    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at New School.

    Interview

    Depends per department and per professor. You will apply online and the department will decide in faculty meetings. This means that knowing your professors is critical from an early part of the year. They should also be aware of your skills and interests. You also choose the specific professor you want to work with.

    Interview Questions

    • No Questions, I knew the professor beforehand and had spoken to him about the job   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at New School (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial one-on-one informal interview with my prospective boss. They asked about points on my resume and then gave me lots of information about the role. I then had two follow up one-on-one interviews with academics, which were also quite informal. All interviews lasted in the range of 30-45 minutes.

    Director of Orientation and Transition Programs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New School (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview/screening and in person interview. The interview panel seemed unprepared and jaded about working at the school yet happy to work with students. The position is new so there wasn't much information that they could provide about the role (e.g., who the position reports to, budget, salary, whether you'll be managing a team or not. Red flag that they weren't interested in my candidacy or were just a mess adjusting to many "new developments" at the school. Witnessed one of the interviewers coaching one of the candidates (who was wearing jeans...) as he left the interview right before I came in. Unprofessional moment, to say the least.

    Office Assistant II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New School (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    2-3 weeks after initially submitting my application online, I received an email from one of the Assistant Directors to come in for an interview. I meet with the Executive Director and two of the Assistant Directors in a nice conference room. The three of them switched back forth asking me 7-10 pre-written questions. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. At the end they informed me that they had a few more people to bring in and since HR can take a while to do their part I should hear back from them within 2-3 weeks or so. Unfortunately, after emailing several times to follow up, I did not receive a response back. After checking the status of my application I noticed that the status of the position had been changed to "Position Filled". Although I had a positive experience, I was a little disappointed in the way I found out that it was filled.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at New School in January 2015.

    Interview

    Two ladies ask every question based on looking my resume. They were looking for some communication specialists for promoting the alumni relationship. So they ask me about my social media skills. They were very nice to talk to but I was super nerves and behaved terribly.It is not about the professional skill or whether you can fit in our team. It is my psychological problem and I just need more practices I guess.
