    Adjunct Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterbury, CT

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview itself was quick and easy -- I just talked about my research, and they were like cool, you're on board. Everything else was slow, confusing, and frustrating. The amount of paperwork they required was extensive; I had to pay to have transcripts sent even from institutions I attended over 10 years ago. The worst, however, was a week-long online training that was tedious, patronizing, and at times disquieting (it seemed like they were trying to figure out how to get as much out of instructors as possible without paying them any additional income). It was just hoop after hoop, and then with days until the semester started, they came back to me and said they did not actually have anything for me to teach. They have contacted me a couple of times since then, but I basically said "thanks but no thanks." It was a weird experience -- they technically did hire me/offer me a position, but when it actually came down to it, there wasn't an actual position. I just had done all this training and paperwork for no real reason.

    Admissions Counselor OEI Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Post University (Middlebury, CT).

    Interview

    I applied online and 1 week later received a phone call from HR. The HR conducted a phone interview in which she asked 5 questions about my resume, past experiences, and why would I want to work at an Online University rather than a real one. Was also asked salary range but was informed it's capped at $35000. I then got setup for an in person interview that week. I met with this lady with a spray tan and another with a ponytail so tight I could read her mind. They kept emphasizing this is more of a sales job but that there are no quotas...They also asked how competitive I am, though I don't see how trying to help students get an education is a competitive sport. Lastly, they asked about my personal life and explained it's because there are cliques and groups in the department and they want to know which social circle they would stick me in.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because my intuition was right, I looked at reviews of Post University online and found out this is not a job worth taking and a mess of place to work.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview and then in person interview with HR and 2 managers. Not an overly welcoming environment when interviewing. Standard inside sales type questions were asked with a couple tough ones thrown in. I answered them thoroughly and with a lot of thought, but did not get an offer. They did also mention that the position requires at least 100 outbound phone calls per day. Sounded to me like more of a high pressure sales job than admissions.
