    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago.

    Interview

    No interview process, you just have to get A's in all your core Creative Writing classes and apply. It's pretty easy to get into and the professors are always looking to hire new tutors. (At least, they were when I was there.) As long as you work hard and show your professors that you're a good student and writer, you'll probably get in.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview phase - Generally ask you a lot of questions about your skillset and what you're looking for in a company. I was asked a lot of scenario questions related to students, in an in-person interview easy to talk about, over the phone hard to get a sense of if the person on the other end's relating to your explanation of the question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal. I sat down with the person who would be my direct supervisor and his counterpart. It was really just a discussion of what I've done in my career. Later I was called in to meet with the direct supervisor and his supervisor. Again, the same thing. I was offered the job a few weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't seem very well versed in interviewing techniques and didn't ask any really thought provoking questions in the interview. There were no unexpected questions.   Answer Question

    They offered very little money. I countered back and they met me in the middle.
