    I worked at University of Northern Iowa

    Pros

    As a substitute teacher in my children's school, I saw them frequently. I knew their friends and teachers on a personal level. I taught for the teacher in his/her absence, allowing him/her to move forward not backward! I worked with kind, compassionate teachers and staff.

    Cons

    I often knew ahead of time when I would be substitute teaching, but sometimes I didn't know until very early that morning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Had great management so I have no advice for them!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Northern Iowa in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I found out about job through a coworker who knew that this person was retiring. I contacted the hiring manager by phone and arranged a in-person interview the next day. I interviewed with 2 people (hiring manager and their assistant). Interview lasted 1 hr. Questions were about my current impressions of the department and what I would change if given a chance. After a couple days I was notified that I would meet with two more people. On that day a job offer was extended.
