Great place for an entry level job Really flexible on the hours Good way to make money while going to school
Cheap labor for CUNY Timekeepers are less than helpful for any discrepancies Max tenure is 3 years
Advice to Management
Get more involved with the interns Not many students know about the program

- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation.
Applied and was contacted via email within a few days for an in-person interview, which I set up for the following day or so. Met with my immediate supervisor, a colleague, and the manager in charge of the entire hiring process during the first hour or so. Overall it was a great experience, they were very nice. The interview was more like a conversation; they were clearly assessing me but it was not adversarial and they were open to answering questions themselves. The second part consisted of a written exam that assessed my statistical analysis skills (I was told about this in the initial email invite, so no surprise there). I was told afterwards that they were still interviewing candidates and would get back to me within a week, but I was actually offered the position the next day. The entire process (form application to offer) took less than a week.
Reasons for Declining
I turned down the offer due to salary and rethinking my own career goals (it seemed difficult to truly progress unless you were planning to get a Ph.D.) but it was a great experience overall. Would not mind working with them in the future.
