Colorado College Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Colorado College.
Interview Details – Lots of committee based hiring. People from divisions that have nothing to do with your job will be in the room. Generally there is a phone interview and then a sit down interview in front of the hiring committee where each committee member will ask a few questions. Try to be personable and get the room to laugh with you. Chances are, few of them will be professional interviewers or managers, so you may be able to work this to your advantage. The selection process will probably be long, 2 weeks or more.
- Women's and minority concerns will be addressed, and that is probably the toughest one. Be prepared, as there is usually someone from women's concerns on the committee. Most people do not have an answer because they don't want to sound as though they have a problem with diverse groups of people. It's tough to talk about in an interview because if you are not a minority or a woman, you feel like you're walking through a minefield. View Answer
- Generally Colorado College committees will ask about how you would change things or what you would do with x or y at the College. This is a near impossible question for anyone outside since they do not know what needs improving at the College, and they don't know the underlying politics of this question. View Answer
