    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    My first interview was a phone interview which I passed. I made it to the last round of interviews which was VERY EXTENSIVE. The interview lasted for 3 hours. I went before three different panels. The first panel had 2 people, the second panel had 4 people, and the third panel had 6 people. From the time I applied for the position til the notification of not receiving the job was three months. I applied in June and was notified in August that I was not chosen. That is extremely frustrating especially when one is unemployed.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online, was contacted by a Senior recruiter. Phone interview didn't go so well for me, but I was still brought in for in-person interview. I was ultimately not hired for the position. Was very surprised that I got an in-person interview as my phone interview only lasted about 18 minutes.

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was brief and friendly, but mainly about business. They liked that I had worked before with teenagers. I knew my references were solid, so I was pretty relaxed. The lady doing the hiring was nice, but I didn't end up working for her. They don't have a lot of turnover in the department I worked in though I don't think job satisfaction was that high. People looked like they stayed for lack of better options, so there's a lot of buried resentment and apathy.

    Interview

    Very pleasant. Very casual. Very friendly. My supervisor had made the decision to hire me as I walked in. I originally worked in a parallel depart through a temp agency. While working, I approached the other department and inquired after positions. They hired me quickly because they already saw me at work.

    Interview

    It was 5 years ago - I remember everyone was very nice, but took a while for the process from beginning to end. It took over a month for a decision to be made. It was probably because the interview took place toward the end of the school year.
