    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process reflected well on the hiring department and search committee at the University. I applied online and heard from a committee representative a couple weeks later. The interviews occurred in two stages: an initial Skype conversation with the search committee and then, one month later, a day of departmental meetings/presentations in person in Eugene (expenses paid). Ultimately, I pursued another opportunity but was grateful for the positive interview experience.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR).

    Interview

    Walked in, said I took the class and got an A, got the job. That was it. It may have helped that I had a friend who worked there, but even without that I would've just had to show some coding knowledge

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They sat me down in a room full of current supervisors and the current boss. They asked roughly 20 questions varying from personal details such as age, year, major to situational questions about the job. They were all very relevant. After the interview process they did a walk through of your daily job and you shadowed a current supervisor.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Quick process, they take you to a large room with a bunch of people. Fairly intimidating if you're not expecting it. About fifteen generic questions. Nothing crazy, like why do you want to work here, what skills do you have to make you a great person, leadership stuff, teamwork stuff

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Went into a conference room with four senior staff members, they asked me questions about previous employment and made sure I would be up for some of the grungier tasks involved in the position. They just seemed to want to get to know me and make sure my resume accurately reflected my skills.

    International Student Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Long interview process. Review of applications lasted over 5 weeks. The panel consisted of 4 individuals, two of them were foreigners and had heavy accents. The interview was over skype so it was tremendously difficult to understand them but they were the type of people you'd have a hard time understanding in person. The other two were staff of the department and one of them was quite arrogant. I was surprised to see that no senior level staff or director was on the panel. After all, isn't a seasoned manager the type of individual that can identify talent and pursue a new hire who will complement the team? What's worse is that I waited over a month to hear back that I hadn't made it to the second phase. Actually, I got in touch with them a month later and waited about a week to hear that I wasn't being considered.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the foreign panelists gave me a scenario involving an international student who suffers for social anxiety and performs poorly. At least I think that was the gist but I honestly think I missed most of the question because it was so difficult to understand, it was through skype and the panelist stumbled on their words. It thought it impolite to ask them to repeat the question and that may have contributed to my performance.   Answer Question
