Student Affairs Interview

Student Affairs

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Harrison College.

Interview Details – Applied online and got a call about a week later for an on-the-spot phone interview. A few days after the phone interview I got a call to schedule a face-to-face interview. Met with the Hiring Supervisor, someone else in the same position, and the Campus President. Questions were mostly about my experience and how would I handle certain situations with students and faculty. Recieved an offer at the end of the week.

Interview Question – How would you approach a faculty member whose student was having issues with them?   Answer Question

Program Coordinator Interview

Program Coordinator
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Harrison College in January 2010.

Interview Details – The process takes forever. You have individual, group, and more individual interviews. All sorts of weird hypothetical questions are asked. I have been through many interviews, and this was the strangest. There were people involved in the process who had no relationship to the position for which I was interviewing. I had no idea how I did.

Interview Question – If you were an ice cream cone, tell me how you would spend your day?   Answer Question

Director of Instructional Design and Development Interview

Director of Instructional Design and Development

I applied online and interviewed at Harrison College.

Interview Details – Interview process involved a short phone screening, followed by a face-to-face interview with seven people. Most were in person, but there were two participating via phone. The individuals included the incumbent job holder, a direct report, and leaders form other areas with which the position interacted. Oddly, the hiring manager did not participate in the interview. I was asked a very wide range of questions depending on the perspective of the person asking the question. Most of the focus was on my current job and some of the changes that I had implemented in that position. This past experience was very relevant to the job I was interviewing for. The interview wasn't to terribly challenging because I just had to talk a lot about my past work and describe some of the details on how I did what I did and what drove my decision making. The position I was interviewing for also involved people management responsibilities, so I was also asked questions about my people management style and practices. They were clearly concerned with getting someone who would manage people in a manner consistent with the organization's values.

After the face-to-face interview there was about a month where things didn't move forward. Harrison expressed interest in moving forward, but it didn't happen quickly. Eventually, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and a second phone interview with his manager. The second interview was conducted on a Saturday morning to fit it into the Provost's schedule. The hiring manager called me immediately after that interview and made an offer via phone.

Interview Question – I didn't really find any of the questions very difficult, but the two most detailed ones were about my experience implementing operational systems in my current position and a question about my management style. In both cases, I was asked for specific details and examples that showed how I approached the situations. We spent a lot of time talking about both of these topics and I was asked a number of clarifying questions from different members of the interview panel. Each had their own perspective that they wanted to explore. I didn't really find the questions difficult, because I just had to talk about my experiences. For others interviewing, you should be prepared to talk about past work in detail, not just at a surface level. Also be prepared for behavioral interview questions where they ask you to give an example of a time when...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – My current salary was well outside the range for this position, and they did make an offer that was competitive with where I was. This meant that there was no room for salary negotiation, but they did offer me some perks such as a paid cell phone, additional vacation time, and a small personal development stipend.

Manager Interview

Manager
Fort Wayne, IN

I applied online - interviewed at Harrison College in October 2012.

Interview Details – Hiring manageer emailed me a VERY brief email telling me a time and date to be there to interview 3 months after I submitted an application. When I said I could not make that date I was told to check back for other opportunities online. Very unprofessional and unrealistic. Offered to do a phone interview since I am out of town on business and was told thanks anyways.

Interview Question – N/A since they were so unflexable. If I was qualified enough to offer an initial interview you should work to make one happen.   View Answer

The day of the interview, they give you a brief packet explaining about the founding of the school, blah, blah and a description of the position. In a nutshell, you would be working long hours and it is mainly on sales
