    Discovery Guide Interview

    Interview

    Be prepared to stop at the front desk with photo ID for scanning otherwise the security dude will yell at you. Said dude cannot type. He can barely work a computer. He pecks with two fingers and then gives you a sticker to wear on your shirt. I should have just thrown it away as once you're in, nobody cares. Next, waited around for a while for a tag-team interview by two other dudes. They didn't seem very experienced. They read questions off a clipboard. One was overly chatty while the other glared a lot. Be prepared to answer safety concerns about being alone (no partners) outside all day and sometimes nights not to mention winter cold. Sample question: What's your favorite memory of the park? Have interesting, specific short stories ready to tell. They want to be entertained. You'll be alone all day outside in the park, there's no partner system. They will let you know "up front" (which really means After you've traveled there for the interview) that the schedule is inconsistent: Available shifts require every other weekend and holidays are mandatory. Hope this helps future interviewers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Central Park Conservancy (New York, NY) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Extremely well run organization with hard working, dedicated personnel. During the interview, I was asked about my previous experience and skills. They wanted someone to provide executive support the Vice President. The candate must have executive calendar management experience excellent gramatical skills, and be able to learn new skills quickly. The people in the office were landscape architects who were responsible for managing and maintaining Central Park under a contract with the NYC Parks Department. Some of the software applications used were adobe acrobat, groupwis, visio, MS Word and MS Excel. It was a very casual office environment.
