    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Berkeley College in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and 2 weeks later received a phone call to schedule an interview. The interview was very general and not many questioned where asked in terms of my skills and previous experience. I felt I was doing the interview and was asking all the questions. Also, I was not told that I would be interviewing with more than one person at a time.

    Interview Questions
    • Not many questions where asked of me. Most of the interview was just informing me of the positions responsibilities and explained their company benefits.   View Answer

He also asked about my office administration skills. He asked what my academic plans were and if this position was aligned to them.

    Department Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Berkeley College.

    Interview Details

    I was called the day after I applied for the job and hired 3 days later. No background check or reference check. It was unprofessional, never got a campus tour, the interview was about an hour and it was a Director level position. I never had orientation or training. It was sink or swim from day one.

    Interview Questions
    • the interview was simple, no hard questions, it lack professionalism because of the lack of questions that should have been asked considering the seriousness of the position. I learned that a Director position is really a entry level position that anyone can attain. Unfortunately, I learned that after I started working there.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They would not negotiate, it was a low paying salary for a Director, I should have picked up on the red flag. But I am paid 6 figures now so its just a matter of time and kissing butt to get to the right salary.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Berkeley College in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Knew the contact person on the job posting and had an interview scheduled quickly. Didn't ask me any questions normal for an interview and said I basically had already done this job in my past position so I was clearly qualified, but did ask lots of questions about my past employer, and told me I was top of the list for the job at the end of the interview. Interviewer's supervisor called for a phone interview next day and indicated they would hire someone else due to that person's special skills. But then the following day they both called on conference to offer me the position.
