I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at New School in January 2009.
Interview Details – I was excited to interview here, and really disappointed by the experience.
My initial contact (search chair, department lead) seemed professional and friendly enough setting up the interview, and on site. Unfortunately, would-be colleagues were non-existent on campus.
Most telling: I was put up at a fleabag of a hotel, and wasn't reimbursed for my considerable travel expenses.
Absolutely no post-interview follow-up.
Sad experience, because the potential of the institution and position was made to sound so promising.

Interview Details – The New School likes to hire from within. I was already working for the University and the interview was mostly a formality, although they did interview other applicants. They didn't seem to take the interview too seriously (which was indicative of senior managements attitude toward the position).

Negotiation Details – No room for negotiation, but the offer was generous
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at New School in April 2010.
Interview Details – I had two interviews-- both were panel. The initial interview didn't seem well-organized; they had only a few questions for me and I would have been out in 15 minutes if I hadn't turned the interview around by asking questions and starting a dialogue between all of us. I received a call back the next day and interviewed again the next week. I was asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation on any subject. The second interview was more formal and included higher ups in the administration. I think it was down to two of us, but I didn't get the offer. The people at the school were very nice and professional, but the group interview feels impersonal. I'd suggest preparing a few questions in advance because they didn't have very many prepared either time.
Interview Question – Give me your five minute pitch about the school and imagine you're talking to a disinterested 17 year old. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at New School in October 2010.
Interview Details – I applied online for a position one to two days after it was posted. About 1.5 weeks later, a person in the recruiters office called me to schedule an appointment with my recruiter for the following week. The phone interview was pretty straight forward as far as standard questions go. They told me about the positions + benefits and then answered any questions I had about the position. They then told me that my answers would be reviewed and that if they were considering me that I would get a call within the next week to set up an in-person interview (they also mentioned that if I didn't hear back I could call the recruiter back about my status- if there was a delay or if was not going on to the next round).
I got a call within the time frame they asked for and they scheduled an in person appointment with me for the following week. I met with a group within that department and again they asked pretty standard interview questions. Very nice group and they got back to me when promised. I didn't get the job but overall I feel that The New School is a very professional place and I still very much hope to work there in the future.

Interview Details – I was contacted by phone by a lovely deptment assistant. They wanted to begin the phone interview process as soon as possible and I scheduled a chat for the next morning. I was called promptly and went through a fairly standard 15 minute phone interview. I should have spent more time reviewing basic question/answer scenarios. No curve balls here.
