    I worked at Academy of Art University


    Doesn't require much effort


    Management has to scramble to implement random and fickle changes made by the President and there is no cohesion or love for staff. Everyone who works there looks miserable for good reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on actual education and student/staff resources rather than pure profit.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Academy of Art University.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the Recruiter via phone. We scheduled a phone interview which went well and then an in person interview. The Recruiter sounded super nice over the phone and said that if this position wasn't a fit- she would find something that might be a better fit, so it seemed hopeful.
    I came into the office and a peculiar thing: the candidates that were interviewing for this position were sitting waiting for their interview time, seems they schedule it similar to a casting call.
    Everything went well, but towards the middle of the interview her questions felt like she was demeaning and asking why I am even applying for this position. I didn't feel like this was relative to my interview. I worked for a similar educational for type of environment and the recruiting process is the opposite. I decided that whether or not I was going to get the position I would definitely pass, the Recruiter was not professional, and this would parallel the organization. The Recruiter did not even follow up to let me know the results either.
