    I worked at Hunter College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed teaching here tremendously because of the energy, curiosity, and engagement of the student body. For the most part, received a lot of guidance and support from department heads and administrators to create new classes to develop the curriculum.

    Cons

    Divisions can be very insular, opting to stay under the radar rather than grow. This had adverse affects on the students who were looking to explore the subject matter further and the longtime adjuncts who had no chance at ever becoming full-time faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time meeting and discussing matters with adjuncts, especially in the smaller divisions. Adjuncts are expected to tackle much more than simply teaching their own classes, they're involved in the day-to-day, semester-to-semester upkeep of the division.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hunter College (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Initial in-person interview conducted by HR. I was not impressed. To begin with, the person who arranged the interview failed to tell me that when I arrived, I had to go across the street to another building first to get a visitor pass, so I was a little late - otherwise I would have been a little early. When I finally went in to the interview room, the person I interviewed with was negative from the start and seemed disinterested in her job. The questions asked were inane and unthoughtful ("did I have scheduling experience?" - my entire resume is full of such experience). Overall, the HR department did a very poor job of effectively representing the institution and "selling" potential applicants on why they should want to work there. The whole experience left seriously questioning how effective the HR department is in attracting and retaining top talent. Given my experience, I seriously doubt they are. I left the interview feeling like I did not want to be part of such an organization and immediately withdrew my application.
