    Instructor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Auburn University (Auburn, AL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Two in person interviews. I had previously been working as a graduate student in the department, and I was offered to apply for the position. The interview process was fairly short compared to other interviews I've had, mainly because I was already very familiar with the interviewer.

    The second interview was much longer and involved a brief teaching demonstration. Overall it was a fairly easy interview, as I had previous experience in the subject to be taught.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Auburn University.

    Interview

    Online application process requiring resume, references and additional questions. Was selected for an interview - - a roundtable of 6, with somewhat disjointed and unrelated questions that did not provide for a good flow or opportunity to drill deeper - - just answer the question, then on to the next unrelated question. Was there almost 2 hours so hoped for the best. Followed up with a personal email to all on the committee within 2 business days - no response from even one person. Followed up again 2 weeks later and again no response, no "we enjoyed meeting you as well" or update on where things were in the process. I finally learned 4-5 weeks after interview on the job site that I was not chosen when the status of the job went from "interviews in process" to "candidate selected". I am a passionate Auburn University grad, and must say I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism given to candidates who put many hours into this rigorous employment process time and time again. This has been going on for years, and the reputation for this has been long standing. Many colleagues have sworn they will never apply with Auburn again. Very disappointing Auburn.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Auburn University (Auburn University, AL).

    Interview

    The first phase was a brief phone interview after they reviewed and approved my application. They mostly asked about why I love Auburn and other general questions. The second stage was an in-person interview with three interviewers. It lasted no more than ten minutes and was somewhat laid back. They were mostly interested in how well you can communicate professionally to prospective students and want to make sure you will represent Auburn well. Only apply for this job if you truly love Auburn and want to give back!

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Auburn University.

    Interview

    It was very brief and included a tour of the facility where I would be working. The only questions asked were about my schedule, how long I would be able to work, when I planned to graduate and when I would be able to start. It was very much entry level and they helped to train me after I was employed.
