    Event Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at New School in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Responded with interview notice after 2 days. Interview was 15 minutes and the interviewer seemed to be more distracted and focused on what they wanted for lunch. She was asking questions off of a sheet and just didn't seem too interested in general.

    Academic Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at New School in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by someone from HR who did a phone screening. A few weeks later I was contacted by someone to set up an interview. This interview was with three people and the conversation was friendly and thoughtful. Another two weeks and I was contacted that I'd been put forward to round 2, this interview was again friendly whilst still being formal and informative for both myself and the interview panel. They stated they had hoped to make a decision by the end of the following week, two weeks later I was told that it was going to be a few more weeks and then a month after that I reached out again and was told that they had decided to continue on with another candidate.

    Senior Academic Adviser Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at New School in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a telephone interview first for over 45 minutes which was informative and discursive. The interviewer picked up on some aspects of my resume' that others had never noticed. Then I was called for an hour's in-person interview and tour of the facility a few weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • The difficulty was that during the personal meeting I was asked to submit my questions, which the interviewer answered fully and directly. I expected to answer some questions in return but wasn't asked any.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at New School.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews with large panels of people, none of whom took much initiative. Most people seemed unprepared for the interview and confused.

    Interview Questions
    • They hadn't prepared specific questions, so they asked generic ones. Come prepared with what you want to get across. You may need to take control of the conversation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They will offer you the lowest amount they think you'll take. Definitely think about what you think is fair before hand. I didn't, and now there are no opportunities for raises, so i regret it.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at New School in January 2011.

    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).

    Interview Questions
    • Standard interview questions, mostly based on technical abilities (comfortable with Microsoft Office, management skills, etc.). No questions pertaining to growth or visions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation, but the offer was generous
