I applied in-person. The process took a day – interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.
Manager asked one question. "If someone called in and said that they couldn't log onto the network and told me the computer networking cord was plugged into the back of the printer what do you tell them to do"? My interview lasted all but 10 mins. Not diverse at all.
- I was only asked the one question above, which I gave the correct answer. 1 Answer

I applied through other source. The process took a week – interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in September 2010.
First there was an initial phone screen, that went well, then I went in and interviewed with what was to be my manager and his manager. They were extremely pleasant. The whole interview process was orderly, timely and professional. In a relatively short period I was contacted by phone with a job offer. It was awesome.
- Why I was leaving current job after only six months employment. 1 Answer
It was a phone offer and I wanted to accept the position. Interestingly, I had interviewed months before and was told a salary the same I was making and declined. This time I was offered a bit more (without my prompting) and just accepted it.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in January 2010.
I was taken into a relatively empty room and was left there for a considerable time during which I felt I was being watched. Perhaps that was unfair on my part but I was left there longer than is usual for an interview.
- I was asked if I would be uncomfortable firing perfectly good employees who had been employed for the duration of their temporary timeframe. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in August 2009.
I applied to the Rover Program (an internal temp agency) in the summer of 2009 and never heard back. I applied again the next month with the backing of a current employee and was accepted into the program. At first a few e-mails were traded back and forth. Then, I had an interview in person. This seemed more of a formality- although the interviewer seemed to take it seriously- as they needed more people to cover a certain department. The Art Institute is an inbred place. A VERY large portion of the people there get their jobs because they know someone who works at or is affiliated with the School or Museum.
- What are your weaknesses? Answer Question
I wasn't able to negotiate and there really is no room for any negotiation.
