    Assistant Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rice University (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Intensive interview process that included four rounds over a period of 4 weeks:
    (1) Initial Phone Screening
    (2) Casual Meeting with Team Members
    (3) Formal In-person Panel Interview (lasting 3 hours, met with a total of 9 people)
    (4) Phone Interview with Executive Member

    This was one of the most intensive interviews of my life. It seemed that I was interviewing for a C-level position (I was not). I was disappointed not to receive an offer, as I was under the impression that I was the first choice. The position was offered to someone whose education was slightly more in line with the role. I would have preferred to spend a little less time in the interview process, but I also learned quite a bit during each round.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rice University.

    Interview

    Called by their HR dept for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted less than 10 mins. All the questions were negative and no amount of practice could of prepared you for this interview. At one point, I heard the interviewer sigh with disapproval when she asked me about the salary (keep in mind the application asked for my salary expectations so I don't understand why it was such a surprise to her). After the interview was done, was told I would hear about the next steps.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with them and they promised to let me know the outcome. Unfortunately no one contacted me to at least inform that they are not interested in the second interview. It is a courtesy and I was expecting a better interview experience at Rice.
