    Admissions Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercy College.

    Interview

    Absolutely horrendous. The entire interview process was a joke. Between having both of my skype interviews rescheduled last minute (literally minutes before my interview), and having each interview barely last 15 minutes the entire process just seemed extremely unprofessional. The actual interview was easy, but dealing with the organization was frustrating. I ended up taking off for the interviews and then they ended up having to reschedule.

      "Why do you want to work at Mercy College?"

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Went to the main campus. Interviewed with two Assistants and then two Directors. The Assistants stuck to the script and asked the questions on their list. They were very direct and stern. Waited for about a half an hour for the interview with the Directors which was more conversational and genuine.

    Interview

    HR scheduled my first interview incorrectly and had to cancel day before, which I took off from work for. Never left voicemail for me about this. Had to call the morn of.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY).

    Interview

    No assistance with travel to and from the on-campus interview. No offer to cover *any* costs, no pick-up at the entrance or escort to the exit, not even a map to assist with directions. All interview-related payment & planning done entirely by me, the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • During the brief interview with the Dean, she asked me directly about my salary expectations. Although money was not what I had intended to discuss, I answered with my best estimate of the average academic salary in my field. Her response? "We can't afford you."   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mercy College (Bronx, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was a fairly easy interview. They didnt ask any tough questions. The interview didn't feel scripted. It was super laid back and felt more like a conversation with a friend. However, I left feeling unsure until I got the email with the offer.

    Adjunct Professor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy,
    i was actually hired before the interview based on credentials. The interview was more about getting to know me a little. I think they want to find out if you are too crazy to do the job, or flakey and might leave. Since adjunct professors are somewhat disposable, I think there selection is more based on your reference letters than anything else.

    Instructor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mercy College (Dobbs Ferry, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Human Resources Dept. had no idea this position needed filling; online application form was an illogical, antiquated nightmare, suitable only for those who stayed in the same job or same kind of job for years at a time--like in the 1950s! There was no way to include other kinds of information, & they won't accept paper. Submitting CV to them was useless. I contacted academic departments directly & got 3 positive responses! Interviewed on Friday, started teaching Tuesday, with not enough information.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. The position pays $2000. (Interviewer even acknowledged that the pay was "insulting!!)
