Mefites who been on either side of an NYC co-op board interview, what questions should we prepare ourselves to answer? Especially interested in unusual phrasings of the standard questions, unusual questions, and illegal questions. Examples inside.
- unusual phrasings of standard questions: E.g., until I started reading about this, I didn't realize that "How do you like your job?" meant, "How secure is your job?" I'd appreciate any other advice on how to translate from the question asked to the information they really want.
- unusual questions: If you ask or have been asked a question that doesn't appear on the usual lists, what do you ask? And what do you hope to hear?
- illegal questions: I'm told that many co-ops will outright ask for occupation, even though in NYC that's protected, and some will ask indirect questions to elicit information about other protected classes. What are some examples of such questions, and how do you recommend we respond to questions that touch on protected information?
