    Development Officer- Assistant Director of Participation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    This was the worst interview experience I've ever had. I arrive about 10 minutes early & had to go find and office in in the building. Knocked on the door and was told the interview didn't start till 9:30 and was send to wait in the cafe in the lobby 20 some floors below. I looked at my phone as I got in the elevator...it was 9:23. And this was the HR professional I was meeting with. Then I was walked across campus to meet with someone who was waiting for us in the building we had already been in and had to come all the way back. I could tell from the beginning that they already knew who they were hiring and I was not even in contention. One lady didn't even bring questions to ask me. Overall it was extremely unorganized. I would not interview for a development position here again if paired up with the same HR woman and annual giving team. Over all I am glad they didn't offer me the position because I did not like the job that much and I would have taken it just to be able to move to Chicago.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had sent a mail of interest to the professor. He asked to come and meet in him person.The professor interviewed me for 30 minutes. Discussed my work and their work and the collaboration that we could make. It would be simpler if you meet in person than in emails. Better chances of getting employed if you have a working visa (J-1 or J-2 or H-1).
    Asked me to volunteer for some time in order to analyze my skills and applicability of my profile in their lab. After I was able to successfully complete a particular task provided to me, I was told that I had passed the interview test and that he would be glad to offer me a position.
    Overall experience was good and I felt confident throughout the interview process
