    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Santa Clara University (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I initially applied by sending in my resume to the business school. After a week they invited me in for a group interview, where I interviewed with five other people. It was mostly behavior. A few questions were asked, and each person was asked an individual question. A week later, I received an invitation to be a peer advisor.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Santa Clara University (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    A quick in-person interview with a few of the administrators in the office. Very simple and straight forward conversations just trying to get to know you and your personality. They were all very friendly and welcoming. There were no questions that were trying to "get you" and they were very open to sharing what the environment and work would be like.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Santa Clara University (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview with person who would be direct supervisor, and then set up personal interview. I first met with HR representative, who told me all about all the benefits, days off, etc. This struck me as a bit premature and a waste of time, because if I didn't get offered the job, why dangle all the bennies in front of me? Because they pay below market, and that's how they try to lure you in, that's why. It was followed up by a panel interview, with one person after another firing off questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Santa Clara University (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted via phone to schedule an in person interview. There was no initial phone screen and it was just the one interview. I interviewed on a Friday and was told I'd hear back early the following week, but it was two Mondays after that I received an email indicating I would not be offered a position. The interview itself was easy enough, a panel of five women, and once the question and answer portion was done I was led to a waiting area where someone was to join me shortly and give me a tour of the center (which I took to be a good sign). They left me waiting for at least 20 minutes, probably closer to 25 minutes, which I thought was strange because it's not like I wasn't aware they were all in the conference room talking about me. Finally I was led on a brief tour and that was that.
