    Advancement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Worcester Polytech (Worcester, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was selected for an interview and met within a weeks time. Originally I was told I was to meet with 4 people at 2 different times, I ended up meeting with 3 people at one time. I had thanked the interviewers and followed up numerous times. I eventually found out they hired someone else when I researched the department online. They never informed me they chose another candidate. It would have been professional to follow up with me and let me know, just be honest.

    Instructional Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Worcester Polytech (Worcester, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was done through Skype and felt much more of a "get to know you" situation. As much as they interviewed me, I was able to interview the core team and really get a sense as to whether they would be a good fit for me as a professional. The second interview involved spending 3 hours on campus. Prior to coming to campus, I was asked to send a portfolio with examples of my design work. First I met with the Associate Director and she debriefed me a bit. The next part involved having a variety of staff - tech team members, faculty, and others - at a table shooting questions at me from all angles for over an hour. It was incredibly stressful at points, but the core team that I had Skype'd with originally were very supportive and acted as buffers. Following the interview, I was given a tour of the campus and was able to ask questions as they cropped up, as well as meet some of the team members outside of an interview setting. The day was wrapped up by going over benefits with an HR representative.

    Librarian Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Worcester Polytech (Worcester, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was the same intense dog and pony show that is typical of institutions this size and reputation. I got some bad vibes during the interview and had pretty much decided I wasn't going to take the job if it was offered (which it wasn't), but the call I got felt unnecessarily harsh. It felt like they were rubbing it in that I wasn't being offered the job. I was told "your qualifications don't match our needs" and I wanted to response "then why did you bring me to campus?" but I didn't. Also, it took forever to get reimbursed for my travel expenses.
