    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    They didn't tell us it was going to be a group interview, which was a little weird, but whatever. Also, one of the people I interviewed with was D/deaf and the interviewers were not expecting that, but they accommodated her as best they could and made sure she was included with the rest of the group.

    Assistant Editor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    As with most academic institution, the time between submitting my resume and securing an interview took more than 3 months. I met initially with HR before meeting with the Editorial Director. Both were warm and inquisitive, and relatively laid back given AIC's prestigious reputation. Though they chose another candidate, I walked away from the experience feeling gratified by the care and attention spent while speaking with both managers. This was especially important while taking the post-interview editorial test. The ED was very clear and made himself available if I needed further guidance.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    While it took a few weeks to hear back from my initial application, the process was relatively smooth and easy. The department I interviewed for seemed to be more interested in who I was as a person rather than my resume to a certain extent. Also, the interview was very informal but maybe that was because I was interviewing for an intern position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about my academic background and current interests/activities in art.
      They also seemed very concerned about what I intended to do after the internship in that there would be an end date and that I would find my time there beneficial to me in the long run.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online did a phone screening about a week later. Was asked to set up an in person interview but never received any confirmation. When the time came and passed for the interview I received a call saying there was miscommunication. We set up another interview and the hr personal noted that if I didn't receive confirmation to give her a call. Never received confirmation after two days so I gave her a call to which she replied "Oh no I hadn't sent it yet but you're confirmed. I'll send it this afternoon." Never received the confirmation and ended up accepting another job while all this was going on. This was not the first time I had an interview experience like this with the School of the Art Institute. I was very excited about the potential for working at the School of the Art Institute but having gone through this twice I don't believe I'll be trying again. HR needs improving.
