    I have been working at School of Visual Arts

    Pros

    Fantastic location in the center of Manhattan. Talented students, and a faculty made up of industry professionals. Good facilities. Supportive administration

    Cons

    Salaries are not as high as they could be in tenured schools. No tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More get togethers within departments wold be great. The once a year Christmas party is an amazing blow out, but does not allow for any networking with the great people who work at SVA.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at School of Visual Arts in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Truly the most bizarre interview I have ever experienced.

    Two of the three people I met were incredibly nice and welcoming. The questions were typical and they barely interviewed me, really. Unfortunately, the interview with the direct supervisor for the position was extremely unpleasant; s/he was verbally hostile and I was asked inappropriate questions. I'm almost 100% sure it's illegal to ask your marital status and sexuality w/in the context of an interview. If it isn't illegal, it's certainly inappropriate.
