    Community Mentor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Willamette University (Salem, OR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process went fairly well, due to the large amount of applicants the time between applying and interviews then receiving an offer was rather extensive. Still the hiring board was often open to question and were real towards the situation and possibility of being hired.

    Director of Marketing, MBA School Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Willamette University (Greensboro, NC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Friendly, timely, the standard cover/CV first, followed by a screening phone call and a search committee interview, remotely. Unfortunately, that group interview, planned as a Google Hangout turned into a phone call, because their equipment tanked. That was unfortunate, because a key interaction component was removed. Post-interview, they got back to me within a week, as promised. The response was, unfortunately, a 'no', but with no reasons given. I wrote back asking how I missed their marks, but as is usual in these kinds of things, I've heard nothing since and would be surprised if I do. That's the single thing I wish had happened. Forget the 20+ hours of prep; to get no feedback at all makes the time wasted. Lawyers, notwithstanding, I really appreciate feedback, good or bad, and the absence of it helps no one.
