    Adjunct Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterbury, CT
    Accepted Offer
    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 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterbury, CT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Residence Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was casual and low-key. The Dean of Students was friendly and easy to interact with. She was communicative, but the waiting process was a little drawn out and longer than expected, leading to anxiety.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I went through a staffing agency, they placed me and I got an interview that week. Two hours after my interview they gave my staffing agency an offer who told me if I would like I could start in two weeks. Overall it was a very simple hiring process. Simpler if you go direct through Post's HR and not a staffing agency.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but that is because I went through a staffing agency so the power was in their hands, not sure how direct recruits are treated in this regard.

    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted via email regarding unexpected opening - wanted to know my availability. I was. Both interviewers were the "management team" I would be working for. Lots of talk about we don't spoonfeed our kids but they need lots of special attention. They were both friendly enough and asked on point questions related to teaching style, integration within their system.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation - it is presented as this is what we offered. Later in conversations with other adjuncts I learned someone with a masters was being paid same as I with a PhD.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process for me was very laid back. I was contacted just a few days after submitting my application. I spoke with the HR rep for a few weeks via phone before I could make it to campus. Once I arrived, I interviewed with one of the Assistant Directors. We talked about hobbies, my career goals, and a little bit about the culture of school. My second interview was a bit more formal with some harder work-related questions. From the moment I walked in each time, I saw smiles on faces and everyone said hello. It seemed like a buzzing environment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer is competitive especially in this economy. Most people working in admissions are young and just starting a career, so the benefits and salary are often worth it for the experience.
