    I worked at City Colleges of Chicago full-time (more than 8 years)


    CCC is going through a transition that is well-intentioned, but sometimes bumpy in execution. If you have the patience and dedication, there is a lot of opportunity for professional growth throughout the seven college system and District Office.


    CCC is very hierarchical, and everyone is reluctant to tell the truth about things that aren't working because some senior administrators can be erratic and abusive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you make everything about one number (enrollment or graduation depending on time of year), everyone will lie, cheat, and steal to reach that number. Seek more contextualized metrics and recognize gradual progress for more meaningful improvement.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't recall any truly difficult questions I think the interview was straight to the point and asked valid and relevant questions. If you are a person that answers things truthfully and are qualified for the job it should not be a problem prepare the same as any interview.   Answer Question
