    Nursing Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fortis College (Columbus, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me. I had numerous interviews. My first interview was with a small panel that included mostly directors and assistant directors. I was asked to complete a drug screen and background check at the completion. I was called several days later and asked to return to complete a 20 minute teaching presentation. I presented in front of approximately 10 faculty and 20 nursing students. Several days later, I received another call that they were very impressed by my teaching presentation and asked me to do a skills demo. I came back for a third time and "taught" IV insertion and Foley insertion. Again, I was told they were very impressed and asked me (again) to complete a background check and drug screen. I was told I had already completed them and they were both green lighted for hiring. The assistant dean told the dean was out of office but I should hear back in several days with a formal job offer. I never heard from them again and all attempts to call and e-mail have been ignored. It's been approximately 2 months since my final interview.

    Nursing Instructor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fortis College (Columbia, SC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was hired "on the fly" by an interim dean after a big lay-off partially due to small class sizes and low passing rates on specialty exams. The interview was short, to-the-point, and did not include many of the standard discipline-oriented questions. My salary request was met, therefore I was asked to teach 3 courses per quarter and the next quarter started one week after the interview. Orientation was per intranet and very little guidance was provided. There was no peer interview.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fortis College (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Fortis, and almost immediately received a phone call from the Regional Director of Admissions, who happened to be visiting the local college. The job posting said "Bachelor degree preferred." I let him know that I did not have a degree, and he let me know that my experience trumped a degree, and scheduled me for a F2F the next morning. I arrived to my appointment five minutes early, but the office I was to go to was locked. After waiting by the door for a few minutes, an instructor showed up and was able to let me in the office. The receptionist finally came out from a back office, and asked me what I was there for. After telling her I was there to interview, the Campus President came out, and again confirmed why I was there, and then disappeared into the back office. Finally, about 10 minutes after my scheduled interview, the CP came back out and told me that the person I was to interview with wouldn't be there that morning, but he would meet with me. He told me, as well, that experience trumped education, however, throughout our conversation, he kept insulting me by mentioning the fact that I was "uneducated." After we spoke for roughly 15 minutes, he ended the interview, and said that he had a meeting to go to, but that the Director of Admissions would be calling me to schedule another appointment. After not hearing from the DOA, I emailed the CP to inquire about the status of my next interview. He replied that the DOA had another "route" in mind, and that I would not be scheduled for another interview. The entire time I was at my original appointment, and after receiving the email from the CP, I feel like they never had any intention of seriously considering me for the position, and that my trip to their location was a complete waste of my time, and gas. The whole thing was handled very unprofessionally.

    Interview Questions

    • Why didn't you graduate from college? (He seemed to dwell on the fact that I didn't have a degree. I don't know why I was scheduled for an interview, if having a degree was so important to the management).   Answer Question

    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westerville, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fortis College (Westerville, OH) in July 2018.

    Interview

    At first my experience seemed promising; I was contacted via Indeed email by an individual representing the college. She/he emailed after looking at my resume and was very interested to meet. We briefly emailed back and forth and settled on later that week. Once the day came, I arrived at the school and waited to meet w/ a panel of individuals. The interview went VERY well, which was followed by a campus tour. At the conclusion of the interview & tour (roughly 1.5 hours), I was told they had a few more interviews and I would hear from them in a week.

    A week later, I received a call from one of the people that was in the interview...one of the employees who wasn't there in the panel interview wanted to meet with me. We met later that week! The interview went so well, I thought I'd be offered the position on the spot. I was escorted back to the main office where I had my background check done and they gave me directions for where to go to do my drug test. SUCCESS....or so I thought!

    Before leaving, again I'm told it would be a week so I waited. After a week, I emailed to follow-up and make sure they had everything they needed as I also had to do an online assessment. With my application file complete, I wait and wait to hear about their decision. NO response. So I call and leave a voice message, again no response. I email my contact who I had been talking with through this whole process and basically say since they had not contacted me I assumed they went with other candidates and wished them well...only to receive a response, she/he was soo swamped and they had still not made a decision but they would by the end of week.

    I'm sure I don't have to tell you, I still haven't heard from them. Such a waste of my time and their money. So unprofessional on so many levels. Just respond with a "No" I'm a big girl I can handle it.
