    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yeshiva University (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    One in person interview that was quick (half hour) with three faculty members followed by an Excel computer skills test and a document formatting exercise. The interview questions were standard with no curve balls or anything unexpected. The only thing that threw me off was that is was very quick and cut short towards the end because they had another candidate scheduled to come in immediately after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Yeshiva University (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. You sit in an office and the head librarian asks you what year you are in YU/RIETS. Additionally, you need a reference, but if you put down as a reference someone the library knows of (which is most of the rabbinical staff) then you're in.

    Director of Advertising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Yeshiva University (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in July and was first contacted at the end of August. I had a phone interview with HR and was invited back for the 2nd round in September. The 2nd round consisted of meeting with HR in person, and then 2 more meetings with 4 professionals. It was a fine process, everyone was very pleasant and professional. My only complaint is that after such an intense interview process it would have been nice if they followed up with me in some way or another, if only to just tell me that the position has been filled.

    Just one interview in the YU finance department. It probably lasted 20 minutes no longer. It was a brief and very easy interview.
