I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University

Interview

The process was pretty standard for a virtual position, (phone screen, followed by two rounds of virtual interviewing) but one of the interviews was conducted with video on my end, but not the interviewer's. I forget her reasoning, but if you aren't able to appear on video as well, either switch it to a phone interview or reschedule.

I interviewed at Western Governors University

Interview

A very negative process. Got an email from a recruiter to schedule an initial phone interview then before even getting a chance to have that interview, I received an automated rejection email in 2 days. Reached out to the recruiter about it and she was very unresponsive until she finally replied and said the position has been filled. Not sure what kind of practice you guys are employing during your hiring process to reach out to someone to schedule an interview and send an automated rejection email in 2 days without even doing the interview. I probably won't pursue any opportunities with your organization in the future. Please be mindful of applicants' time.

I interviewed at Western Governors University

Interview

Interview was disorganized. Panel of 3 interviewers asked questions that were not effective at understanding my background or experience. Questions were specific to themselves. They also seemed standoffish and cold. Did not get a good vibe or a friendly tone from anyone. I opted to not have second interview. They also wanted me to sign a non-compete clause and do no outside work of any kind. Really? Not support my family with outside work? Silly. No thanks.
