    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western Carolina University (Asheville, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a panel of five individuals in a video conferencing room. Very official; resembled something from Star Trek. It was a bit intimidating, only because I was not expecting it. Most of the group was very friendly and professional. It was also intimidating because each time someone would speak the video conferencing camera would zoom in on that person's face, then to the group, and then to the next person. It also felt a bit unnatural to interview over Skype, but I understand why they do it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western Carolina University.

    Interview

    Hiring process was full of miscommunication. There were unclear expectations about salary and advancement. The university failed to pay for much travel. The management at the institution is completely disingenuous and doesn't really care about its employees. There are too many mixed messages coming from this institution.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Carolina University (Cullowhee, NC) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Laid back and friendly environment, just sitting in an office talking one on one with a professor. They are largely just curious about your knowledge, experience, and goals, it's really not an overbearing process. It is important that they understand and assess your research background to see if you would be a good fit in the department, and to see to what extent you would be able to conduct studies on your own. There is a lot of mentoring so it's not like they are expecting you to be able to do it by yourself right away.

    Interview Questions

    • What literature is relevant to the types of studies you want to conduct.   Answer Question
