Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
IT Technician Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Columbus State Community College.
Interview Details – The interview was for a Federal Work-Study Program job, working at the IT Help Desk. After applying for the job via the college's web site, I was contacted within a few days by a manager. I was able to set up an interview within the week. The interview was extremely informal, and I felt like I only needed to show a minimal amount of comfort with computers to get the job. I was offered the position at the end of the interview, and there was no negotiation of pay because of the Work-Study nature of the job.
Interview Question – There really weren't any difficult questions, and I really feel like anyone who can use computers comfortably would be qualified for the job. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
Adjunct Faculty Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Columbus State Community College in November 2009.
Interview Details – I think they were just checking to see if I had a pulse. I was asked nothing about my experience or philosophy on teaching. Remarkable.
Negotiation Details – Unable to negotiate anything
IT A/V Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Columbus State Community College in January 2010.
Interview Details – Filled out all information so they could be a background and reference check. Then went in for a one on one interview and was asked questions about computer/A/V knowledge and background. Am still waiting for a response, which I understand is slow. It seems HR is more the problem than whomever you are interviewing with.
