    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Champaign, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Online short answer questions, they are pretty broad and seem to overlap with each other. When I applied there was another round of questions sent out and they requested a sample of previous work as well. Then there is an person interview with the supervisor and then I met the other liaisons who were working at that time. After you get the job you have to go to a meeting where you meet all of the new and old members of the office.

    Associate Director of Development Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Champaign, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I appreciate the search committee style of interview. It allows more people to assist with the decision making process and probably makes it more fair and balanced. I sometimes wonder if the people who are asking questions from the committee really know and understand the job. It might be difficult to hire for a position you really are not familiar with and it might make it hard to match the right candidate with the job. It was disappointing that I was asked to put together a presentation for an interview and spent several hours on the presentation to not get the position because I was overqualified.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Urbana, IL).

    Interview

    It took 2 months for me to get an interview. The interview process and questions were easy. This is good and bad. It's good if you're not good at interviews, but know what you're doing. Then for a tech position, it should be easy to answer the questions, which they seem to care about more than the behavioral ones. It's bad because they could end up hiring someone incompetent.

    You interview with a committee. Typically, a third of the members will know specifics about your position. The rest will be from other departments/positions on campus. Usually after the position closes, they will review all applications and decide to interview the top 3-5 candidates. The committee has a list of pre-defined questions that they'll ask every candidate.
