    Graduate Student Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SUNY (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I had a series of interviews with several of the faculty. Some were warm, but I could tell that there were departmental tensions lurking below the surface. Faculty seemed strained and definitely hedged in their responses to my questions about the work environment. The department is in a state of transition, and I'm sure political fault lines have sprung up as a result.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Delhi, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SUNY (Delhi, NY) in May 2008.

    Interview

    I applied online through the SUNY Delhi website, included CV and cover letter. VERY important to make it apparent as to how you will benefit the college as well as what you will take on to lessen the load of current employees. While a resume' may document your experience, those of you taking a new adventure into academia need to do some research and become comfortable with the creation of a Curriculum Vitae. These include papers written, presentations, areas of expertise, assocation memberships; not limitedd to one page at all.

    After I applied, the wait was at least 6+weeks; while this job may be #1 in your head, the academic search committee moves much slower than the outside world. Remember that they are still teaching classes, etc while you are waiting for a response. I received an email to schedule a phone interview; their system was antiquated and used a speakerphone for the interview, so back and forth communication was clunky. I has three people in the room interviewing me. Basic questions.

    I then received an email to set up a campus visit and interview. Time scheduled was not near enough and portions were rushed. I was given a FULL campus tour and when in dress clothes in the summer, it made for a worn appearance later during my sample lecture. Lunch was scheduled and the entire department was present; though I was starving, I couldn't eat because I was being asked difficult questions that needed to be treated professionally.

    After lunch, I lectured and was cut off time-wise because they had run late on other parts of the interview. I was then 1:1 interviewed by the Division Dean, Human Resources, and the Provost. It was a whirlwind and exhausting because these were true interviews and not just chats.

    The focus was what could I bring to SUNY Delhi, what was special about me, how would I make my mark on campus and professsionally. You are taking on a workload to ease their burden. You must love committee work and advising students. You are also very excited to take on more hours than the typical professor will somewhere else.

    Negotiation

    I was given a range salary wise. I was staunch on my number but I think if I went over their highest number, I may have been refused. They were pretty set on the range. STATE SCHOOL with a STATE BUDGET!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SUNY (New Paltz, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Two-step hiring process. Great questions were asked and the process went by very smoothly. I found out within about two weeks. It was an group/panel and while slightly intimidating, completely understandable why the process is what it is and I highly recommend leaving it this way.
