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

    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

    Interview Questions

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There was a phone call screen which lasted about 5 minutes where I was asked a few brief questions such as why I wanted the job, my related experience, my experience with statistics. Within a week they scheduled me for an in-person interview with 2 people, the interview lasted just over an hour. The interviewers were very friendly and the whole experience was very positive. I did not hear back from them following the interview for over 3 weeks, when I contacted them they told me that the position was being cancelled due to funding difficulties.

    • I was asked about previous research experience, familiarity with statistics (give examples), ability to prioritize between tasks.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Easy and direct, no major challenges. The faculty just discussed the position and what was needed. CUNY Research Foundation allows the faculty to do much of their own hiring and then we just need to go to HR to process the paperwork. Payment is quick and reliable.
