    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wellesley College.

    Interview

    Met with an alum in a coffee chat. Very laid back. All about fit questions and chatting many random things. Don't worry about it. The alum told me the interview is just a plus. Not so important for admission.

    Senior Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wellesley College (Wellesley, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    They led me down a long dark hallway in a building that can best be described as Dickensian. Very gothic, and not in a cool way but more like in a depressing, dark way. The weirdest thing is that throughout the interview I swear I heard screams echoing down the long hallway. As if staff or someone were being tortured.

    Interview Questions

    • They must have taken "how to interview" classes from Kim Jong un. They lined up in a row and when the master laughed, they laughed. When the master was serious, they were serious. It was surreal. One by one the panel would fire off standard interview questions, and after I answered they all looked fearfully at their leader for approval.   1 Answer
