (listed on my resume).

    Interview Questions
