    I applied through a friend who was currently a campus center manager and liked the job. The interview was easy, a few fit questions but nothing more. The pay is good and you get to do your homework!

    Network Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amherst College (Amherst, MA).

    Interview

    Initial communications were cordial enough. The telephone interview was fair. Being asked to come to the campus for 7 hours was I feel a little excessive though. By the end of that one gets off one's game and tends to slowly self-sabotage. People were friendly enough except for HR who I feel was looking for cracks in the dyke, took a mildly suspicious approach.

    Interview Questions

    • Being over 40 earlier I was advised to drop the previous jobs over 10 years old or so. HR seemed maybe annoyed, as if I were trying to hide something. They had no bearing on the position anyway.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amherst College.

    Interview

    I was contacted as one of a team, invited as visiting faculty to teach a single seminar, at the recommendation of the senior faculty member taking leave at that time. The vetting was thorough, and though not required, called for a personal visit to the campus.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. This was a civilized procedure, not a gauntlet.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was little to negotiate, as it was a contractual terminal appointment for one semester. The salary was generous on a competitive basis in keeping with the highest standards.

    It was quite simple. I filled out a paper available at the Front Desk and was called 2 days later for an interview the next day.
