    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seattle University in March 2015.

    Interview

    About a month and a half after I applied I got an email from the hiring manager asking if I was still interested. A week later she got back to me again and arranged a phone interview. It was only 30 minutes (no opportunity to go longer - she even gave me a 3 minute warning) and she very obviously had a standard set of questions she had to ask everyone. A couple days after that I was invited to a second round of interviews. This one took about 1.5 hours. First I interviewed with the hiring mgr and another mgr in the department for about an hour. They had a mix of situational and direct questions. Then I was walked over to another department where I met with a VP that I would also be working with. Two days later they checked my references. About 4 days after that she got back to me offering the job. It required a background check. No negotiations at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Seattle University (Seattle, WA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Easy, they hired every applicant and just gave each of us less hours, which is kind of aggravating. Also several of the tutors don't have good English skills, and don't actually want to tutor, they just want to hang out and study and get paid for it, and are actively hostile when people show up needing help.
