    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was casual and low-key. The Dean of Students was friendly and easy to interact with. She was communicative, but the waiting process was a little drawn out and longer than expected, leading to anxiety.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I went through a staffing agency, they placed me and I got an interview that week. Two hours after my interview they gave my staffing agency an offer who told me if I would like I could start in two weeks. Overall it was a very simple hiring process. Simpler if you go direct through Post's HR and not a staffing agency.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but that is because I went through a staffing agency so the power was in their hands, not sure how direct recruits are treated in this regard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted via email regarding unexpected opening - wanted to know my availability. I was. Both interviewers were the "management team" I would be working for. Lots of talk about we don't spoonfeed our kids but they need lots of special attention. They were both friendly enough and asked on point questions related to teaching style, integration within their system.

    Advice: Just be yourself

    Interview Questions

    • How would you adjust your teaching to our students who don't read the books?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation - it is presented as this is what we offered. Later in conversations with other adjuncts I learned someone with a masters was being paid same as I with a PhD.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process for me was very laid back. I was contacted just a few days after submitting my application. I spoke with the HR rep for a few weeks via phone before I could make it to campus. Once I arrived, I interviewed with one of the Assistant Directors. We talked about hobbies, my career goals, and a little bit about the culture of school. My second interview was a bit more formal with some harder work-related questions. From the moment I walked in each time, I saw smiles on faces and everyone said hello. It seemed like a buzzing environment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer is competitive especially in this economy. Most people working in admissions are young and just starting a career, so the benefits and salary are often worth it for the experience.
