    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Louis University.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for a video interview with the search committee after about 2 weeks. It was a screening interview and the questions were more at the macro level. The interview lasted about 20-30 minutes. They asked about my opinion on various educational issues (e.g. diversity) and there were no specific questions about my research and teaching experience.

    Academic Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at National Louis University (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The process was fairly straight forward. Everything is listed on their website. They have a sheet now that gives an idea or screenshot of what someone doing the job can expect. Apply online and follow the details exactly on the career website. It's pointless to try to call into the Human Resources department.

    Enrollment Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Louis University (Wheeling, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Worst interview I've ever been on; I was only interviewed as a courtesy to my boss and that was evident after and during the interview. The interviewers asked inappropriate and irrelevant questions. They even told me I was better suited for another department. The turnaround from the time that I applied to the time they contacted me to schedule the interview was quick - I would say this is the only positive thing I have to say about the entire experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at National Louis University (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Looks like they haven't changed. The lack of professionalism is alarming. They had me come back 3 times, and each time I would see the other candidate I was against. Also, one of the VP had me waiting outside her office 15 minutes after our scheduled time and had the nerve to tell me she is pressed for time and we only had 20 min. I was rushed and she was rude. They told me that was the final round and sure enough emailed me 3 days later to tell me they have another interview round including a presentation that they wanted a lame powerpoint given to students. I don't know any young adult that likes a powerpoint. The directors are young and very very inexperienced. They are nervous talkers and you can hear there voices shaking. Even though I gave an excellent presentation and the students and I interacted beautifully I didn't get the position because they choose the younger candidate (I know this because I saw who she was). The director told me that I would hear back the next day, and she didn't contact me, three days later she made an excuse and said they will make a decision two days later and I should hear from her by the end of that day. Yes, you guessed it she did not. She finally cowardly sent an email the next day saying they chose the other candidate, but would like my permission to keep my resume on file because of my amazing experience. Who writes like that? Honestly, the only thing I am disappointed with is myself for not running away when I saw the unprofessionalism. The place is so disorganized. It is stale and cramped. Our first interview was in an electrical closet! Also, the pay is a joke for what they put candidates through. They are trying real hard to be like the more respected universities, but in order to achieve that you have to act professional like them. Everything happens for a reason, luckily I was offered a position the next day at a more prestigious university where my talents will be appreciated. Thanks NLU for showing me what I don't want in a employer.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Louis University in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of me giving a presentation, then one on one interviews with the Dean and Provost. After the interview it took three months for the HR department to make a decision regarding my status. I was told that the department was undergoing leadership changes and would get back to me. This process was unnecessarily long considering they did not offer me the position.
