    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Berkeley College.

    Interview

    I applied and was recommended by a Director to the Director of Admissions. I applied and got the recommendation the same. I got a call the same day by the director of that department asking a couple of questions and sent me an assessment. I had only 3 days to take the test since they were hiring quickly. I got a call to schedule a phone interview for the next day. Did the phone interview and was invited to interview face to face with another director the next day. The interview didn't feel like an interview it was more like having a conversations and the questions weren't as hard questions. The questions were not tricky at all. Just more like getting to know you and if you match the requirements in personality and skills. It helped a lot that I'm a Berkeley College Alumni as well so I have great knowledge on the college. The interview took an hour. Got an offer the same day that after noon!

    Academic Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Berkeley College (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    I was contacted to schedule a phone interview. Another member of their team contacted me and asked me to come for an in-person interview before the date of the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • One question: Why did I want to work as an academic advisor? The next 40 minutes of the interview was spent explaining their hiring and advising department vision. They explained they were onboarding quickly and might not be able to provide finalists with the opportunity to give 2 weeks notice to their employers due to a hard start deadline and the volume of interviews they were conducting before beginning offers. They asked if I had questions. I asked 4, and they thanked me for my time and said they would be in touch. I was confused because it seemed like more of an information session about Berkeley than an interview. I am used to this kind of step occurring by phone before an in-person interview. Just as I was leaving they decided to check in on salary, which was not negotiable and was below market compared to what other schools offer in the metro NY area. I decided not to continue the interview process.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Berkeley College (Paramus, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred to the job by Berkeley college career services. The whole process took about a week from the referral, and three days from the interview to be extended an offer.
    It was a very casual, easy going interview, straight to the point.
    The interview was done by the Dean and the Assistant Dean, but only the Dean asked questions and inquired further regarding my experience and how could I benefit the school and students with my background.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me why I wanted to work at Berkeley College, and how was my prior experience related to the job. Another thing they asked, was how could I resolve a student issue and how I would handle conflict. They also asked me how soon could I start working if an offer was made.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Conference room setting. Sat with associate director (who did not speak) and one other person who did not reveal her title. The interview was relatively quick. They had a list of generic questions from online and then opened the floor for me to talk. They were super friendly but it was hard to gauge what they wanted from a candidate.

    Adjuct Professor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley College (Woodland Park, NJ).

    Interview

    Was contacted about a week or so after applying through the college website by a very nice woman. She emailed me and asked me to come in for an interview at the Woodland Park location. She was very friendly and gave me a tour of the campus, which was 2 buildings because construction was still being done on the 3rd building.

    The interview lasted about an hour and was very casual and more discussion based rather than bombarding me with questions. I was offered the position and would have loved to accept it, but they only offered me one class a week which turned out to be $200 weekly. Economically, it didn't make sense for me because I would have needed to work full-time on top of that and the class was only offered twice a week during the middle of the day.

    Interview Questions

    • Is $50/ hour good for you? Because it is a deal breaker for many people...   Answer Question
