    Instructional Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northern Arizona University.

    Interview

    Called for interview and they wanted the interview on a specific day. Obliged their request and traveled for the interview. No offers to pay for anything. Scheduling done by a friendly HR scheduler. All the communication went through the scheduler. She was super nice, but had to run any changes past their committee. Paid way too much on travel expenses, such as plane ticket, rental car, hotel, etc. The process was very formalized. Met at the door, taken in for the interview, signed papers, asked questions, escorted out.

    Received a very rude canned rejection call two days later.

    Interview

    No interview was necessary for this position. I did end up visiting the campus for a day before I decided to enroll in the master's program, but it was by choice and not a formal interview. After I accepted the admission offer, I was offered a contract as a graduate teaching assistant (GTA) which is renewable on a yearly basis.

    Interview

    Expressed interest in management position to professional staff; they scheduled interview shortly after. The selection process involves professional staff observing your on-the-job competencies well before you even apply for the position. The entry-level student position is Student Admissions Specialist, and you must hold that position for at least a year before attempting to apply for the senior position.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Two days of interviewing included an informal introduction to the department, interview with the search committee via conference call, student interview session, 1-hour interview one-on-one with the dean, research talk (informal, yet well attended), two dinner interviews with faculty, and a lunch interview with faculty. Overall, the interview was not as stressful as others, however I could tell that the graduate level students and the faculty took the interview seriously. I received an offer within 1-week of the in person interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Northern Arizona University.

    Interview

    Submitted an application to the University for the PhD Program. Was accepted but only after they offered me a paying position while other universities offered me free tuition. If I had known about the near double cost of living expenses in Flagstaff I would have turned them down for a more urban environment where the option to work outside of the University was viable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northern Arizona University.

    Interview

    I found the position open on Jobs for Jacks (site for students to find jobs). I emailed the main coordinator saying I was interested in applying and asked for the application, then I filled out the detailed application with a few long questions (asking about how you deal with conflicts, etc.). A faculty member of NAU that I was in a program with sent in a recommendation for me, though I don't think it's necessary. I was asked in for an interview and it was a basic process. Questions about why I think I'm right for the job, my past experience, classic interview questions.
