    Positive Experience
    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.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY (US)) in December-2014.

    Interview

    Very rude woman whose current student workers did not follow up. I emded up calling at 9 am to follow up a confirmation for a 2pm call. The Director answered and basically was very nice but when tne rep called she seemed very embarrassed that the Director had delivered the message. Eitjer way she called and spoke plainly and quickly , as though mocking my voice with undertones of protocol almost like a robot. I question if she just called for affirmative action quotas . Very rude.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY (US)) in October-2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and didn't hear back from HR until almost a year later. I received an email stating that they were setting up interviews and was given days and times that I could come in. I replied back and had an interview a week later.

    The day of the interview I came in and had to call the person interviewing me so that someone could come get me by the elevators (who never showed up) but some random person walking past the doors let me in. Once I arrived at the location I was greeted by the receptionist at the desk. She let my interviewer know that i was here and she came out within 5 minutes. She came with a few forms for me to fill out and offered me something to drink. After I filled out my forms I gave them back to the receptionist and went into the office about 2 minutes later. Overall the interview took about 30-45 minutes. It was a very relaxing interview.

    After the interview it took about a month before I received a response about the job. I knew it was going to be long before I received a response because I was notified in the beginning of the interview that this would be a long process.
