    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at St. John's University (Staten Island, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I learned of this interview through pure serendipity. It seems that much information at St. John's is disseminated in this way. The interview itself, however, had nothing to do with chance and everything to do with (a) My resume and (b) How I presented myself. The gentleman who interviewed me deemed my resume impressive, seemed to enjoy my company, and proceeded to hire me on the spot.

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at St. John's University.

    Interview

    Got interview call within days of applying. Except one person on the committee, rest looked at running a program in higher education as a cop shop. Instead of asking questions they just raved about jobs in their prior lives. Two were outright rude in the way that they asked questions. Did not ask any relevant questions. Just told me from the get go why I would not fit the program. I was left wondering for the whole duration why exactly did they call me? Didn't they read my resume? Waste of time and money (no mileage either). I wish there was an option of irrelevant under interview difficulty.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at St. John's University (Jamaica, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Basic interview with the manager and student supervisors. They interview you as a group usually 5-10 people per session and they also go over the telephone script you'll need when calling alums for donations. Once they give you the script you have to do a call demonstrations so they can see how you would handle telephoning people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at St. John's University (Queens Village, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was able to coordinate a one-day interview during one of their busiest events on campus for me, which I was immensely impressed and thankful for!

    The hiring manger contacted me directly. I spent very little time with human resources.

    I was hired, and I did find their New Hire Orientation somewhat lacking. I started off-orientation, but learned more on my own that i did at the orientation itself (which was a half-day). My other experiences, employers required at least 1.5 to 2 full days to go through everything.

    Negotiation
