    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pepperdine University (Malibu, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very well executed and in a very comfortable environment. I met with the executive that I would be assisting. It was very professional and pleasant. He told me that he was going to take a bit of time to decide, so not to be concerned if I did not hear back from him right away. This was about a month ago and I have not heard back from them at all on the outcome. Which is a bit disappointing. As they should really take the time to let someone know if they are no longer being considered for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Pepperdine University.

    Interview

    One-on-one on site interview. Ask about personal experience first and then turn to specific questions related to position. Pepperdine value the religion and culture. Some departments require student assistant can spread the Christian culture and hold the willingness to help others. If the skill set and other requirements are the same, the attitude shapes the interview process and final result.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you understand the responsibility of student assistant?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pepperdine University.

    Interview

    It's a long process (4-7 interview touch points) and they try to really get a feel for your experience and how you'll fit within the existing team you're joining. You'll meet everyone, including the CMO before an offer is extended.

    Office Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pepperdine University (Malibu, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process took 3 weeks. I applied online, and was contacted the next day to come in that week for an in-person interview. I met with 2 people (so balancing eye-contact was a new challenge for me). It took about 40 minutes. I received a call 3 days later, asking if I could come in for a second interview. I met with a team of 5 people, then the provost, then other staff members of the two offices that the manager would work in. This process took about an hour, and we talked for a while which was a good sign, I thought. She even asked to see a writing sample which I sent in later that day.

    However I received an email the following week saying they had filled the position.
