    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mercy College.

    Interview

    HR scheduled my first interview incorrectly and had to cancel day before, which I took off from work for. Never left voicemail for me about this. Had to call the morn of. Interviewer seemed very unorganized, disrespectful, and unprofessional. I declined the offer after researching on Glassdoor.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY).

    Interview

    No assistance with travel to and from the on-campus interview. No offer to cover *any* costs, no pick-up at the entrance or escort to the exit, not even a map to assist with directions. All interview-related payment & planning done entirely by me, the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • During the brief interview with the Dean, she asked me directly about my salary expectations. Although money was not what I had intended to discuss, I answered with my best estimate of the average academic salary in my field. Her response? "We can't afford you."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Human Resources Dept. had no idea this position needed filling; online application form was an illogical, antiquated nightmare, suitable only for those who stayed in the same job or same kind of job for years at a time--like in the 1950s! There was no way to include other kinds of information, & they won't accept paper. Submitting CV to them was useless. I contacted academic departments directly & got 3 positive responses! Interviewed on Friday, started teaching Tuesday, with not enough information.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. The position pays $2000. (Interviewer even acknowledged that the pay was "insulting!!)
