    Pros

    Understanding that you are still a student and will make mistakes. Also, there are so many connections through the faculty that will aid you with jobs, opportunities, and events.

    Cons

    There is always a ceiling of progression for students. We can only grow so much before having to find a new job in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there are plenty of opportunities for faculty positions.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Johnson & Wales University.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their portal, a few weeks later received an email about an initial screening call, did the screening call with 2 people - they asked good questions about my current work experience and told me more about the position. A day or two later got a call for an in person interview scheduled for a week or so out. It was a great interview experience, very professional everyone was very kind they gave good directions to the building etc. At the end of the interview I was told they were interviewing the first round of candidates and would let me know by the end of next week if I was going to come in for another interview, an online test, and a written test. That was almost a month and a half ago, never heard anything and the job posting is still up. Marketing admissions can be busy in April, their needs may have changed, who knows what happened. That's the way these things go sometimes.

    Interview Questions
    • Wanted to hear about specific projects, and also about a time I had pitched a project that was rejected and what I learned from it etc.   Answer Question

Things are a little "upside-down" at Johnson & Wales University, and that's just the way they like it. The private, not-for-profit, accredited institution provides what it calls an upside-down curriculum, allowing students to take courses in their major during the first year, so they learn right away if their career choice is right for them. At the end of two years of study, students earn an associate's degree and the opportunity to go on to earn a bachelor's degree. Founded in 1914, the school enrolls more than 16,000 students on four campuses in Colorado, Florida, North... More
