I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (United States)

Interview

I didn’t actually apply for this job, they found me. There was an initial phone interview with a not very professional sounding HR person, who made it clear that I shouldn’t have high expectations as far as compensation. An hour long video interview with 3 people (which was postponed once to a later date) went fairly well, everyone was friendly, but there were immediate red flags, like them saying the job has poor life/work balance, and asking outdated questions like “tell us 5 things about yourself”. Then came the reddest flag: a spec project: an immortal practice which allows potential employers get free work from creative professionals. This practice, although looked down upon in the field, is still somewhat common with recent grads who are trying to get their foot in the door. Asking someone with 15+ years work experience for such a thing means a prospective employer is either looking to take advantage of you, is unable to judge an existing portfolio, or is simply trying to see how bendable (susceptive to workplace abuse) you are. I agreed to the project, thinking the gig sounds interesting enough. I should’ve known better. The actual project, which I expected to be fairly simple, was a massive, multilayered assignment that I could easily charge 10K for in the real world. Meanwhile I was asked for a cover letter two weeks after the interview. Strangely casual emails with smiley faces also made me question professionalism of this group. By the time I was working on the project I knew I didn’t want the job, but went through with it since I gave a promise. I received a formal rejection letter on Friday morning. (HR people, don’t send these on Fridays, you are ruining people’s weekends). I am not upset that I didn’t get the job, I had some big concerns. I am however pretty angry by the amount of time and effort they demanded, and how used it made me feel.

Interview

Was contacted for interview; did follow-up and then teaching demonstration. All went pretty smoothly. Have to submit credentials and I think they'll do a background check. The interview was relatively painless with typical questions being asked of me.

There were no technical question asked - it was all behavioral and fit-based. There were two interviews, one with a group of two, and then with a group of three people. One of the easiest interviews I've had.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, GA) in Dec 2019

Interview

I applied as they indicated and sent work samples as customary. I later received a call from their HR and the woman was actually angry that I sent the sample. I asked her why and she would only say they samples are not accepted. Keep in mind this place is supposed to pride itself on creativity and original thinking and this person was angry for me expressing this and showing proof of mine. She was upset to the point that I suggested she send it back at my expense if she wanted....she didn't. Odd. I later spoke to a recruiter for a phone interview in December '19 who was a nice enough fellow who seemed knowledgeable. He said he would let me know within two weeks telling me I could call if I had any questions. He never returned calls or replied to emails. He finally let me know March 3 '20 that I was turned down despite my having done prototyping for SpaceX, NASA, Northrop Grumman, and more. Some of my work has appeared in a Smithsonian Affiliate Museum.

Interview Questions
  • Asked about experience in both conventional and high tech prototyping?

Interview

After I applied for the job online, I was interviewed by two of my advisors. The process was very chill and informal, but still very professionally minded. They're main questions had to deal with being able to handle high stress situations and conflicts. There was also a lot of importance on being friendly and nice, since you also have to work as a sort of ambassador for SCAD for the parents.
