    Site Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    A hiring manager called me and described the position. I was asked given the position needs whether I felt confident I could do the work. Following, I submitted several pieces of documentation (i.e. teaching certification, clearances, transcripts, etc.). When all was approved, I had online faculty training. It was mostly open forum discussion questions online. You must get a passing score to proceed. Later, I was given a selection of school sites to choose to supervise. You are able to decline assignments for any reason. Currently, I have 3 students. The workload is equivalent to the pay. I receive $550 for observing a student teacher four times a semester. I can choose when I visit. Following, I submit my evaluation of the student through an online management system.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University in August 2017.

    Interview

    Filled out an online application for the position within a week I received an email requesting a phone interview to be scheduled for the next day. The interview was easy with most of the questions asking you to describe your positions listed on the resume. The recruiter also asked what was the pay for each position. In the end, I didn't move on to the next stage of the interview process, which was weird because I do the exact same thing at my current job. The school would have been new to the area and it would have made sense for them to move forward with the person from the major competitor in the area who did the duties they were asking for. I received a standard rejection letter with no explanation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was called for a preliminary interview and I had to call back several times in order to get back in touch with the person who called me. When I did, she asked me a few questions which I will indicate in the questions column and then told me that I would have an in-person interview but they had to decide if I would fly to Phoenix or if they would come and interview me in my location. I waited a few days, hadn't heard anything and called back. She made a point to say that she "can't remember all the people she talks to in a day" and that "it was out of her hands". It was very unprofessional and rude. She said the hiring department had my resume and that I should reapply to be considered.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked why I want to work for GCU, why I felt like I would be a great Admissions Representative, and the usual.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (San Jose, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that went really well. Then had to do a writing sample. Had 24 hours to do this, just answer sample emails. Then I was called to set up a time to meet with the Program Manager. Was told it was casual and to meet at a coffee shop. I thought I did really well and had a good connection. Boy, was I wrong! The next day all I got was a generalized "no reply" message from their HR Department saying that basically liked someone else and that was the end of that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview is typical, where they ask you t tell them stories about past work experiences and detail scenarios where you solved problems. May the best liar get the job. The initial hiring manager talks to you and then ambushes by sending you to other hiring managers who ask you the same exact questions you were already asked. They fail to tell you that this is just a mere sales position, with quotas that must be hit while you remain expendable. The atmosphere in the building looks miserable. But 40k a year might be worth it if you don't have much of anything else going on. If you're the GCU student, then this job is worth it, as it will help you avoid some debt if you last long enough. If you want free tuition, then the incarceration by way of cubicle might just be worth it.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you were faced with a challenging task and used your skills to solve it.   Answer Question
