    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Phoenix.

    Interview

    Submitted app online, got an email from a recruiter a week or two later. About 3-4 weeks later did a phone interview, took about 20-30 minutes. The phone interview were basic questions, why do you want to work here, tell us about your experience, etc. After the phone interview you are selected to attend faculty training, which is 4 weeks long and a giant pain in the butt, you will be in "class" with 10-15 other instructors, and will lose 1/4 of them to the process. At the end (I forgot to mention none of this is paid...), if you pass, you then are assigned a mentor and an online class, and you meet with the mentor for 2 weeks prior (all online, and again.. all free...). Once you start your first class you get paid, once at the end of the 1st week (which in reality doesn't hit your bank until the 3rd week), and your final check comes about 3 weeks after class ends. If you pass the mentorship, then congrats, you are now authorized to teach... err facilitate... great job...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at University of Phoenix in October 2012.

    Interview

    After applying on their website, I was called by one of their recruiters for a pre-screening interview. After the pre-screening I was told that the next step was an interview with a department head. I was later told that they didn't hire online instructors from Texas because of tax laws, which didn't make sense to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2011.

    Interview

    There was an online application followed by a very brief phone screening from a recruiter. After the phone screening, I had an interview with an Enrollment Manager. I then had another phone interview with Campus Director because I lived out of town. The Campus Director then routed me back to the Campus Director of Enrollment for a final phone interview that felt like more of a formality.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was pretty straight forward. I had a general phone interview and I discussed why I wanted to teach. I submitted my resume and my teaching philosophy. I was contact a week later and asked to attend a 4 week course which would determine if I would be able to teach a trial class. I did well with the class and was able to teach the class afterward. I was shadowed by another teacher. After my class was completed, I was contacted about two weeks later or so and I was told I was able to teach at University of Phoenix. This was back in 2010.
