    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Johnson & Wales University.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted three days later asking for a phone interview for the next day. I found it odd that the phone interview was taking place during a lunch hour. I was contacted five minutes late and one of the two interviewers had a somewhat arrogant attitude throughout the interview. She gave a sarcastic apology about calling late because according to her, that's what happens when you do phone interviews. Let's just say I knew the minute I heard her name, it was going to be a bogus interview because she knew a former co-worker at my last employer.

    She kept talking down to me and saying things I felt were a way to insult or antagonize me. I thought it was funny how she said I would have to be taught a few things regarding technology even though I graduated from a college that specializes in it and I have 20 years of experience using it, but seeing as how I graduated so long ago, things have changed and she was sure I would need to be trained. She also said in a snotty tone I would be working w/people who had doctorates and such, as if to say I'd be working with people who were much smarter than me.

    She told me they would be contacting people for a face to face the following week and having them come in the week after that and wanted someone to start immediately the beginning of February. Since she just told me what I wanted to know I didn't have any questions, but she kept asking if I had any questions. What else should I have asked in a preliminary phone interview? Aren't you supposed to ask the important questions during the face to face?

    I never heard back and trust me, I was fine with that. Not only did Miss Personality waste my time with her rude and bogus interview, I also read so many bad reviews on this site about what a terrible place it is to work.

    Faculty - Associate Professor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Wales University (Charlotte, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Average process with a search panel. One thing I will say is that during my teaching demo, one of the search committee members was on their cellphone the ENTIRE time---literally from before I started to the end. At first I thought it was a practicum in classroom management but realized that person really was just being rude. How can that person give me a fair score let alone a good one? Ultimately the position was cancelled, but it just showed me that there are some unfair selection processes in the search committee.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johnson & Wales University.

    Interview

    Asked a lot of good questions, stated they would call back but never did. The had more than one person in the room interviewing over the speaker phone so it made it very difficult to hear what each person was saying or to know exactly who you were talking to.
