    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Keep this in mind before applying to roles in ARD: UChicago has a policy that in order for an employee to be promoted, they must post that higher title position online. This means you're often applying for a job that may not actually be available, but UChicago has to interview three candidates EVEN IF this is a role set aside for someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked pretty standard questions, but if this job is set aside as an internal promotion, it doesn't matter how well you answer these questions. I would try to find out if an internal candidate is being considered or if this is a truly open role before wasting time in a four-hour long interview going nowhere.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Chicago in November 2017.

    Interview

    I have interviewed with the University of Chicago three times and was ghosted by them twice. I took off an entire day to speak with a cast of 1000's, I sat in traffic for 45 minutes, and I had to pay for 8 hours of parking. The least you can do is respond to my emails and tell me I didn't get the job.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Chicago in January 2013.

    Interview

    A long process because of how slow the company takes to get back to you. If you get the interview just be personable. Once they have chosen you for the interview, it's yours to lose.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Remote Interview, simple very straight forward. Two people interviewed me, both 45 minute sessions. They asked basic questions and it came very natural for me to answer them because of history of being a CRA.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. What kind of training did you receive as a CRA? Need some important items in the 1572. What is an ICF? What do you know about our company?? Why are you interested in being a CRA?   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Chicago in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted for a brief phone interview than asked to come in the following week for an in-person interview with other coordinators and the PI. It seemed like it went really well and they told me they'd be setting up another interview with a PI who was out of town for my in-person interview. I didn''t hear anything after that. I had emailed them a couple days after the interview inquiring about when the phone interview would be and they never responded.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Chicago in March 2013.

    Interview

    I began the process on-line. This was the easy portion during the interview process. You can check where you are in the process on-line. Interviews were set up and I was brought back multiple times to meet different levels of Leaders. A campus tour was added at the end. Interviews were not intense but the frequency of them led me to believe that they were indecisive. Some interviewers were late or did not show for the interviews which was frustrating.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were not difficult. HR gives every interviewer the same questions to pull from so you are asked the same questions over and over again. I picked up during the interviews that there were some people issues as well as lack of process issues.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is available, but be careful to get everything in writing.
