    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Interview

    The interview was held at a resident hall. The directors were unorganized. The first thing that one of the interviewers told me was they did know anything about me. I lost interest in the position on the spot because they neither had my resume nor knew about me as a candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone panel interview with hiring director and two PMs. The second interview I was given a scenario in which I had to present how I would handle the situation to an audience of approximately 25 IT employees. Presentation was 15 minutes and there were many good questions which took another 15 minutes. Final interview was scheduled with VP however the process took so long I ended up taking a position with a different company.

    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Three stages, extremely and unnecessarily long. Required panel interview, large group presentation, one-on-one interview, phone interview, presentation submission, large group Q&A. Interview questions were redundant and each stakeholder group was looking for something different which was not obvious and often conflicted with each group, so really depended on who the decision makers were (actual decision makers) and whose feedback would garner the most weight, which was not readily made available.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you work with a varied audience with many differing perspectives? What is your 'vision' in this position? What is your management style? What is your project management experience? What is your experience in developing learning programs?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They advertised the open position online. I then submitted my application with references to them electronically. A few weeks later, they contacted me to set up an interview. The interview was a phone interview with a committee of 3 members who were professors. It lasted about 25 minutes. They asked basic questions and there were no real surprises.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Interview

    Interviewed with department Administrator, Program Specialist, Manager for first round of interview, then with the addition of physicians and staff for second interview. The people were very nice, and the interviews were primarily about experience and what my goals were. For me, it felt like a good fit. I was told after the second interview that I was one of two that was up for the job. The manager was going abroad for the holidays and called before departure and told me to "hang in there" and hoped to contact my references before she left, and if not, would have the Program Specialist do so while she was gone. So I alerted my references about the upcoming contact and it never happened. In addition, the week the manager returned I waited until the end of the week before contacting. After sending an email, it was never returned. I waited another week and sent another email which was finally returned by the manager...and was told that she did not return my previous email because she did not have the answers yet...I would have appreciated her telling me that rather than ignoring my email for a week. I was told to wait again, and it was not for another nearly two weeks where a letter arrived in my mailbox that I did not get the position. Managers should not say they are contacting references if they have no intention...it was a bit humiliating to give my references a heads up and them having to tell me they were not contacted.
    The Administrative Program Specialist was very welcoming which I appreciated. The physicians were wonderful as well as staff. The overall time of this process was about three months.

    Lead Accountant - UW Madison Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison in August 2014.

    Interview

    Three stages....first, written response to the "exam" which is the actual application part, consisting of three to four or more questions. The telephone interview came next and they emailed me about an hour before with more questions they wanted to ask. The telephone interview was with a panel of 3-4 people, and is extremely difficult to gage as you can not read their expressions or body language. Finally the in person interview was between two groups of four people each time. And again they emailed me two pages of questions which you can prepare responses to ahead of time.
