    Instructor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Both interviews were conducted via Skype. The first round was pleasant with a committee of Professors and Instructors. They asked insightful questions, and the chair of the interview committee offered answers to all of my questions inside and out of the interview.

    The second interview was with the chair of the department. It was also via Skype. His understanding of the position was completely different than the previous committee. Where the previous committee seemed interested in my film background, he mentioned that they had too many film instructors and wanted somebody with multiple disciplines, "Graphic Design", "Video Game Design", and "Animation". This was not listed in the job notice, if it was, I wouldn't have applied. I think it is also a lot to ask of an Instructor to have specializations in multiple disciplines for a $40,000/year position.

    I didn't get the job, and to this day nobody has officially notified me. I found this out when I happened to meet an instructor at a networking event. He also said that the Chair of the Department misinformed me in my interview and that there was actually a need for film instructors there. It's a red flag if the chair doesn't even know what the department needs and what faculty they have... I emailed to follow up at reasonable intervals, all with no response. I think the least they could do is notify me that they filled the position.

    Overall, it was a very unpleasant experience, and if you intend to apply there, be prepared to be mistreated during the interview process.

    Greeter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The hiring process is pretty straight forward. I simply walked in to inquire about open positions and was brought into the office of one of the assistant directors. They gave me a run down of the position and provided me an application.

    The interview was predominantly comprised of basic interview questions regarding my resume followed by asking me to respond to "pretend" situations.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, they basically told me what I would be getting paid.

    Assistant Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The process was a bit lengthy, consisting of a 30 minute phone interview by a committee, then a face-to-face interview to another committee, where I was asked to make a presentation on a designated topic. I was also asked to write an essay on a topic provided by the chair of the interview committee. The third interview consisted of a larger committee than the first two (about 8-10 people), followed by a final interview with the director. Very exhausting and a bit daunting.
