    Program Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Mexico State University.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview scheduled with the program director, but instead was interviewed by someone else. It was about 20 minutes long and not many questions were asked.

    In the end, I believe that they had a candidate already selected for the position, but due to HR regulations, they were required to interview a minimum number of people. This is because the "position filled" email was sent 24 hours after my interview.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at New Mexico State University.

    Interview

    Got three references within the college of business. Interview included basic questions about my grades, what classes I like the most and why did I specialize in a certain department and what I would like to do in the future. Interviewd with 2 different people within the college of business and was mostly conversational. Felt more comfortable as I knew the professors beforehand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New Mexico State University (Daytona Beach, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the Marketing Director who spent approx. 90 mins. with me asking many questions and giving me two tests, including a personality test. This came AFTER I had spent 4 hours at home on-line filling out the application and completing other required tests to get to the first interview. The process consists of the above plus two additional interviews, the last with the company CEO. --- Despite, or maybe because of, my considerable experience and expertise in the field, I was not asked in for a second interview. I'm not sure if it was because I have a PhD and 20+ years of experience and the position called for a Bachelors degree and two years experience, or because I have silver hair and the person interviewing me appeared to be twenty-something. Perhaps I didn't get another interview because I suggested that, based on the job description they advertised, the company required an individual with far more knowledge, skills, and abilities to accomplish the goal they sought to achieve.

    Interview

    Phone interviews, followed up by an on-campus visit that was over the course of one day. I had sessions with multiple campus partners and stakeholders. It was a very redundant process, and they also brought me in against someone I was competing against which was awkward.

    It's not lengthy and it's real simple. The usual questions you can google about in basic interviews. I interviewed with the manager and her assistant.

They ask if you have any other questions, and then you're off on your way.
