    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at SUNY Albany (Albany, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was brief as the manager was overwhelmed and really needed someone in the position. Now I am just writing things because glass door makes me write them or it won't submit my work. So I will keep writing things until I hit the minimum required 30 words until then I will keep complaining about the fact that my short comment wasn't enough. I really had already said all I needed to say and there wasn't anything more to say about the issues.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SUNY Albany (Albany, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very relaxed setting. Had interviewed in a Resident Directors office. Two higher-up will always interview you. It could be a combination of students who are already RAs or housing managers (HMs oversee the apartment) or resident directors. Took about 20 minutes. Got a call that evening saying that I got the position. I got hired mid-semester, so the process might be different for you. My friend told me about the position, so I sent my cover letter and resume to the resident director and he contacted me back.

    One on one interview with manager who would possibly be your team member.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at SUNY Albany (Albany, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Was called for an interview about a month after application deadline. Interview consisted of 2 separate ones - one with department staff, and one with a search committee from various offices within the university. Both interviews were extensive, about 2 hours total. It was my first "panel style" interview, so I found the process intimidating, I was told that this style is typical to SUNY - so, be prepared for 8-12 people interviewing you. It was obvious that they have a very orchestrated system for interviewing, one question after another, round-robin style. Not as conversational as I am used to with smaller companies/organizations.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions ranged from general to very specific (relating to the position). Some generic ones like, tell us about yourself, to ones that tested your ability to critique yourself and extend your understanding of certain job functions.   Answer Question
