    Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fordham University.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Clerical Staff In Library Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fordham University in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fordham University in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, I believe, (this was awhile ago) and the entire process was very smooth and simple. I was contacted by telephone to schedule an in-person interview for shortly thereafter. When I got the interview, some basic questions were asked, and after I passed the interview the start date was set for the following Monday.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't say that there were any particularly difficult questions, although since I did not have much administrative assistant experience at that point, I did have to explain how I felt I was qualified for the job.   Answer Question
