    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

    Interview

    The online application has 10+ different sections, and it took about an hour to fill out everything. The job experience section asked to upload a resume and cover letter file, AND copy and paste text into fields. And it says: "Don't say see resume..." as one of the directions. Why are applicants ask to do duplicated work? The online application process should NOT be this painful. And it should not feel like a data entry job. Please look into sites like: greenhouse.io and streamline the application process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I received an email from an HR rep less than a week later. From there, we scheduled a 20 minute phone interview which consisted of standard questions as well as a couple of questions regarding the museum and the position. The interviewer was very bright and friendly which made me very comfortable. Two days later, I received an invitation to attend an interview fair at the museum. The fair consisted of a group interview of about 15 applicants and then an one-on-one interview with a manager afterwards. Although I had a positive experience and everyone I met was friendly, I feel as though the interview didn't allow me to speak about my background and had some unfair disadvantages. At this time, SFMOMA was looking for over 100 new hires, so it kind of was an impersonal experience after the phone interview.
