    Professor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Los Rios Community College District.

    Interview Details

    My hiring process included two interviews- one with a committee of 12 and one with the college president and two senior administrators. The committee interview consisted of approximately 12 interview questions, followed by a teaching demonstration. Each member of the committee asked a question. I could tell it was quite important that I answer every question in a complete and concise manner. The interview with the college administration was a bit more challenging. The questions were difficult and aimed at what I assume they must have viewed as my shortcomings from the first interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were completely expected. I think the President asked the most difficult questions. I can't recall the specific questions but the subject circled around a theme of how would I interact with other faculty.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating. The salary was based on years of experience and education units only.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Los Rios Community College District in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Probably the most convoluted interview I've ever been on. They first put me in a room by myself and gave me a piece of scratch paper and a list of the questions they were going to ask me in person. Then they took me to the interview room where I was given strict rules as to what I was allowed to say and what they were allowed to say. Then each of the people around the room asked me a question off of the sheet and then immediately looked down at their piece of paper to scribble notes. There was no personality from any of them. I might as well have just stayed in the private room and talked to myself.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Los Rios Community College District in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to write an essay using a computer on how I would tutor a student. I was then asked to review a real essay subitted by a student for about 15 minutes. The Writing Coordinator and her Instructional Assistant then interviewed me by doing some role playing. The Writing Coordinator was the student, while I went through the process of pretending to tutor her on her essay. The IA just took notes. I assumed they did confer afterwards about how I did. I was hired the next day by a phone call. When I spoke to the IA later when I started working at the Writing Center, I asked him if I was ready to tutor since I had not done that many observations of other experienced tutors. He said that I had done so well in the interview that he thought I was ready.
