Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Western Governors University (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2015.

Interview

The first interview was a phone interview. Basic questions were asked, and the interviewer kept saying "perfect". There were questions about why I thought I would be a good fit for the position, what I knew about WGU, and my schedule including my flexibility. I did not hear back after this interview and have decided to go in another direction.

    Contacted by a recruiter within a day of submitting an online application. Second interview with program manager was within a week. The recruiter was very polite and the interview took about 20 minutes. Second interview was conducted via adobe connect, and lasted approximately 40 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Western Governors University in December 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter through Linkedin requesting to speak with me about the position. I scheduled a time to speak with the recruiter the next day. She discussed the position and duties. The interview was very basic. Asked questions about skills that apply to this position, background,.all pretty standard interview questions. The recruiter indicated that I would be a good candidate and asked that I complete the application for the position on the WGU site. Two days later I received a call back from the recruiter letting me know that I had been recommended for a second interview and to expect an email shortly. Later that afternoon, I received an email for the second interview with the hiring manager. This was an Adobe session, so instructions were provided for logging in and checking your web cam. This second interview was again very basic, I believe I asked more questions than the interviewer did. This person asked questions like tell me about your experience and background and how they fit this position.
    Second interview again was a very pleasant experience. We discussed the company culture and the importance of supporting student success. We discussed a potential start date if I were chosen and I was told I would get a follow up if selected. This manager did explain that there could be a third interview, but she was not sure -- but I would definitely get a follow-up within the week. This second interview would turn out to be my final interview.Within a week, I received an email stating that I was being offered the job and to provide a time convenient to discuss the details.

    This was another manager. This person congratulated me for being accepted officially offered me the job. Discussed all the benefits and gave me the salary. There was no negotiation necessary as the salary offered was exactly what I wanted and expected based on my research of the company.

    All in all excellent experience. Everyone in the process were more than supportive in answering any and all questions I had. This company really knows what they want and how to get it. I personally have never had a better interview experience and I have been working for the past 20+ years.

    The hiring process was very easy and straightforward. I was told by the hiring manager what each step would be, what to expect and when. I received an official offer letter, background check information, travel arrangement information, etc. All within days of the offer.

    Outstanding experience !

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions." Give examples of helping others overcome obstacles?" Explain a Positive and Negative outcome of this task.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation needed. I actually used the Glassdoor reviews to gauge the salary. The recruiter discussed salary range with me. When I received the offer call, I was offered the top of the range without having to negotiate for it.

    Interview

    Phone interview was concise and informative. Set up for in person interview was effective and information given was helpful. In person interview seemed to go off very well...however interviewer was moving to new position...so follow up was complicated.

    Interview

    Questionable practices -- required date of high school graduation as well as college graduation to complete the online application. Received immediate "thanks but no thanks" although I had over 5 years' online teaching experience. I believe I experienced age discrimination, as I am over 40.

    Interview Questions

    • I was very surprised to have "date of graduation" and "years of total work experience" as required questions on the online interview. Potential age discrimination.   1 Answer
