    Interviewed by several professors within the department.

Also asked about prior teaching experience and what you would be interested in teaching. Written application followed up by group and one and one interviews with professors which delved deeper into these questions

    Interview

    The position was available at the beginning of the fall 2014 semester. I left my previous job at the athletics department because the pay wasn't all that great. The IT position seemed more mentally stimulating and the salary was slightly better. A friend that was already working there mentioned my name, and about a week after I was contacted by the manager.

    Interview

    I first met with the principal investigator, she pushed HR every day in order to get me to start working there as soon as possible. Unfortunately Hr takes a very long time getting back to people. I waited around 2-3 months until I was officially hired.

    Interview

    Made me sit in some corner until hiring manager picked me up. Spent 3 minutes with me, and then accompanied me to another guy who was supposed to be some sort of senior in IT (he was a kid almost half my age). Kid bombarded me with all kind of NYU real-life scenarios that naturally I wasn't familiar with, followed by the question "so tell me, what would you have done?". Process lasted about one hour. Never heard back a single word from NYU.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was long, confusing and boring. It was mainly, unprofessional. I spent one hour on the phone and another hour and a half in person. People who were hiring seemed very confused. The job wasn't actually that great, but they seemed to be hiring a president. Today, 5 months later, they still haven't hired someone for that position. New York University is something like Department of Motor Vehicles, but in a nicer neighborhood.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very cordial and relaxed. My two interviewers were great; they asked honest questions, listened attentively, and felt there were no "trick" questions. It helps when you're interviewing for a position you have a real passion for, I suppose, but they allowed my passion to come through. It felt more like a discussion than an interview, and most importantly I felt valued as an educator, as opposed to a *mere* adjunct they had to plunk into their curriculum.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. The salaries for adjuncts - unless, I suppose, you were a *star* adjunct they were courting - are fixed, and I was more than happy with the offer.

    I applied online – interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very rude woman whose current student workers did not follow up. I emded up calling at 9 am to follow up a confirmation for a 2pm call. The Director answered and basically was very nice but when tne rep called she seemed very embarrassed that the Director had delivered the message. Eitjer way she called and spoke plainly and quickly , as though mocking my voice with undertones of protocol almost like a robot. I question if she just called for affirmative action quotas . Very rude.
