    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Called within 24 hours of submitting my resume. I had a 50 minute phone interview that was very friendly and not too complicated. I was very qualified for the position as I have been doing the same work for many years, but did not move on to the next round for panel interview. I had to email the phone interviewer to find out about my status and they responded 4 days later. I followed up for feedback to improve candidacy, but they did not respond to this.

    Special Projects Officer - Research Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online at jobs.osu. A day later, I received a call from the Research Office business manager to come for a scheduled panel interview as well as a confirmation email with who I would meet with, location, directions and time. I went in for the interview, and it was with the "interviewing committee". One of the directors did not show up. There seemed to be a few "interim" directors and assistant directors. They presented themselves as the interviewing committee and then you would have another onsite interview to the next step if selected. It seemed kind of strange - as the panel of three asked a series of pre-selected questions just like a normal interview - behavioral based questions and role playing as well as background questions. They all were nice, but it was not apparent who actually would be your supervisor - two of them spoke more than the other one and asked start dates, etc. And for references. I received an email 10 days that I was not selected to move forward in the process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I tested for my abilities and experience in this type of work. I was then contacted by a supervisor who set up an interview within the week. I sat before a board of 5 very professional and experienced public safety employees who, in a very relaxed environment asked me specific questions and for examples of my past experiences. This was rather refreshing being that they were not the usual interview questions.

    There was a one-on-one interview with a woman who would be my immediate supervisor. After that interview, there was a panel interview with five women asking me questions.
