    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Central Michigan University.

    Interview

    The interview process is not difficult. The main focus is for them to get to know your personality and see if you would fit in with their staff. They will ask a couple situation based questions, but nothing to scary. Good Luck!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very long, about six months from the closing date of the job post. Following the interview with the specific department, the process was much quicker as well the rest of the paperwork. The process is probably very different among the various departments at the university. Mine consisted of three people and the interview involved questions and answers from the panel followed by a written test (of intelligence and character). The entire process took less than two hours.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Very informal and fun. I interviewed with the head designer and we talked about my portfolio. She was very kind and clearly enjoyed her job. It took me a few months to get in because they were full on designers, but once I did I loved it! It's a great place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Got back with me quickly to set up an interview and planned well around my schedule. Questions were very basic and covered my previous similar experience to the job I would be working as well as any other skills I had related to the job. They were very enthusiastic and descriptive about what I would be doing, describing my responsibilities as well as any other types of projects I would need to complete.

    English Language Institute Instructor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It took approximately four weeks from application to interview notification, plus two weeks for interview. In the email, they set one time that I was allotted to interview rather than a range of possible times. Phone interview was a standard academic screening interview. They asked five or six standard questions about teaching English as a Second Language. The program seemed stolid and stagnant; they didn't seem interested in very much beyond standard reading, writing, listening, and speaking classes. The committee seemed somewhat...bored. Then, they notified me that I should hear back from them fairly soon. About 5 weeks later, I followed up, and they replied with a polite, apologetic email that another candidate had been offered the position, thus the secrecy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was incredibly easy. Seeing as it was a seasonal position, they really just want to know if you're willing to actually work. The interview itself is super informal. Typically, the supervisor will meet with you when they have a spare minute and ask you what kind of experience you have working in maintenance. This is mostly to get an idea of where they can put you on the summer staff. Meanwhile, they'll be trying to get an idea of what your personality is like and if you'll be committed to getting to work on time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was somewhat confusing. The school had asked me for additional information because I was one of three candidates chosen for the position. Weeks later the position was on hold because the committee with administrators could not agree on the status of the full-time position. In August, 2010, they called to interview me on the telephone because the position was re-instituted and I was chosen. My perceptions of my fellow colleagues was honorable and respectful, as I was respectful to all. Unfortunately the upper administrators were not considerate for changes for the departments needs and future visions and positive implementations. Senior faculty were not supportive of new faculty and intimidation was their weapon to make several colleagues to either leave their positions in the college or constantly reporting negative comments of unhappiness to upper administrators. Protocols were disregarded unfortunately.
