    Pros

    SVA is a great college to work for as an administrative employee. Small enough that you're not lost in the shuffle and it feels like a community, but large enough that there are many different departments and individuals to interface with, which keeps things interesting. My boss is very cool and flexible - and he understands the importance of work-life balance. This is a great place to work if you have business acumen, but you want to apply those skills in an environment that values art and creativity. The benefits are great -- free tuition!?!

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement, although there are some opportunities.
    Salary range is probably slightly lower than comparable positions at other colleges/universities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your employees and recognizing them for a job well done. Allow more advancement opportunities to those who deserve it.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your marital status?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    extremely low pay / unpleasant experience w/ supervisor
