    Administrative Aide II Interview

    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

    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

    • What is the least amount of money you would take for the position?

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was kind of laid-back and not stressful at all. It lasted around 45-50 minutes. I was interviewed by the PI and it was a pleasant experience. For this position, a second round of interviews was conducted. I'm still waiting to hear back on whether or not I advanced to the second round!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The process started with a quick, qualifying phone call. The follow-up/second round were two in-person interviews in groups. It was a casual setting. First, I met with a group of would-be colleagues who asked questions about my work style, how I work on teams, etc. After, I met with the two would-be managers. They asked more difficult questions about my experience working with students and managing student workers.

    Financial Aid Counselor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied in May online and was contacted a day or two later for a phone screening. It went well and I was invited for a second interview a few weeks later which also went well. I was invited to have a third interview a few weeks after that which unfortunately didn't go perfectly, but I was still hopeful. Despite following up twice in the following weeks, no one responded to my messages and I was never notified of the decision. I had to take off work on three separate occasions for these interviews so any notification would have been appreciated, even if it was a rejection.
