    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houghton, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Houghton College (Houghton, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Initial interviews (2) were held over the phone. The in-person interview consisted of various question/answer sessions with administrators and the department. A guest lecture was given in my discipline. I was required to drive to the interview as funds were not available for a plane ticket. Following the one-day interview I ate breakfast with the Department chair and returned home. 3 days after the in-person interview, an offer was made.

    Negotiation

    I attempted to negotiate for increased retirement benefits and compensation but the college was unwilling to change their offer. As this was my only job offer, I accepted it. Later negotiations to seek a raise based on merit was declined by the administration. Houghton is a fair share institution. As a result, it does not matter if you teach overtime, volunteer, publish, or participate outside your job role. Compensation will remain the same.

    Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houghton, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Houghton College (Houghton, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Short and lacking. The head of HR and Chief Financial Officer conducted the interview. He asked me questions that seemed like they were out of a 1990's HR manual. He seemed disinterested and quite frankly, lazy.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard and shallow interview questions. The head of HR acted like he couldn't either way.   1 Answer
