    Creative Design Manager Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in May of 2016, got an email mid June from a person in that office asking to schedule a phone interview for the following week. After the phone interview I was asked to come in for a group interview two weeks later. The interview went great in my eyes, really hit it off with the staff and upper management.
    Didn't hear from them for over two weeks. Finally I sent an email after almost three weeks asking what their timeline was for filling the position. Hiring manager told me they were going with someone else.
    It is the summer so people were probably on vacation. Worked out for the best though, got an offer from another University in Boston.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Northeastern University (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process went very well. There we a preliminary interview via telephone. Within 4 days An in person interview was set for 1 week later. I met with the special assistant and interviewed. She was very friendly and made me feel relaxed. I then met with a group of 5 other executive assistants who interviewed me too and told me about the job. I walked away feeling confident that I got the job. They took 1 week to reach out to me and by then I had already decided to accept another position elsewhere that was paying me 10K more. It was bittersweet because I really could see myself happy there but the other job was just as good and paid me for my MBA degree.
