    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at University of San Diego (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the job board posting. The online portal requested detailed experience. I received a phone call about 2 weeks after I applied online to interview that next week. I came in for an hour long interview that was split into two parts. I walked out with contact information to follow up with for skills testing that I completed the next day. I was emailed later that week to call and schedule a second interview with someone who was out of the office when I came in before. The second interview was very quick and to the point. I met with my prospective boss again who informed me that I was a finalist pending reference checks. 2 of my 3 references were emailed the next week. I was contacted by HR after that with a tentative offer pending background and education checks to start in 2 weeks.

    Interview

    Starts with a group interview process. Former employees sit at the tables with you and talk to you. Very casual. Some group questions are asked that are made to see how you work as a team. Second interview is done by director and a couple of former employees. They ask some very basic questions, and it is very casual.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of San Diego (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online. I was required to submit a work sample prior to the interview. There was only 1 interview conducted with a panel of interviewers. The panel included the hiring manager, another manager in the department, and a peer/someone who had performed some functions of the role in the past. Interview questions were pretty standard and leaned more to motivation/interest vs. prior experience.

    The university in general has a big focus on relationship vs. process. There is an emphasis on serving students in a personalized manner.

    • Lots of scenario-based questions. Looking to see if you demonstrate empathy, personalized service.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of San Diego in November 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview consisting of redundant questions that had little to do with the position applied for. I did not get an offer to interview in person which is ok because the pay offered is insulting ($14 an hour and I have a bachelors degree!).
