    Financial Aid Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hemet, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UC Riverside (Hemet, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview of 6, not what I would expect for a first interview. How can you format an opinion based off of 6 different people? Aside from that, I received no notice that I did not get the job. I constantly checked my status and after 3 months it finally went from Applicant to Filled. I wish they notified me like they said they would because I was crossing my fingers every day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The interview was conducted in a small conference room, with me at the head of the table, and three female managers from different departments taking turns asking pre-scripted questions. A quick introduction of names, titles and duties was given by each manager before the questions began. At the end minimal time was given for me to ask questions. All questions were standard and open-ended. A follow-up skill review was sent via email to test my abilities in analyzing random data and providing suggestions to reduce costs; also, they required I use Excel to create a pivot table and Powerpoint presentation.
