      Application

      I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY) in Nov 2017

      Interview

      The interview process was very long (3 months) the longest time was when resume was reviewed (1.5 months) then a phone interview followed by a face to face interview. I applied twice with 3 years in between and the process has not improved and the recruiters I worked with the first year all left by the third year. When they do let you know you have been declined, they just leave you a message with no return call, just a rejection notice via email and on your profile when you log in. I found the process very demoralizing. They lead you on about what a great candidate you are and then keep rejecting you. I have two Master’s degree/years of experience and was rejected on two entry level positions that required GED’s. I was offered positions at other universities with higher pay and positions that fit my skill sets.

      Application

      I applied online. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY) in Mar 2017

      Interview

      4+ months with very little communication. Phone interview followed up with in person interview with various members of the department including Director, staff and subordinates. I was told I was overqualified for the position, but still interviewed. Took 5 weeks to hear about being a finalist and then background check and references. Followed up 4 weeks later with no returned email or call, heard back 2 1/2 weeks later with a VM requesting a call back. They never returned the call, only to find out my result online and a email notifying I was not offered the position. I was not able to attain any feeback since no phone call was returned.

      Interview

      My first contact was via email, which was a first for me. I cleared my schedule and made time to go. After the first interview on site, I was called to come in the next day to meet with a dean. It was a hectic time, but I went. On both occasions, the interview went longer than scheduled. I was told I'd hear soon...and I was never contacted again.
