    Senior Finance Accountant & Cost Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Heald College (Madera, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    A company recruiter contacted me to schedule a phone interview. The interviewer was some regional director, who didn't speak English well and had a tight schedule as he was preparing to fly to Mexico. I also work part-time until I can get hired by someone full-time and tried to schedule any interviews around my part-time job. The interviewer wasn't that accommodating and I had to sit in my car outside of my job in the middle of a hot Fresno summer just to talk to him. I was also scheduled for a face-to-face interview the next day, but that got cancelled because this regional director didn't believe I was a good candidate, based on a phone interview. The situation wasn't very professional on their part, they could have at least allowed me to meet them face-to-face for additional insight from a different person's perspective.

    Instructor, College Or University Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Heald College (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    I was an Adjunct who applied for a Full Time position via the Heald Intranet site. My current supervisor contacted me within a week. I met with the Supervisor to go over my resume and qualifications. Then, I was invited to provide a sample lesson plan to a panel of Instructors/Program Directors/AA Director which lasted about 15 minutes. They were excellent "students" and responded well to my example lesson. I used the White Board and a handout and made sure to engage the panel and elicited feedback/responses from them as if I was teaching students.
    I got very nice comments and questions and was offered the position. It helped that I had been adjunct on another campus with great results and got an excellent recommendation from my Supervisor there, but I was also qualified for the position and very enthusiastic about providing a great classroom experience and following all company policies and goals.
    I was given an offer letter and was started out on a salary dictated by corporate for my level of experience and education.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Heald College (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    The interview process was simple - submit resume, interview with Academic Director, and complete a teaching demonstration. However, the lack of timeliness and correct information on when, where, and what he teaching demonstration was to be made preparations difficult. Also, they did not respond to follow-up phone calls in a timely manner.
