    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at San Diego State University (San Diego, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    First time I went in I had to take a computer test and write a sample letter inviting a guest to SDSU. I was called back for an interview with three directors and a staff member. The interview was two hours long and a bit awkward because the interviewers had to follow a very set script in order to ensure fairness and could not ask follow up questions or engage in conversation. After my answers, all four interviewers would take time to write notes in silence since no one could fill the dead space. Very strange dynamic that doesn't create a very warm environment.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were scripted and given to all candidates exactly the same way. No follow up, no casual conversation. They listed the entire job description and asked if there was anything I was not able to handle.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at San Diego State University (San Diego, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was broken into three parts: desk exercise, interview with a committee, and an interview with the director. I came into the position with a lot of experience so I found the desk exercise to be relatively easy, however I took the full time allowed to make sure that I was satisfied with all of my documents. I liked that I got to interview with a panel and with the director and had the opportunity to ask them questions as well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at San Diego State University (San Diego, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was a simple 30min interview. The interviewer was super nice. He gave me a question to solve on the spot and ask me to explain in detail. This is because the students that come into for tutor have difficulty understanding the materials. As a result, you might have to explain in the common knowledge that they can understand too.
