    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UMUC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by HR via email for a quick screen, then Webex interview. I did amazing in the interview and they told me I'd move to the next round (probably happening the next week). I wait two weeks and drop them a line to get an update, and I'm told the interviewer is busy but that I should hear back the next week. That week comes and goes, another half week goes, and still nothing.

    I understand people get busy, but at a certain point it just becomes poor time management on the part of the interviewer, not "busy".

    Collections Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyattsville, MD
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UMUC (Hyattsville, MD) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out over a 2-3 month process, it was a very easy interview and not much pressure. I had a lot of interest in the job, but the length of the process when doing interviews that never lasted more than 30 minutes could have been condensed in 1 lengthy interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    More money offered thru another company that I had sent my resume to after a month and a half into this process.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UMUC.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview. The person asked me to tell her about myself in terms of how many years experience I have, etc. They went over a few things about the company (the history and things like that). They went over the benefits package like paid time off, insurance, tuition remission, etc. They advised the date I'd be starting if I get offered the position. At the end, they advised they would submit all the info to someone else and they would decide whether or not to bring me in for an in-person interview. It wasn't long until someone got back to me and scheduled an in-person interview. I was interviewed by 2 people and was asked very standard interview questions. After the interview, I was shown around the office I would be working (which is almost always a good sign you're going to be hired) and met a few of the other advisors and managers. I was offered the job a few weeks later which was 3 weeks before I started working.
