I worked at Hunter College part-time
Bright students and great co-workers
Limitations in technology and resources
I applied online. I interviewed at Hunter College (New York, NY).
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.
