    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Minnesota.

    Interview

    Very informal, just wanted to get to know who I was. Asked basic behavioral questions but did not seem to worried about my ability to complete the job. I was referred, this may be why they seemed extra lenient. Overall, very good experience.

    Student Counseling Center Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    First I was contacted for a 10 minute interview over the phone which was kinda pointless considering it was with 3 people. I was constantly confused with who was addressing me. I was then called within two days for a in person interview.

    My in person interview was a waste of my time. The job was very straightforward and I felt like I was being disqualified because of my gender during a few questions. I was told “you would be the first male in this position, we are not sure about that.”

    I then sent a follow up email after 4 days, they did not respond. The end.

    Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    In-person, group interview. I was provided with a couple of technical questions that lacked context. The team seemed incredibly paranoid about discussing their environment. I don't know anyone that would take a job without knowing what the environment is like beforehand. Eventually I was able to figure out the job was just looking at logs all day, rather than developing and testing security solutions as claimed by the job description.

    Almost all of their questions were stereotypical of an interview: "How do you work with others?", "How do you deal with conflict?", "Give me an example of a time when you X or Y." It reminded me of the interviews I would have back in high-school when working as a cashier, retail associate, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota.

    Interview

    The interview was simple just like any student worker interview would be. Especially for a position as easy and common sense full as this one. the manager was interested in learning about me as a person and not just as an employee

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN (US)).

    Interview

    The interview I had was an ambush. A room full of interviewers and me. I would have handled the interview better from my perspective by informing my host that it would not be my way of inviting a guest into my "home".

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was very hectic and was late to start. I felt like I did less talking than the interviewer and as it was only scheduled for a half hour, I left feeling like I knew very little about the position. I was disappointed that the hiring person never followed up as to the job progress even after I emailed more than once. I'm not even sure the position was ever filled.
