Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA) in Jun 2016

Interview

An executive director called me within a few days of submitting my resume. An interview was scheduled within one day. I had a phone interview with the Associate Dean of the department which went well, and I was asked to come in for an interview with multiple executive directors. We spoke for a couple hours, and I was told that I would receive a call within the week regarding my application.

Interview Questions
  • They asked me what a manager would tell them if they asked what I needed to work on. I thought that was an interesting question to phrase it a way that would ask for a point of view from someone who is my superior.

Interview

I was contacted to schedule a phone screening. They discussed required salary at this point which I thought was a bit strange. After the phone screening to review my qualifications, they scheduled an in person interview that was relatively short to meet the prospective supervisor. Within a few days, the supervisor phoned to offer the position.

Interview

The majority of the interview consisted of the manager telling me about the job. Not many questions were asked of me so I got the feeling I was merely there to fulfill a formality so they could hire someone they already had in mind.
