Adjunct Professor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan University (Saint Louis, MO).

Interview

I interviewed for the job, although the interview was pretty casual. Once I passed that step, I had to come back in to audition for the job by delivering a short lesson. Attendees completed a written evaluation of my presentation, then the Dean discussed my scores with me. I was evaluated on presentation style, vocal projection, use of the whiteboard, clarity of the lesson itself, and more. Once hired, I had to submit official transcripts and complete a lot of onboarding paperwork and required online training (sexual harassment, security, etc.). The whole process from the call for the interview to being ready to teach my first class was probably close to three weeks.

Interview Questions

  • I was graded down for mentioning that I was tired (I worked a night job at the time, so I had had very little sleep) to a few people before the actual lesson began. Since I had not been aware that I was already being evaluated, I was somewhat taken aback by this.   Answer Question

Negotiation

There was no negotiation. For each course, the professor signs a contract for that ten week term. Salary starts out at $1,000 per course.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan University (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Very rigorous with a thorough background check and extensive online training.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no liberty in teaching. Everything was done exactly the same way with no leeway for instructor liberty in teaching. Short time schedule to grade several assignments. Overloaded instructors with work. The compensation really comes out to a negative with all of the time spent. They require weekly live sessions (Adobe Connect) with slides with online students as well. Some people may like working for them because everyone has different tastes and expectations. Personally, I was glad to get out of there and would not look back!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negation. You had the choice to take it or leave it.
