    I have been working at Purdue University part-time

    Pros

    Very nice and quite environment to do research with supportive admins from the school to help you.

    Cons

    Nothing particular to my mind, maybe they could increase the pay more?

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lafayette, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Purdue University (Lafayette, IN) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen, followed by day long multiple face to face interviews with varying individuals in the department. Had to prepare a presentation on a specific program and my ideas to improve the situation.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult was a question regarding goals for the department. Difficult only because at the time the only research I had done online and did not paint an accurate picture of what the current issues with the department were.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Accepted the offer, and negociated the vacation.
