    Instructional Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Virginia College in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Virginia College.

    Interview Details

    1) Apply online

    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.)

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Virginia College in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was normal until after when I gave a finance presentation (my specialty) one of the two people who were present, was invited to attend as a staff member (the college site compliance person, among other responsibilities he has as I came to understand later), walked out whispering and chuckling..couldn't tell why he couldn't act professionally for few minutes). Later on during the semester he harassed me over an overseas transcripts from 30 years ago which were permanently out of reach of course.
