    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Northeastern University.

    Interview

    I met with four people. One of the four - my third interview - was so rude and unprofessional to me I almost walked out. This individual clearly had expectations for the role that were not reflected in the position as advertised and I did not meet those expectations. I was really thrown by that one. Everyone else was really nice.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northeastern University.

    Interview

    Very casual, great interviewer, very personable. Completely ignored me once I left. I contacted multiple times and the person did not even have the courtesy or courage to deny my application/interview. If you are not going to give someone a job it is the least you could do to tell them.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northeastern University in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process as a whole wasn't bad. The questions weren't particularly difficult, however they looked at communication cues more than anything (eye contact, fidgeting, etc.) If you want to work in the co-op department, have these skills down. If you are applying to any other area of the university, I highly recommend networking beforehand to get the position. It never hurts but at Northeastern since it is so pre-professional, you need to have your stuff together so you can show students how to network too.
