    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at McCann School of Business (Hazleton, PA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was told about the school and the somewhat recent changes in ownership as well as how it differs from a community college or a university. The interviewer did not at any point try to be intimidating and brought up salary without me asking. They explained the personality test, which is mandatory. I got the impression that they were very happy to meet with me and was given a tour of the campus. Everyone seemed friendly and genuinely interested in what they did.

    Adjunct Instructor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at McCann School of Business (Hazle Township, PA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I saw a local newspaper ad (online) seeking adjunct instructors, some requiring a Master's degree. I located the email address of the Dean of Education and forwarded my resume. After 11 days, I received a call for an interview, which was set up for 8 days later. The Dean was very polite and helpful. The Dean showed me pretty much the entire building and took the time to explain what was expected of me, especially being new. The Dean gave me plenty of information to read over, including an application, descriptions of the courses in my area, and a form where I could specify only those courses I was interested in teaching along with my availability. The following day, the Dean emailed me a link to complete a Profile XT pre-employment assessment test, which I did complete. However, since I was unsure of my availability for the upcoming quarter, I delayed sending in my application. More than three weeks later, though, I submitted my application, including references, background check authorization, and a list of courses I would be willing to teach along with my availability. The Dean initially responded and said that all the courses were filled for the quarter, but emailed me back 8 days later to say that there were openings. The next day, I emailed the Dean copies of my transcripts, and requested my official ones sent to the School. Later that day, I was offered a position as an adjunct instructor. I was asked to teach two courses and given the dates to attend two orientation sessions.

    Hiring was done in a snap; one phone call & one in - person interview was all it took. They spoke to me & checked my credentials & that was it. All I had to do was agree to work at poverty level, with the promise of "better pay" once I'd shown what I was worth.

    There was no negotiating. We simply agreed t ore-evaluate after two semesters. I got a small increase.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McCann School of Business in March 2012.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter, took an online skills test, had a Skype interview with the recruiter, took an online personality test, then had to do an interview via webcam that was pre-recorded, then the next step would be a face to face interview with a three members of administration at the campus. I was told this face to face could take 2-3 hours. When the recruiter told me this I decided to bow out of the interview process as I had already used so much of my time on just this one position. If the interview process was this strenuous and micro-managed, I couldn't imagine what the working conditions would be like so I moved on.
