    Interview

    First I received a call from HR, which was a prescreening. At the end of the call I was told that my info would be forwarded to the hiring manager and I would receive a call within a couple of days. I received that call, which was a phone interview. Then I was asked to do an interview at the location. I have interviewed and now I'm waiting on the next steps...

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Strayer University.

    Interview

    At the beginning, you have a max of 10 minutes to do an introduction. After that, I had to teach a 15-20 minute lesson to a 4 person interview panel. After teaching the lesson, I was asked some of the typical interview questions. It has been about a month since my interview and still haven't heard anything.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Strayer University (Newport News, VA).

    Interview

    I was called the very next day...possibly the same day that I applied. I was scheduled for an interview the next day and interviewed with two different people. Then, I asked back and was interviewed by two people. I do not remember having a phone interview. I do remember them using a targeted interview style and asking me questions that required multi-step answers. I know I had to back (in my mind) and making sure that I was answered the questions accurately. They did not mind if I asked them to repeat themselves. We even had a casual conversation after the interview (on the 1st interview). The second interviewers were a little more straightforward,

    Interview

    Odd. Very misleading. For whatever reason, the hiring manager elected to waste my time by showing me the gym. Why these people do this, I have no idea....stupid. Unprofessional recruiter..NO FOLLOW-UP, IGNORES EMAILS. Glad I dodged this bullet.

    Interview

    The recruiter called and I received a quick response from the Campus Director with a phone interview. The phone interview was unorthodox, yet exciting. The traditional, "what are your strengths and weaknesses were not asked." The following day was face to face with Campus Director and Dean.
