Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SUNY Potsdam in May 2012.

Interview Details

Submitted an application through school's website and received initial communication within approx 1 week. Applied for two positions so my first interview was for both of them (not recommended). Phone interview with director, box office manager, production manager, and girl who had the job i was applying for.

Some of the questions they asked:
1. Tell us about yourself and why you are qualified for this position
2. What are some of the tools you use to stay organized
3. Tell us about your experience managing a staff
4. Tell us about your experience with educational programming
5. Why do you want to move here

Second phone interview came 1-2 weeks later as I had been narrowed down to one of the two jobs I had originally applied for. Met with director, girl in my position and someone from the foundation funding the position. Most of the questions were the same.

Third interview came a week after that. This was in person in Potsdam and they offered to cover travel expenses up to $1,000. No flexibility on date and time, but I decided to make it work since they were reimbursing. In person interview was very pleasant. Let me meet with HR to discuss benefits package (which was very nice I might add). Were going to give me a tour of campus and town were it not for inclement weather. Scheduled time for me to have coffee with the girl in the position currently to ask any questions I might have and were also willing to take me out to dinner afterwards. Met with director, girl in current position, 2 fine arts faculty members and the dean of the school of music. Biggest part of that interview was a writing exercise. Wanted me to take an upcoming show, read up on it, write a press release and then come up with marketing and educational programming ideas. Had 45 minutes to do this.

Overall a very good experience.
