    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Central Florida.

    Interview

    Contacted for interview via email within a week of applying. Panel interview style. Questions were basic and straight forward. Very minimal amount of questions asked, and didn't seem like interested in me as a candidate in general. When came to ask questions of my interviewers, didn't seem too enthusiastic about answering. Told I would get a response in a few weeks since the HR department takes time. Did not receive a response what soever and it's been 3+ months. Only found out on the UCF website that I did not get the position. This is the third position with UCF I've applied for in which the HR department did not respond telling me the outcome of the interview.

    Student Financial Assistance Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Central Florida (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied on August 25th and received contact for an interview in mid-October. The interview took place at the financial aid office with an assistant director and coordinator. Considering the reputable institution I know UCF to be, the interview was incredibly tense and uncomfortable. My answers were cut off in mid sentence, my interviewer did not seem engaged and appeared distracted. I arrived 30 minutes early, but it seemed as if I caused some sort of inconvenience by being present. I know employees at UCF who are happy and satisfied and I'm only responsible for my point of view, however, I was incredibly surprised by my negative experience.

    Interview

    Applied and got an email response the same day. Set up an interview for that week. The interviewer took me to the building across the clinic and was interview by 3 people. The background check took about a week and did not hear back from them so I called to check up on my status. Did not get the job. Said that they hired someone else but will keep me in their database. All of the interviewers were very nice. Be prepared to answer some odd questions that might catch you off guard.
