    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in Clinton, NY

    I worked at Hamilton College - New York part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Hamilton College French Department offered much flexibility to teaching assistants in formatting their teaching sessions and allowed assistants to be creative in how they presented materials to students.

    Cons

    Teaching assistants were sometimes left with little direction for conducting lessons. Students sometimes arrived at the teaching session unaware of what topics would be covered that week or how to prepare for drills.

    Advice to Management

    Professors should offer more direction to teaching assistants. Teaching assistants should have access to the course syllabus and example drills off of which they can structure their lessons.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hamilton College - New York.

    Interview

    The interview lasted for a whole day. I first met with current student representatives in a group interview format. They were very concerned with an outsider's ability to fully represent the school. I also ate lunch with them and while it wasn't formally part of the process, I'm sure conduct during lunch counted in the evaluation. I then met with the Director of Admissions for a one on one interview and then other associate directors for another group interview. The interview ended with a tour around campus and a stop at the HR office to discuss benefits and salaries.
