    Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Education Affiliates (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    1 phone interview, 1 platform interview
    The phone interview was typical, qualifications, experience, etc.
    The platform is key. You teach a class for 10 to 15 minutes in your subject area. They wanted to see if you could manage a classroom so a couple of the "reviewers" let their cell phone go off, disrupted, were late, etc. Put your name on the board, have a prepared ppt and know it inside and out. Be prepared for questions, ask for them!
    If you are offered the job ask for more money because these people will low-ball you and you will never get a raise unless you bug the crap out of them. Expect to bring your own materials, get your own contacts with the textbook publishers because most of the PDs are too lazy to help you. Don't get me wrong, there are some really awesome program directors but the DOEs cannot be trusted and I would keep information about yourself to yourself. This place has a bunch of backstabbers and I have seen instructors set up other instructors because they were afraid of them. Do not make friends there, be polite, professional and do the job. Turnover is awful in most departments. Anyone who has been there a while is an a$$ kisser and you should be nice and polite and do your thing, and go home.

    Negotiation

    Low-ball offer, said they couldn't afford more. The did though... good thing, no raises unless you ask and ask and ask. Reviewers have no choice but to think of something to put on there to downgrade you, even if it is something like took 11 minutes instead of 10 minute break.

    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Education Affiliates (Columbia, SC) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Nothing to stress over. They mostly hire their friends and family. If you get an interview it will usually be for a position or hours nobody else wants to work. While the interview was formal, the questions were very informal. The interviewer really had no idea or training on how to conduct an interview so it was all over the place. I was read the job description and asked if this is something I wanted to do.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Education Affiliates (Baltimore, MD) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There are 4 parts. Group interview, 2 phone interviews, 1 observation interview. Takes about 1 week to 2 weeks to get hirefm hardest part is group. Do not be late to the group interview. Understand that the JOB IS BORING! They ask can you stand to do the same thing over and over everyday? People always say yes and get there and can't handle it and leave or her fired because instead of doing the BORING JOB, they are on the internet surfing. Please think about this before applying.
