    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    No interview was made due to knowing a professor who needs assistance to supervise an engineering seminar on a weekend. Due to my collaboration with my future supervisor, I later did work on the side during the weekends prior to the year ending and being hired on the spot as a student worker.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    Because I was referred through from a friend working at the College at the time, I did not have an interview at all. I was hired based on my credentials. Once hired I was reviewed the same semester, Summer 2013 and was given feedback. Since then I have been teaching every semester.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    The interview was fine but their HR dept is very slow. Expect to wait months before hearing anything? Questions include topics like team work, balance, organization, etc. Each interview will be conducted by your specific hiring manager so there will be a lot of variance.
