    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Collin County Community College.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick but the hiring process took over a month. The interview itself was pretty standard. I met with the director over the department that I applied for. I was then told that I'd hear back from them or HR if I was offered the position. I figured I didn't get it since it took over a month for HR To call me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Collin County Community College (McKinney, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online, through the HR website. Received a call some time later to have an interview set up. When I showed up on the day of the interview, I was seen quickly. The interviewer was not especially warm or inviting, although they did make a point of letting me read over the job description (the same one that had been posted online, to which I applied). The interview lasted about 20-30 minutes and was very much interview-style rather than conversational. As a professional who has interviewed candidates in the past, I feel strongly that an interviewer should try to put the candidate at ease in order to gain a better insight into who that person is. Regardless, I was told that a decision would be made within a week, but I never heard from them again. No call, no email, no nothing. Extremely unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Collin County Community College (Frisco, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and had two in persons interview. The director of advising and other advisors enjoyed my answers and both interviews went very well. HR sent me consent to do a background check. I knew I had the job. Then the director of advising called me and stated HR said I need a year of academic affairs experience. Why even have me come in for interviews just to not hire me. I have two degrees and great experience. I was qualified.
