Help Desk/Computer Technical Support Interview

Help Desk/Computer Technical Support
Waltham, MA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Bentley University.

Interview Details – Cucchi, Suzanne (Admin. & Technical Coordinator) contacted me to interview with Fred Bachofner, The Manager of the Help Desk and Computing Services.

I spoke to Fred in the interviewed and he informed he wanted to hire a person who would take a pay cut as the position would only pay about $18 Hourly. He Asked me a few IT related questions, which I answered correctly. ( I have about 10 yrs in the IT industry). After the interview process ended (20 minutes) he mentioned he would notified me the next week of the next step.

I waited the 1 week and not response back from Fred. I email him the next week and still no response. By this time all the high hopes I had being part of this institution were fading away as I realized that these folks were not going to get back at me. Weeks later I review their website portal and the position was still available but I could not apply again since I already had been interview. This position was open for weeks/months - until.

3 months later I received an email notifying me that the position was filled.

I personally think that i should've been at least notified immediately that I did not qualified for this position if they had determined that my 10yrs strong background did not meed their needs.

Bentley University has poor ethical morals for folks looking for a job. they have no respect for people actively seeking employment opportunities and cannot be trusted as a responsible institution due to the fact that they lack commonsense, common cortesy and and deeply self-centered in making more money and reducing cost by paying the least amount of wages as possible.

I used to view this institution as credible but now a-days they are a pathetic, commercial dollar store enterprise without common courtesy.

Interview Question – we are paying around 15-18 hourly - how do you feel about taking a pay decrease ??   Answer Question
