    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Skagit Valley College (Mount Vernon, WA).

    Interview

    Very informal. I approached them and was hired on the spot. I was later told there had been a complaint to Human Resources because there should have been a more formalized process. Regardless, I was hired, but I knew someone in my department was unhappy. I immediately became aware of the dysfunctional office politics. Especially when I witnessed two faculty arguing sarcastically in the hallway.

    A Non-exempt, Non-faculty, General Clerical Type Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mount Vernon, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Skagit Valley College (Mount Vernon, WA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for a job and never heard anything. I called, but was told it was in review (whatever that meant). Then I got a call with an offer for an interview. On the day of the interview, a person took me for a tour of the campus. I think they were getting a "feel" for me and some of the questions of comments seemed odd. Then I went to building where there were 3 other candidates. We were called in an introduced to a group of people from the campus. Questions seemed typical of formal HR textbook type stuff, but a couple were downright weird...to make you think on your feet, I think. Overall it was polite and orderly; and not overly friendly...cold if anything. I got the feeling someone was already selected and they were going through the motions. Then, it took forever for me to get a "sorry" notice that someone that better met their needs had been selected. A very frustrating, cold, and slow process for a clerical position. I hope this isn't typical of how all government works!
