    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hofstra University.

    Interview

    Mostly situational questions, really make you feel uncomfortable when they tell you that you're wrong. The interview occurs in their small office with other employees in the room. Unless you answer every question wrong, you'll probably be hired.

    Interview

    I felt that was not a very comprehensive interview. I felt the interviewer could have spent a little more time on the interview. I felt as if she was rushing the entire process or she already had someone for the job

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hofstra University (Hempstead, NY).

    Interview

    I was brought directly to the campus without a phone interview. I first met with the departmental selection committee who asked questions. The tone of the interview was very friendly and was a more "meet and greet" style with a few question directed toward my specific roles and responsibilities. I then taught a sample class while being observed. Once the class was finished I was taken out for a very nice dinner.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hofstra University (Hempstead, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Management had found me through their career website. The interview was very informal, and very casual. I was interviewed by two managers but because of the nature of their work, they knew how to put a candidate at ease. They e-mailed me for an interview, I took the interview, and I had the job, easy as that.
