    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

    Easy Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    The whole process is pleasant. The first step is to take a subject test. So your test result could be profiled. You could stop by the math lab to check if you pass the exam. They will contact you if you pass and they need tutors. The interview is done with three supervisors. Each asks few questions. You may expect to explain a simple algebra question. The whole process is pleasure.
