    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Amherst College.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were cordial enough. The telephone interview was fair. Being asked to come to the campus for 7 hours was I feel a little excessive though. By the end of that one gets off one's game and tends to slowly self-sabotage. People were friendly enough except for HR who I feel was looking for cracks in the dyke, took a mildly suspicious approach.

    Interview Questions
    • Being over 40 earlier I was advised to drop the previous jobs over 10 years old or so. HR seemed maybe annoyed, as if I were trying to hide something. They had no bearing on the position anyway.   View Answer
