    Web Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transylvania University (Lexington, KY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process went well with nothing out of the normal. The interview began promptly in an office with some questions on the position and its role being put out, followed by a brief walk across campus to another office for a brief chat. I eventually met the small team that I would be working with, where we sat in a circle and had a casual conversation.

    That aspect was fine. What was not great about the experience was the presentation. If I am expected to present a portfolio, a computer shown up to a projector or a television would be nice. In all cases prior to this, I've been expected to show a digital portfolio. Instead, I had to grab my iPad Mini and show them my sites and work in a not-so-great manner.

    Additionally, I never received any communication after the interview. That's not standard procedure. I called Human Resources several times (up to 6 weeks after the interview), only to be told that it was still an ongoing process. It's now been two months with no word. Unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transylvania University in April 2017.

    Interview

    The phone interview was harder than imagined. You don't realize how much is missed out on personal interaction during an interview and the sound of crickets in the background after you answer a question makes you second guess your answer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Transylvania University (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was honestly not tough at all. The staff are super laid back, and it was a really quick and easy process. Just go in prepared and knowing what you are going to talk about. I really enjoyed how laid back everything was, however they do expect a sense of professionalism.
