    Technology Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fordham University (Bronx, NY).

    Interview

    Applied by email. Called in for the interview by email in 2-3 weeks. Office assistant is very polite and helpful. First interview was with the director consisting of a combination of case and behavioral interview. Lasted 45 minutes. I liked the director's attitude.

    Next week, assistant emails for a second interview with a senior guy and a meeting with "Future colleagues" on the same day. The senior guy was just going through the interview for tge sake of it. He even said that he can influence decisions for the position ( attitude!). His interview was mostly based on my experience. About 30 mins...
    then comes the meeting with colleagues. There were 4 of them. All were friendly and approachable. They ecen asked me how I plan to commute giving me the impression that I am a top candidate for them. The meeting with them was casual and informative
    .

    I left the premises after both interviews about 2 months back. Still haven't heard anything. I followed up once asking if a decision has been made but never got a reply. Wish they responded since I was one of the top 3 to make it to round 2.

    I don't believe in thank you emails since its business - they pay us to work 7-8 hours a day. What to thank employers for? We spend time too meeting with them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fordham University (Bronx, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Drawn out and torturous. Interview bordered on abusive mental cruelty. Racist remarks were made in regard to other candidates that were vying for the same position. It felt unlike an interview and much like blackmail. Psychotic future boss conducted the interview, and was so incompetent that it was obvious that she had no idea what she was doing and was completely unprepared. Completely unprofessional.
