    Instructional Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Virginia College (Birmingham, AL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Unprofessional, interviewer did not show up for the first interview; second interview was okay, but nothing but a waste of time; called for a third interview which I declined; Academic dean wanted to met me at a deli as if it was a date, stating that she "want to get to know" me. Very strange. I should have gone and had a friend in the deli taping the whole thing.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a series of questions pertaining to the job but wanted me to answer incorrectly.   1 Answer

    Very intense interview with specific questions on timeliness. Performed in a professional manner. Friendly and professional greeting followed by a series of questions. Once the onboarding process began and the paperwork was complete I was made to feel right at home.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Virginia College.

    Interview

    1) Apply online
    2) Phone interview with 3rd party
    3) Interview on site with department management
    4) Background Check
    5) Offer Letter through e-mail

    (For me specifically, Step 2 was scheduled but never happened, so I stopped by the office to introduce myself and inform the hiring manager that I never received a call. I had an impromptu interview with her as well as a tour of the facility, then later has the phone interview with the 3rd party. After passing the phone interview an on-site interview was scheduled where I spoke with the hiring manager and her supervisor.)

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Virginia College.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day to come in and do a "practice teach" later on that week. I did my presentation on my certifications in front of the lead instructor, program director, and another person from a different department. Next, I did an insight phone interview where they asked situational questions and guaged my willingness to help students that are falling behind and generally working with difficult students while still teaching other students who are on track. The next time I came in, I was expecting to watch the instructor teach to get a feel for the environment and expectations however, the syllabus had my name on it and that class was my class. The lead instructor did teach my first two classes and help me get the resources I needed to get started. I think it went so fast because I am a previous employee from a different department.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle teaching students from varing skillsets such as where some students work in the field and others do not know how to turn on a computer?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation because I never got a "sit-down," or a formal offer letter. I was put in the classroom immediately.
