    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SUNY Albany.

    Interview

    One on one interview with manager who would possibly be your team member. This is a small department and manager is your team members.They look for a specific set of skill in you depending on the project they have in hand. In my case the were not sure about the technology they were going to use for the development of the software package. So it was a generic interview.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SUNY Albany.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone screen with the hiring committee. The committee was five or six folks, some of whom worked in the office. They asked the usual run of questions; "Tell us about yourself", etc. They gave ample opportunity for me to provide details of my qualification through several behavioral interview questions. This was followed by an in-person interview with the committee, director and a presentation. It was a pretty standard interview process. All involved were very kind and accommodating.

    Interview Questions

    • Creating a presentation is an expectation for this type of role...that doesn't make it less nerve-wracking.   Answer Question
