    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design.

    Interview

    Phone call followed by an in-person interview with direct boss and boss's boss. It was fairly casual as far as an interview goes and went section by section over my resume. I received a phone call with an offer shortly afterwards.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design in June 2015.

    Interview

    Too many steps to the process and very slow to respond. Took 3 months total from start to finish and long gaps of not hearing anything back. Not good at describing the actual benefits you will receive. Very miss leading.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Got an interview within a week of applying. The first interview was a quick interview with a staff recruiter over on Skype. Probably lasted 10 minutes. It was a pleasant interview. I was told that she was happy enough with me and that a recommendation would be made to go to the next level. Few days later I had the second interview with the same recruiter and the head of admissions. It was done over Skype too. However, since then it's been at least 6 weeks and I have had no contact, not even courtesy email. Quite disappointing!

    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Two Skype sessions about a week or so apart, and then an on-campus interview. Total process took about 4-5 weeks. The Skype interviews were about 45 minutes, and the on-campus was 27 minutes total. Skype interview was very in-depth about approaches to recruitment and moving from a student development role into recruiting, and more about my goals as a professional. On-campus consisted of four people including the Staff Recruiter. I was asked to prepare a five-minute presentation imagining that my audience consisted of high school students who knew nothing about SCAD. Was asked generic questions about how to build relationships with students, how I feel about speaking in front of large crowds, had my presentation, and then was able to ask one follow question of my own. The staff recruiter is amazing. Extremely personal, gets to know you as a person, and really appreciates you as an applicant - something I don't see very often. However, the on-campus interview itself felt very impersonal. I could tell they had several interviews lined up that afternoon and was shocked that it only took half an hour. Most higher ed on-campus interviews consist of an agenda for the entire day/afternoon. I walked away pretty much knowing I didn't get the job. After three days, I received the standard HR e-mail confirming so. Overall, I was impressed with the process until the actual panel interview.

    Interview

    Skype Interview- the interviewer split the time (30 minutes) as her half and my half to ask questions/converse. She asked about my previous experience and specific SCAD knowledge so be prepared to know some facts and be confident in talking about htem.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta, GA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    After I applied online, I was asked to a phone interview. It was 20-30 minutes long and very positive--the HR person was very friendly and also answered my questions very openly. I was then asked for an in-person interview, which involved the admissions director and the same HR person. The questions were pretty easy in that they were the typical interview questions, so if you are prepared for those, you should be fine. Then, I was asked for another in person interview with another HR person and the VP of admissions. I had to do a presentation, and the interview was a bit more awkward than the other two--sometimes repetitive, unclear questions were asked, and I wasn't sure exactly what they were asking or how to respond. Still, the people were very friendly, and made sure to emphasize aspects of the job that would not be ideal for some people.

    Reasons for Declining

    Another offer. I was also hesitant due to the repeated emphasis on poor work-life balance. I don't mind working extra hours, but I personally don't want to have to do it every week when I'm not getting paid hourly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Montpelier, VT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process started as a phone call by HR to set up a time. She told me one time, and then emailed me a confirmation of a different time. I emailed back with no response. Since the interview was through skype, I waited around for almost an hour. once they finally called in, the questions were very scripted, it was not conversational.

    Model Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, GA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Three or four people were involved in the interview, all from HR I think. They basically asked about my previous experience, my availability, and my reasons for wanting to model. There was never a request for a photo or anything before they met me and they didn't need references. I think they basically wanted to make sure I wasn't a gross pervert and that I would show up on time--what else do you really need to ask an artists' model?
