    Interview with the Supervisor was smooth and usually the final approval. They asked a lot of questions regarding your interests and soft skills. Additionally, they ask why you want to work in this position and why you are passionate about the position.

    CAD Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    You come in sit talk with manager and his assistant. It was kind of off putting the questions but not something you couldn't answer immediately. Its interesting I didn't really feel good about the job as they require a lot of Grad Students and they want a 2 year commitment. Which I find strange like you can't get any experience in other firms just work for them all year long its that good of a deal.

    Event Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.

    Interview

    I had 2 really great interviews, followed up multiple times, and they ghosted me.

    Sad that an industry so theoretically focused on “changing & connecting the world” doesn’t have the basic decency to simply follow up.

    People talk to each other- be mindful of the impact your ghosting may have. A candidate is a candidate, and you should treat them as a professional, not like some random girl/ guy you met online.

    Advice to recruiters & hiring manager:

    Respond to your candidate’s emails, and try to be as honest and transparent as you can about timelines. We all understand that things come up, emails don’t get sent, etc. Your candidate shouldn’t have to follow up with you post-interview (that is your job, not theirs).
