    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Aquarium.

    Interview

    Multi step with multiple interviews. They mostly want to see if you have had experience in water working with animals before. This is a competitive position so I explained every detail of how much I work with a team in difficult situations.

    Interview

    Applied online. Two weeks later, I received email asking to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was one week after the initial email.

In total, about 6 weeks from application to rejection.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Aquarium in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was a three hour long group interview (20 candidates in total for 4 openings) with about 5 staff members at any given time. It all felt very rushed and super competitive. It was hard to get noticed despite experience and a masters degree in biology education. Lots of group presentations and role playing activities. At the end of it I was completely drained.

    Interview Questions

    • What experiences do you have that makes you a unique candidate?   Answer Question
    • How do you handle a visitor who wants to have a particular experience that we don't offer? (Role-playing)   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Aquarium.

    Interview

    I was applying from across the country, so all interviews were over the phone. An offer was extended without an in person interview. This led to some unrealistic expectations on both sides.
