    Difficult Interview

    The interview was rather difficult since the position was an advanced research one. There were questions to test quantitative as well as technical knowledge. On the whole a tough nut to crack.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    From time of submission to phone screen took 6 months for first initial contact because they were hiring for another position. I was interviewed by the person who was filling currently filling the role as a contractor and she couldn't really identify what the upcoming projects where. I submitted to the position online in December, followed up by submitting some portfolio examples to the director via snail mail in early January and then followed up again in late January to the director to find out the status of the position. I was then told that they are focused on filling another opening first. I am an alumna of Northeastern's Graduate program. I was really pushed for a salary which I felt very uncomfortable giving because I didn't have a sense of the position at all. I indicated that there must be a range online and budget they are working with and the interviewer because defensive to point where I had to say identify that this was not ending on a positive note" I am sure my pushback didn't help me but if ranges are identified online that organizations should be willing to identify the range budgeted for the position. I certainly indicated that I would be willing to negotiate if it were mutually agreed upon that I was the right fit.

    Creative Design Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    After passing the initial phone interview, which seems pretty standard these days, I was invited in for an in-person. Wow, it was long! I was scheduled to meet with approximately 7 people, but because the hiring manager was late, the whole interview shifted out and some weren't able to make it. It was a long time sitting and interviewing with one after the next, one on one. All were extremely nice, and very thoughtful about their questions. I sent a thank you card (via snail mail) as well as an email to follow-up afterward. Unfortunately, I never heard anything back from anyone.
