    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    After submitting an on-line application a telephone interview follows. If acceptable, then an invitation to a face-to-face session with other applicants to "teach" a 10 minutes lesson to demonstrate facilitation and creative teaching skills. If accepted, the applicant is assigned a mentor to follow the applicant through a six-week training course. The in-person course provides the teaching methods and how to use them in the classroom and on-line. On-line is the communication hub between facilitator and students. The on-line classroom enables posting course policies, syllabus, grades, and announcements to ensure student success. The final phase is to teach an actual course under the direction of the facilitator's mentor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Phoenix.

    Interview

    I got a call from the Recruiter and did an initial phone screening. I heard NOTHING for about a month. Out of the blue, I got a call to schedule a face to face interview right away. I interviewed with the team leader. She was really sick, and seemed very distracted. I thought it was a no-go. A week or two later, I got another call to set up a follow up interview with another team member, who asked the same questions as the team leader. Several weeks later, I was notified that they liked me, will do a back ground interview and then, if I pass, they will make me an offer. This took another 2 weeks. They made me a generous offer and I accepted.

    • Typical position, situational, and personality questions.   Answer Question
