    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ITT Technical Institute (Lake Mary, FL).

    Interview

    I was given a course topic related to the area of instruction (Firewalls) that I was interviewing for. I was asked to conduct a mock lecture session about 20 minutes in length. I presented in front of the IT Director and a couple of other instructors. Feedback was minimal, but the primary goal was to just see how you could command a classroom.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in March 2015.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview followed by in-person interview. Had to present a sample presentation and go over a few basic administrative tasks. There were no questions so asess my knowledge of any of the subjects I would be teaching.

    I was told I could teach 2 courses that I had very very little knowledge of, as they were desperate for instructors.
    I had to present a sample presentation that I had very little notice to prepare. I completely bombed it, and still got an offer
    I was in shock at how easy it was to become and instructor there. I can't imagine that students get a good value for their money, as they hire instructors who potentially cannot teach, or know the material.
    It did not seem like a well-run operation by an stretch of the imagination. I would call it borderline dishonest.
    I got an offer to teach 2 courses and could not say "No" fast enough.

    If you want an easy teaching job go for it. It certainly isn't difficult to get an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ITT Technical Institute (Sylmar, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call. Face to face chalk talk presentation. Discussion with Dean. It seems as if they are desperate for instructors with certain skill sets so they are not particularly discriminating. A warm body with a degree and the ability to speak English seems to be the only requirement for employment.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ITT Technical Institute (San Antonio, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process began with an phone interview. Afterwhich, a in person interview was required. During that time potential instructors were required to prepare a ten minute teaching presentation on a subject of your choice. Then a Q&A session was held. Finally you received feedback from the interview panel and things you did well and things that you could improve upon if this was a real class setting. After the presentation/interview, it took several weeks to receive a decision from the hiring team.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ITT Technical Institute (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    The hiring process took a little more than two months and I was already in the system. Everyone I talked to was extremely pleasant and inviting. The questions were normal, nothing to difficult or unexpected. Once I was offered the position It took about a semester to finish all of the paperwork.

    Interview Questions

    • Trying to condense a class into a 10 minute block was a struggle both times. Timing is everything, but busting the clock isn't a killer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation because this was essentially my first teaching job so I was just happy to be on a staff.

    Interview

    Very good, very honest and thorough. There is a teach back session involved where you technical and teaching skills are assessed. Usually done the same day as the interview. The faculty are very friendly, professional and direct. They made clear potential difficulties with the job to ensure you know what to expect. However hours and non-class duties where not disclosed until work began.
