    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cuny Research Foundation (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    A panel of approximately ten persons consisting of current employees, directors and management discuss with you your strengths, weaknesses and passion for research. The setting is stern, sunny and glamorous. My interview got a little intense. I may have overdone showing them how passionate I was. But I really did care deeply for research and it was my dream at the time.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    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
