    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Community College (Elkhorn, NE) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Came in, sat down, went over my experience and past curriculum. I had a pretty good relationship with the head of the department going in so it was mainly a formality followed by more formalities, background checks, etc.

    College Retention Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Metropolitan Community College (Kansas City, MO) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Set interview over phone. Had to prepare a presentation about MCC, benefits of community college, and an on-campus recruiting event. Very little detail to what they wanted in the presentation. Arrived and interviewed in front of a panel of 5 people. They went around the table asking questions, mostly 'what experience do you have in these situations.' Finished with presenting my presentation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Metropolitan Community College (Omaha, NE) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The application, interview, and hiring process took forever. I applied in February, had a phone interview in March, had a panel interview 3 weeks later, and then a month later in April they finally called me to officially offer me the position. It took the hiring manager 2 weeks longer than she said to make me the offer, after she made me aware that they were interested in hiring me.

    Negotiation

    They were unable to negotiate with what I was asking for in pay and benefits. Their hands are tied by the employee union agreement.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Metropolitan Community College (Omaha, NE) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Was relatively painless--standard interview questions (give examples of working in teams; what do you feel is your biggest weakness, etc). Because it's a government job it takes a long time to go from application submission to getting a call for an interview (I had actually forgotten I applied by the time they called) and several weeks after the interview to get the offer and start. Decent place to work, laid back.

    Interview Questions

    • "What would you say is your biggest weakness?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No ability to negotiate if you aren't being hired for a union position. The job is listed as "temporary" only for technical reasons--you can work indefinitely but you're not eligible for a raise or benefits unless you are applying for a union position.
