    Senior Programmer/Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Albany, NY
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SUNY Albany (Albany, NY).

    Interview

    The job description was vague because the hiring manager was confused and ignorant of what the department needed.

    Interview Questions

    • None - the search committees were pleasant and easy to speak with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None - I was lied to about this being a permanent job, which it was not. Only after starting work was I again lied to and told it was permanent, but I needed to sign a term contract anyway. Beware of lying hiring managers. They are even worse than I could possibly describe.

    Teaching Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SUNY Albany (Albany, NY) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I spoke with a person who made the hiring decision and based on my qualifications I was hired. I don't think the in-person "interview" was really that serious. It was more of an academic advisement situation. I assume the professors just checked out my resume and decided it based on that alone. I'm not sure any interview is actually required for a teaching assistant position. Those positions are relatively straight forward.

    Temp Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.
