    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of Colorado at Boulder.

    Interview

    The initial interview is pre-recorded and done through HireView. Fort this position the interview questions were sent ahead of time so that the candidate had plenty of time to prepare STAR responses. There are opportunities to practice the recorded interview process and you have the option to hide the screen that shows you interviewing. During the actual interview it will have the question and then give you 60 seconds (you can skip if you want) to prepare before recording your response. You have 3-4 minutes to give your complete response. All questions were behavioral based and most of them were specific to pre-health students.

Was provided with video call link and other information by the employer. Was told if I had difficulty accessing the call I could call in by phone. During the video interview, I was told references would be contacted by CU HR (automated survey) within a few days. No references were contacted but HR emailed saying the team was still deliberating. The following week, still no references were contacted and was never contacted again by either HR or department lead, despite one email and one voice mail follow up on my behalf.

    Starts with a video interview with about 7 to 8 questions. The video interview is prerecorded so you have to sit in front of your computer and answer questions with no one on the other side.
