    IT Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Seattle Central Community College (Seattle, WA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I was asked basic interview questions, about qualifications and previous work experience by the direct manager and upper management. This is followed by a skills assessment of basic computer application support on Windows and OSX platforms. The assessment is observed, and takes place on several computers and in different rooms, reflecting the slightly hectic work environment. Overall, it is an easy process, as long as you are personable, patient, and have practical, proven computer skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Seattle Central Community College in May 2014.

    Interview

    I've interviewed for a number of full and part-time teaching positions at a variety of colleges in past and had a good number of successes. With that said, this was one of the most lengthy and involved interviews I've ever had to teach one class as an adjunct. The person who arranged everything, along with the rest of the committee were very nice and they seemed like they would be great colleagues but having to deal with a committee with a long list of predetermined questions clearly generated from HR, and having to do a full blown teaching demo in a tiny room with four people to be hired for one class was total overkill. I've worked as an adjunct at several other places and never gone through so much. Then to be told they really, really loved me but I didn't get it. Please drop the long list of predetermined HR questions, they are absolutely terrible and are so formal and stilted (I only seem to run into them at Community Colleges.) Take a cue from the 4 year colleges and trust your faculty to be able to ask the questions.

    • They weren't difficult, only awkwardly formal and packed with HR speak including the latest buzzwords.   1 Answer

    IT Specialist IV Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Seattle Central Community College (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Pretty average experience. Interviews are always done by a committee. Only had one interview, an in person interview with three interviewers. None of the logic questions you see in tech interviews today were asked. Completing application to being hired is a long, drawn out process. I'd have given up on the job since so much time had gone by when I finally got offered the job.

    ESL Instructor (Tenure) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Seattle Central Community College (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    5 person panel. Applicant is handed a list of seven questions and given approx. 5 minutes to look them over before the interview begins. Panel asks the questions from the list, then applicant is allowed time to ask questions of the panel members. The panelists seemed as if they hadn't seen my resume prior to interviewing me. They also arrived 30 minutes late to the interview. The panelists seemed annoyed at some of the questions I asked them, particularly when I asked what their plan for integrating more technology into their courses looked like over the next five years. One of them answered that "having students use MS Word in class is a good use of technology." I didn't even know how to respond to that. It seems like SCC is lightyears behind some of the other area schools in terms of making technology a key component of their curricula, especially when it comes to ABE and ESL programs.
