    I worked at Skidmore College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay isn't much because you are a student but the people are nice and great!

    Cons

    The pay isn't much because you are a student. There isn't much opportunity to grow either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work :-)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    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....

    Interview Questions

    • Could tell immediately they weren't really interested in anything I had to say. More to share how bureaucratic their department was and if I could tolerate that.   1 Answer
