I worked at Hamilton College - New York (More than a year)
Great working environment, excellent community spirit
Cold weather most of the year around
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hamilton College - New York (Clinton, NY).
I interviewed for a staff position at a cultural organization on campus. I had a phone interview, which I would say was more extensive than most I've had, and then a day of in-person interviews at the office in which I'd be working. Overall, it was a good experience--interviewers were friendly and gracious, they made sure to show me around the facilities/campus, and I got to meet my potential coworkers, all of which helped me assess my level of interest in the position. They were also helpful and communicative when I was making travel plans (I was traveling in from another state).
I've never received a rejection from either the hiring manager or the human resources office. Considering the time I spent traveling to the interview and back, this is really disrespectful and has certainly tanked my impression of the organization. I realize "ghosting" on candidates has become common, but there's really no excuse for not getting in touch with a candidate to let them know the outcome of the search and thank them for their time.
