    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Brooklyn, NY) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Many people in the room, gardeners and management. All very friendly but a bit intense. Each asked general questions about me, then some plant related questions as well. Nothing too difficult. There was a pre-interview briefing which was helpful, then a long wait and the meeting itself.

    Program Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Northampton, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had a quick interview over the phone. Friendly voices that did not intimidate. There was the usual cover letter and resume in addition to two lesson plan samples. They sounded interested in the lesson plan and wanted to know more about it. They were also willing to conduct over the hone interviews. This is good since most college students are still in school during April and may not be able to go to New York.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked questions like describe a problem you once faced and how you over came it? How did you come up with your lesson plan?   Answer Question
