    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Suggestion: An interview works both ways. The hiring manager took pleasure in trying to make the interview difficult. It was very obvious. I knew within a minute I was not interested in working with her.

    Interview

    Interviewed by phone and then days later I was interviewed in person. I was asked a series of questions related to not Windows and Mac platforms. I was then told the job was on hold for 2-3 weeks but only after the I terview was over. This is a terrible way to recruit talent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was an internal candidate, but still had to go through the same basic phone screenings as outside candidates. You interview once with just one person, or this may also be a phone interview. You then spend almost three hours interviewing with various groups of people. You get asked a lot of the same questions each time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty relaxed - you are made to sit before a group of three interviewers, two students and one school official. The questions were pretty standard - of the sort, "what would you do if x happened to a student... tell me of a time when... " and so on.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    the interview process was very lengthy. First comes a general interview by a Talent Requisition Agent and then they forward their review to the hiring manager. Second, another phone interview, then third, an in person interview. The hiring manager took me to lunch and then I met with a team of people as well as the Executive Director. The questions asked were very general in nature and everyone was very helpful and informative. They welcome questions so be prepared to ask. Also bring an extra resume. Even though I was informed that the hiring manager had distributed my resume, some people still did not have it readily accessible. The job did not completely match the online description, but everyone was very clear on what they expect. Overall, it was a good interview experience

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. Interviewer was very pleasant, but questions were unusually broad (ie. "describe yourself in 3 words"), which caught me by surprise because I had expected the interview to focus on substantive qualifications for the position. Also, the interviewer went through my resume and asked me for my "favorite and least favorite part of each job," rather than focusing on skills which were utilized or developed in each position. Interviewer asked for a hard number for a salary expectation rather than just asking about previous salary history, so have your number in mind before you go into the phone interview.
