    Instructional Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone screening. The person performing the screening told me the interview process would be as follows: finish the rest of the phone screenings; conduct phone interviews for the best candidates from the phone screenings; invite the strongest phone interview contenders onto campus for the first round of interviews; then have a second round of interviews based on the first round of on campus interviews; and finally provide an offer. Apparently, I did so well during the screening, I was asked to come in for an interview. I was flattered. However, it snowed the day before my interview. The University had a 2 hour delayed opening. I was in constant email contact with one of the two interviewers, letting her know I was going to be there when the university opened if it didn't disrupt the interviewers schedule. She assured me everything was fine, and to be at the university when it opened. When I arrived at the interview, I was greeted by the phone screener and the second interviewer. She told me that the other interviewer could not make it because the public schools were closed and he needed to stay home and take care of his child. She and I continued the interview, with most of the same questions she asked on the phone being asked again face-to-face. The only other different interview question asked is given below. Whether I answered it properly or not (to her subjective liking) is another question. I'm assuming not, since she told me she'd call me "In a couple of days," to reschedule the interview to include the other interviewer, but she never did. She never even called to say the position was given to someone else. I called after 2 weeks wondering what happened (as I am from academia. This is the first time applying for staff positions. As a professor, I always received an email, phone call, letter, something that told me what was next). That's when she told me they offered the job to someone else, and if that person doesn't accept, then she'll contact me. Pretty rude in my book.

    That was A phone interview which took about 15 minutes.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I had one interview after submitting a short statement of intent. The interview was short and to the point, and I was offered a position the next day. The interview focused on the technical requirements of the position, the ability to create and maintain my own hours, and the importance of the job for the Church at large, as well as in the community.
