New School

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at New School (London, England)

Interview

***This was specifically with N Ventures*** Met with three team members for casual chats and discussion of qualifications and projects. Everything went great and I was invited to speak to one more person the following. The fourth interview was with a contractor. Early on, she said she had another client and was looking to eventually offload this job into the new hire. She also said she wanted someone who would stay on for at least a year. She then proceeded to ask me about my long-term career plans. Mind you, this is all for a 10-15 hour a week contract job. Then the interview questions came. Some of them were standard, and others were really odd and poorly aligned with the duties of the job. A week later she told the placement firm I was not a good fit for their "immediate needs." The job was then reposted for a junior role at a lower pay rate. Huh? An exceptionally qualified and experienced colleague had a very similar experience with this person a few months prior (hers was even weirder...) so this does not appear to be an isolated incident. Because of that, I was really skeptical going in, and this experience met my expectations.

The interview process was short and straightforward. They work with a really well-run talent placement agency (at least for contract hires). I appreciated that they seemed as interested in whether I thought they were a good fit for me.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at New School

Interview

The interview process was conducted well in that it was organized and included many people. However, they refused to address salary upfront. I went through hours of interviews, only to get an offer way below my current salary. Wasted a lot of time.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New School (New York, NY) in Apr 2022

Interview

The first interview was about an hour via zoom. I know that sounds daunting but everyone was very kind with well thought out questions and even when I felt like I wasn't giving my most well spoken answer, I never felt judged or misunderstood. They were happy to reword questions if necessary and generally very kind. The second interview was also via Zoom and they asked me to make a 10 minute presentation on a topic of my choosing. I liked this strategy because it was different from a regular interview and while it required some additional work it wasn't super time consuming, nor did I feel like I was giving them ideas they could then use later without crediting me.
