    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Park University (Parkville, MO) in January 2018.

    Interview

    DON'T BOTHER APPLYING!!!! PU uses a bizarre and arcane system. You are required to go through everything necessary to be hired: transcripts, references, application, etc. And then....wait for it!!!! You are placed on a waitlist with over a million? other approved? instructors? And, even then, they repeatedly tell you "Please note that the University does not guarantee any current nor potential adjuncts future appointments and makes these decisions on a term by term basis. The University appoints adjuncts based upon a variety of factors with an emphasis on the needs of our students. Based on operational needs of the University, your Park ID may be removed from the waitlist at any time without notification" with every communication. So....what is the point of all the effort, paperwork, and annoying your references ONE MORE TIME!!!! Geesh!! Not sure even if I won the lottery finally, I would be all that keyed up to do it after that. (I tried to include the url to show you the HUGE waitlist, but GD won't let me. Go to park(dot)edu and/or search for Instructor Waitlist By Course.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Park University.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Park University shortly after applying online. They conducted a phone interview with me and then proceeded with an on-site interview the following week. The position only required a HS Diploma and 1-2 years of experience. Well, I have a college degree in Technical Writing and was looking for beginner work while taking some Grad classes. However, I was more than qualified for the position.

    When I walked into the Admin. Office, all of the employees were middle-aged and older women. I could automatically tell that there was a "click" type atmosphere in the office. The interview itself went well. Typical interview, but we just sat around in a circle with no table inside a small personal office (odd).

    A week after my interview I was called and told that I was not selected for the position. This was a shock, but after reading other reviews of the college on Glassdoor, I knew why I was not selected. Turns out they hired another middle-aged woman to fit in with their group. It didn't seem like the office liked change or competition of any kind.

    Interview

    Interview went well and both interviews were Associate Directors. Was shown around the department and had a brief (very brief) tour of a small part of campus. It overall was good (panel style) but I would have liked to see more of campus and gotten a longer tour.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Park University (Parkville, MO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    On the day of the interview I had to take a computer typing test and pass with a 75%. The test was based on grammar, spelling and how many words you could type in 5-10 minutes. I passed after one attempt. Im sure if you were a nice person they would let you attempt the test twice. The interview after that was quick and simple.
