    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago in November 2012.

    Interview

    One phone interview. One in-person interview with the hiring manager and team. And a second interview with the department head. Very casual. Most of the team was out and that didn't seem to affect the decision.

    Neutral Experience
    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

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago (Chicago, IL) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I was sat down in an office and my experience was questioned by multiple people who were managers. They were fairly nice and it seemed like they'd already decided they were going to hire me before the interview even started. The application had all the relevant questions, the interview was mostly to guage my personality and character to make sure I was a fit as they already knew my skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Columbia College Chicago (Chicago, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The school has made the shift to hiring only individuals with a Master's Degree or better. Their preference is for experience, whether through local industry opportunities or from the national level. Typically, you must meet with a department leader, then a committee, then another individual higher up, and possibly make a presentation to a class and yet another committee.

    Interview Questions

    • This can depend upon who is on your committee, but the most difficult typically has to do with dealing with students who can be extremely difficult for any number and variety of personal reasons.   Answer Question
