    Professional Staff Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York (Clinton, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed for a staff position at a cultural organization on campus. I had a phone interview, which I would say was more extensive than most I've had, and then a day of in-person interviews at the office in which I'd be working. Overall, it was a good experience--interviewers were friendly and gracious, they made sure to show me around the facilities/campus, and I got to meet my potential coworkers, all of which helped me assess my level of interest in the position. They were also helpful and communicative when I was making travel plans (I was traveling in from another state).

    I've never received a rejection from either the hiring manager or the human resources office. Considering the time I spent traveling to the interview and back, this is really disrespectful and has certainly tanked my impression of the organization. I realize "ghosting" on candidates has become common, but there's really no excuse for not getting in touch with a candidate to let them know the outcome of the search and thank them for their time.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York (Clinton, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is just a way for the office to get to know your personality and your ability to represent the college well. It involves a written application to demonstrate your knowledge and passion for the college. There is also an interview with the majority of the deans, your potential colleagues, to assess how you can articulate yourself in a clear and professional manner.

    Admission Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York.

    Interview

    The interview lasted for a whole day. I first met with current student representatives in a group interview format. They were very concerned with an outsider's ability to fully represent the school. I also ate lunch with them and while it wasn't formally part of the process, I'm sure conduct during lunch counted in the evaluation. I then met with the Director of Admissions for a one on one interview and then other associate directors for another group interview. The interview ended with a tour around campus and a stop at the HR office to discuss benefits and salaries.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York in June 2011.

    Interview

    it was a whole business day of interviews, each interview containing a group of 4 or 5 people in separate teams. I was first contacted and had my first interview with the manager of the team before the series of interviews. I heard back from them within two weeks, which was pretty quick. The interview process was pretty standard, so as long as you prepare for the questions, you'll be fine.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York in March 2009.

    Interview

    This interview remains my number one "weird interview". There was not a single question that was specific to the actual job I applied for. Everyone on the committee wanted to know what I knew about their field .....hmmm.... The only questions that could pertain to the job was about knowledge of toxic waste disposal......hmmmm...twenty interviews later, still remains my utmost strange interview experience.

    Interview Questions

    • They were all difficult because they did not pertain to the job I applied for. Seems like they were not familiar with my field and opted to ask questions about their respective areas.   Answer Question
