    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Franklin University (Columbus, OH) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Was satisfied with interview process and speed. Initial interviewer was very nice. Her first question was about my knowledge of the university, and was looking for whether I'd done my research or not. We discussed my background some, the benefits and the university in general. After the interview, I had to take a computer skills test. The second interview was with several members that the position would be supporting. The group had excellent questions, and I was able to engage with them on an intellectual level. There was a third, and final, interview with a final member I would be supporting.

    My advice to other would be to research the university first (which should be a given). Identify current trends in the university's growth/focus and consider how your position might support this vision. Remember, Franklin is not a research institute, and runs more like a business. They are concerned first and foremost with how to reach more students (nationally and internationally).

    Negotiation

    I did not feel there was any space for negotiation. All around, I felt the strong benefits package helped compensate for the lack of negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Franklin University (Columbus, OH) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Not a long interview process. Initial interview is with a Human Resource recruiter. It is close to a 30 minute interview that included personality based questions and questions about experience. In this interview there were some scenario based questions that is specific to the job. So be prepared to know the description of the job inside and out. The second interview will typically be with what would be your reporting manger. Again the questions will circle around personality, experience and scenarios. They also look if you are going to be a good fit with the team. So you will branch off to another interview with some of your counterparts. They will ask you questions on how you would handle certain scenarios and also look to see if you are a good fit with the group.

    Work Study Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Franklin University in July 2009.

    Interview

    I applied online and although my resume had my phone number on it, I received an email four months after applying asking me to call to set up an interview. I was very surprised when I called back and the HR person said she needed my phone number...
    I went to the interview and the HR person interviewing me had a nose ring. That is literally all I remember about the interview. I was staring at her nose ring the WHOLE time wondering if I wanted to work for a company that had such a lack of professionalism to allow a job interviewer to wear a nose ring while interviewing potential candidates.
    I needed a job so I sucked up my distaste for the interviewer's nose piercing and took the job.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Franklin University (Columbus, OH) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I happened to know someone who knows someone. I inquired about the job, interviewed and voila. I guess there aren't that many people willing to teach this particular subject...

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was none. They said, we pay $X per class and that was it. I actually get paid less that the quoted figure. If there are some kind of step raises involved to reach $X per class, it is not communicated at all and you never see a pay stub...
