    Working at the HCT was a roller coaster in both good and bad ways, and I really enjoyed working there."

    I worked at HCT

    Pros

    Many people at the institution are committed to student success, and the students themselves are amazing. It was a privilege to associate with them and to be part of their education.

    Cons

    Policy and personnel changed more than most of us enjoyed. Job security seemed non-existent, even among the most excellent faculty and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't really advise the top managers. The vast majority of employees are from outside the UAE, and as an outsider myself, I can't judge their actions. They know what is best for their own people, and they have a huge responsibility to the younger generation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at HCT in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was done using Skype. I interviewed with two department heads simultaneously. One department head played 'mean interviewer' and one played 'nice interviewer'. I found out that other faculty had had the same experience.
