    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation.

    Interview

    There are several different interviews before you can get hired. But you must be a CUNY student or recent graduate. The first interview will be held on campus, if you pass, you will be able to apply openings according to your campus manager's handout. The second will be held in the city, the address varies each year. During the second interview, you will be able to talk with the organizations you applied before from the handout. If you didn't get hired during the interview, the program will assign an organization to you to work with.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    -I received a phone call from an employee from the CUNY 311 project. it was an over-the-phone interview. It was a very casual conversation because I was not told that the phone call was the first part of the interview process.

    -In a few minutes, I received an email from the employee about whether I was still interested and given interview dates to choose from.

    -The in-person interview was a one-on-one interview with another employee. It was very comfortable and laid-back. It was about why I wanted the job and my customer service experience. We went through my resume and transcript. There was also a roleplay scenario.

    -Then I was given two tasks and asked to use the 311 website to answer the questions. I was given 30 minutes.

    -Overall, it was a wonderful experience. The interviewers were very nice.

    Everything was easy, the entire interview went through pretty smooth. No surprise questions. Because it was a work study type of position, so they didn't ask any trick questions that were particularly difficult to answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (Flushing, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted through an email to schedule an interview.I thought the interview was going well answered all the questions during what was a five minute interview.Thought I had a chance at getting the open position because of the qualifications that I have for the job.In actuality they already had someone in mind already that they knew they were going to hire the person in charge of hiring just had to make themselves look good and interview more than one person. In the future if you have someone in mind why bother wasting other candidates time if they never had a fighting chance to get the position anyway.It just to toy with people's emotions and make it seem that you may get a job that was already closed.The hiring manager at Queens college basically told me this on the phone that they already had someone else chosen in mind for the position even before my interview thanks for being finally honest with me at the Barry Commoner Center

    Research Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation.

    Interview

    Applied and was contacted via email within a few days for an in-person interview, which I set up for the following day or so. Met with my immediate supervisor, a colleague, and the manager in charge of the entire hiring process during the first hour or so. Overall it was a great experience, they were very nice. The interview was more like a conversation; they were clearly assessing me but it was not adversarial and they were open to answering questions themselves. The second part consisted of a written exam that assessed my statistical analysis skills (I was told about this in the initial email invite, so no surprise there). I was told afterwards that they were still interviewing candidates and would get back to me within a week, but I was actually offered the position the next day. The entire process (form application to offer) took less than a week.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your research goals and areas of interest?   Answer Question
    • How does your current job relate to this one (at the time I was in a different field)?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I turned down the offer due to salary and rethinking my own career goals (it seemed difficult to truly progress unless you were planning to get a Ph.D.) but it was a great experience overall. Would not mind working with them in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (Long Island City, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was assigned to the TLC offices in Long Island City. The hiring process was pretty quick. I didn't get interviewed by the Research Foundation directly. Rather, The Taxi and Limousine Commission interviewed me. After applying I received a call in about a week. I was then interviewed by the director and supervisor of my department. They explained the nature of the job, and what to expect. It honestly felt more like a conversation than an interview.
