I worked at Rhode Island School of Design as a contractor (more than a year)Pros
LOVE the students. Some are entitled, some are grateful, but that's the case anywhere. At the end of the day though, they're so talented and when receptive, make serious progress. Plenty of support from FT faculty too, as long as you ask for it.Cons
As a TA, I needed a job (at least PT) the entire time I was in school. The school is pricey and cost of living in PVD isn't low, so be prepared to get creative with your financing and do it out of passion, never as a means to making a living.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Communication is pretty great, but can always be better - keep it up and keep moving forward.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
Getting an Interview

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Rhode Island School of Design.Interview Details
HR representative called me for the initial phone interview. After the morning phone interview, I was contacted in the afternoon to make arrangements to come to campus the next week. I rearranged my schedule to be available for three days to fly out there, interview for a full day, and fly home.
I had eight short sessions during my interviews. That was fine. They filled up any downtime by showing me around campus, which usually would be fine but it was a very hot and humid day and of course I was in full suit, so I was very uncomfortable.
They told me their timeline was two - three weeks to make a decision. I didn't receive a response to my follow-ups and haven't heard from them since.
Maybe they decided I was a bad fit, but I do expect to be communicated with even if I'm being turned down for a position.Interview Questions

- An interviewer asked how I would take over projects from someone who was unwilling to hand them over, and was pretty obvious she was talking about someone I had interviewed with earlier. It was a very odd moment. Answer Question
