Instructor Interview

Dobbs Ferry, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Mercy College in September 2013.

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