    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at College of Charleston (Charleston, SC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    There were two interviews, an initial and final interview. The specifications seemed cut and dry but it took almost a month before I was offered the position. I sat before a "panel" of sorts, which consisted of the 3 supervisors. They asked a series of questions that applied to the position and their expectations. It turns out they had no real idea of their expectations or abilities to efficiently supervise the position as it had not been in the past.
