    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the two people I would eventually be working for. We had more of a casual conversation more than anything else. They looked at my previous projects and had those to reference during my interview, which was nice. There weren't many stereotypical interview questions, I think they just wanted to see if I was someone they could work with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of San Francisco in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was hired after a very basic interview with the head of the department. He had a great deal of freedom in hiring and because we already knew each other, there was really little question of whether I would be hired or not. The interview mainly consisted of going over my graduate school experience and the focus of my grad school work. Then there were questions about how comfortable I was teaching the basic classes that would be available to me.

    Application

    It started off as a quick email to check my schedule because first priority is my availability.
    Afterwards was a phone screen. The questions revolved around how dedicated and committed I was, how much I care about helping others and what I was able to offer to help change and improve the class in a beneficial manner. There were some questions about how I felt about the class when I took and how I would have improved it through various fronts.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of San Francisco in January 2009.

    Interview

    They take you in for a one on one interview, and ask you the typical interview questions. Why do you think you are qualified for this position? What past jobs/education have you had that prepared you for this position? Very laid back and easy going interview, took one session and got hired immediately.

    Assistant Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at University of San Francisco in January 2014.

    Interview

    Appllied online. Heard back over 2 months later to arrange initial 1 hour phone interview with hiring manager, who seemed very pleasant and friendly in emails. On phone interview, she did a lot of the talking and her questions seemed to be read off a template list. She didn't seem to be listening well my amswers, as she often would follow up to a respons asking the same exact thing I just discussed in detial with examples (not sure if that was intentional to throw me off, but it didn't seem very professional, specially since her background was in Career Consulting). So I didnt feel the first interview went great, but I felt I handled myself well and was articulate. But I didnt think I would move forward in the interview process, instead I was asked to come in for what was intended to be a 1/2 hour interview meeting with each staff member individually...The interview started with a tour of the department (nice touch, which put me at ease)...then all my interviews lasted an hour each (so 3 hours total) and included me showing them my professional portfolio (in which they seemed quite impressed), some interesting scenarios and also a sense of humor. I got a good feeling from all of them, but again didn't feel the hiring manager was a great listener. But overall, it went well and they told me about next steps to meet upper management, so I thought I would hear from them soon. I immediately followed up with each staff member individually with very thoughtfull thank you emails detailing our discussions, to which not even one of them replied...I found this awkward and off-putting considering what seemed to be a strong interview, to not even send a quick reply...I know university hiring processes can be slow, so I waited 3 weeks after not hearing back to confirm my interest, let them know I had another potential offer and needed to respond within a week and politely asked for a status update...a week later and still nothing. I just find it very unprofessional, not in standing with the university's mission and misleading, specially when you are working in Student Services where you need to be responsive and are not allowed to just ignore emails...but it's better to see what kind of people you're dealing with before hand and realize that first impressions are not always sincere.
