    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY (US)) in May-2015.

    Interview

    I was lucky and didn't have to go through HR. My interview was with two administrative supervisors in the advertised program who were both very knowledgable in what the position would entail. The interview was very conversational, none of the canned HR questions about my greatest weakness, etc. It probably lasted about 20 minutes, and didn't involve any computer tests. I didn't get the job, but it was still a positive experience. From what I'm reading here, it seems to vary greatly depending on the department you are interviewing for.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (Brooklyn, NY (US)) in April-2015.

    Interview

    descriptive interview with multiple people: would-be supervisor, HR rep and two department employees. interview lasted roughly an hour. a lot of their administrative jobs are via a temp agency. I was employed by the temp agency and was interviewing to be placed at NYU. I was told that most contracted individuals are hired a few months in. I was hired a bit quicker because the needs of my employment were to access financial records that only an NYU employee could attain. I was only a temp at NYU for approximately one month - a week of which was paperwork that was performed in order to hire me in. once the decision was made to hire me in, I did a phone interview with my supervisor and an HR representative (after applying for the job online).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Made me sit in some corner until hiring manager picked me up. Spent 3 minutes with me, and then accompanied me to another guy who was supposed to be some sort of senior in IT (he was a kid almost half my age). Kid bombarded me with all kind of NYU real-life scenarios that naturally I wasn't familiar with, followed by the question "so tell me, what would you have done?". Process lasted about one hour. Never heard back a single word from NYU.

    Chief of Staff Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY (US)) in March-2015.

    Interview

    I began the interview process by having a short phone screener with an HR recruiter. He was generally knowledgeable, but didn't have many specifics about the role. From there, I spoke with the outgoing Chief of Staff and then with several direct reports of the executive who I'd be staffing as Chief of Staff. I found the experience of interviewing with the direct reports to be a bit disorganized; their questions were a bit disconnected from the role and one of the reports appeared to be both tired and a bit bored.

    Interview Questions

    • They talked about whether I'd feel comfortable in a Chief of Staff role where I'd have less autonomy and management responsibility than in my previous position. It was a good question.   Answer Question
