    Online Adjunct Professor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palm Bay, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University (Palm Bay, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First one sends transcripts and work evaluations, then one is called for a phone interview.
    Know your answers to the common questions. I sue would recommend common phone practices for interviews, such as being upbeat, being prepared with your best answers, since they may interview many candidates.

    There are several other steps to future evaluations, and a Dean may then examine many interviewees (even though i cannot verify that for certain.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University.

    Interview

    Filled out the application online. Then I received an email asking for my official transcripts and then it asked me to fill out a 'survey' The survey was basically my thoughts on higher education. About a week later they asked me for a phone interview and 4 references. Unfortunately there was not a lot of notice given, email then interview 2 days later. Still I had the interview but received a little attitude about only 2/4 references being filled out. Sorry but come on give people some time! Plus the phone interview was in the morning so it hadn't even been 48 hours since I sent them the request. Then I was told I'd hear back in less than a week and I did.

    Overall it was a lot of work done really fast but then they were just as fast so thats nice.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was a long drawn out process. The interviews were set up informally and it was a bit awkward. I was asked back for a second interview to meet with other members of the team and it ended up being a 4 person panel interview. Very unlike the first round. It's clear I wasn't the right fit for what they were looking for, so I feel like they wasted my time by drawing out the process. When I checked in with them a week after the second interview, they told me they were going to put off the decision for a few more weeks and then never got back to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University (Manchester, NH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    National Employment handles all incoming hires. You will be paid $15 / hour during your 90 day temp period. During the temporary period your employment is incredibly tenuous and you will be terminated immediately if there's any indication at all that you aren't exactly what they want. During our two week training period, 30% of our class was terminated. After the training, 19 out of the 20 people that made it to "the floor" were retained and converted perm. If you're going to get launched, it will most likely be in the first two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you didn't meet a goal and what you did about it   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. And although National Employment indicated that negotiation would be possible upon conversion to perm, that is not true. Everyone who was retained got another buck an hour.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University (Manchester, NH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Hired through temp agency. ~15 minute interview, just wanted to know more about you.Could have done over the phone, since the entire position was made up of over the phone communication. Expected more questions during the interview, but they were mass hiring (30+), so I guess they just needed bodies. once in the job, they freely fire based on skills/how easy you pick up the job.
