    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wake Forest University in May 2017.

    A one-way video interview with unlimited time to think and had three chances to record the video. I enjoyed this experience as I wasn't caught off guard and had time to compose my answer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC).

    Interview

    Phone Interview (30 minutes) with Director and Assistant Director. Asked questions about background experience and hypotheticals. Was called within that week to schedule an in-person interview. In-Person interview was a full-day interview (all travel expenses paid). Met with several department team members throughout the day with a mix of individual and group sessions. It was exhausting, but the variety of interactions kept the day flowing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone, In Person. 12 people in one day. Very exhaustive. Lots of different people, no one seemed very prepared. There were good questions, you could just tell it had not been coordinated between the various interviewers. Did not leave much time to learn about the organizations or ask questions.Where do you see yourself in 5 years. What experience do you have in higher ed. Why did you choose to apply. What is a weakness that you have? How would others describe you?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A few questions. Really not that intense at all. It really wasn't an interview at all because this was for work-study so I was essentially given the job. People in the office are great, culture was great

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A very cozy and conversational interview. Applicants were allowed to be themselves and it was more of an intellectual conversation between friends or relatives. Aside from the standard questions, the interviewer wanted to see who you were as a person rather than just a number. It didn't have a time limit and applicants could be as expressible and honest as they liked. They looked at character a lot more than just credentials.
