    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hamilton College - New York.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted for a whole day. I first met with current student representatives in a group interview format. They were very concerned with an outsider's ability to fully represent the school. I also ate lunch with them and while it wasn't formally part of the process, I'm sure conduct during lunch counted in the evaluation. I then met with the Director of Admissions for a one on one interview and then other associate directors for another group interview. The interview ended with a tour around campus and a stop at the HR office to discuss benefits and salaries.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hamilton College - New York in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    it was a whole business day of interviews, each interview containing a group of 4 or 5 people in separate teams. I was first contacted and had my first interview with the manager of the team before the series of interviews. I heard back from them within two weeks, which was pretty quick. The interview process was pretty standard, so as long as you prepare for the questions, you'll be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hamilton College - New York in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    This interview remains my number one "weird interview". There was not a single question that was specific to the actual job I applied for. Everyone on the committee wanted to know what I knew about their field .....hmmm.... The only questions that could pertain to the job was about knowledge of toxic waste disposal......hmmmm...twenty interviews later, still remains my utmost strange interview experience.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all difficult because they did not pertain to the job I applied for. Seems like they were not familiar with my field and opted to ask questions about their respective areas.   Answer Question
