I interviewed at New England Aquarium

Interview

The process was fairly easy. I applied online, and heard back about the first round of interviews which were held at the main Aquarium. After that, I was offered a second interview which was held at the Animal Care Center in Quincy. Soon after, I heard back about the position- I received a phone call and later an email.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at New England Aquarium in Oct 2019

Interview

Two interviews, one with a member of the Volunteer/Intern team and then one with my now line manager in Vis Ed. Both were held in person but I could have chosen to have the first interview via phone/skype. I declined this as I feel I come across better in person. The team organising the interview were helpful and kind.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New England Aquarium

Interview

Easy interview process on the phone/Zoom. Interviewer started with big picture description of the NEAq's mission, then asked me to talk about myself before asking some standard questions. Ended with asking some quick questions where I had to pick one of two answers, supposedly to find a better fit for me in terms of team/supervisor. I interviewed right before a month-long winter break and didn't hear back - he told me to contact them if I didn't, but I also decided afterwards that I was no longer interested.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New England Aquarium (Boston, MA) in Mar 2019

Interview

There were perhaps an excessive number of interview steps (phone, then 3 in person interviews for a mid-tier position), which would have been difficult if I hadn't left my previous job already. However the process was very enjoyable - everyone was kind and accommodating and during the final interview my supervisor-to-be walked me around the Aquarium while we spoke. I was able to be very frank about what I was looking for and heard a lot of great stories about working for the Aquarium. Everyone I spoke to was happy to be working here.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New England Aquarium (Boston, MA) in May 2017

Interview

I first had a phone interview and then the next week I had an in person interview with the same guy. From there I interviewed with the box office supervisors. After I was done they let me walk around the aquarium for free. Everyone was very nice so I wasn't nervous once I started talking to them.
