I have been working at Skidmore College (More than a year)
Good work environment, sense of community
poor communication on occasion, could be better pay
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, NY) in September 2016.
Worst experience ever. Began with the online portal with auto receipt. Had inside/friend in dept forward resume. Had initial phone interview that was promising in August. Brought in Sept 14 for in person with "search committee". Asked timetable-the manager wanted October but cautioned would be lucky if person could start Nov 1. Called and emailed manager multiple times. Emailed contact in HR to ask for the "thanks but no thanks". Did not receive that email until....DEC 1. If they treat potential employees like this, I can only imagine how poorly they treat employees. Typical elitist liberal arts college who don't believe they are....
