    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Answered and submitted a few supplemental questions online mid-December 2016. Was notified via email one month later that I was the #1 candidate. Was then to attend interview mid-February 2017. They ask the same questions from the application given online. The panel seemed stiff and had no enthusiasm. It was difficult to be myself because I had a lot of energy and motivation in the interview. I followed up 3 weeks later with HR and no response. It took them a month to respond via email saying my skills were great, but they were going to re-post the job online and if I want to be considered for employment, I had to reapply again. Right when I was going to reapply 3 days later, the job opening was gone in the beginning of April 2017.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and attended 2 interviews following a written exam that tested for basic clerical skills. Both interviews are recorded and the process was thorough. I was notified through email for the first interview, and called for the second. The interviews are not daunting, but do emphasize a background in working in the higher education system, so do keep that in mind.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Sent typing certification.
    Applied online.
    Took test got 80% no interview. Person has to score 94%. Other parts of the government it's 70%.

    Test is based on knowing word, excel, simple math, and customer service (trick questions). The test was poorly written. Other parts of the government the test would be written 100% better.

    Probably hired an insider. All of this is smoke and mirrors. Don't bother unless you think your going to get 90 percentile or 100% just for admin job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Long Beach City College (Long Beach, CA).

    Interview

    For adjuncts, we had an application. When I tried for a tenure track line, the competition was great, and there were many hard questions. Also, we always have a "pretend" lecture for 10-20 minutes. For an adjunct part time job, we just showed up. Most times, I have got in when we needed a last-minute opening.
