    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of a phone screen, phone interview, three in-person interviews.

    Interviews consisted of average questions such as explain your current role, background, why I was looking for a change. Majority of interviewers explained their vision around role and organization.

    - Phone screen was standard; overall communication was very personable, optimistic.
    - Phone and in-person interviews consisted of standard interview questions as well as extensive, more relaxed conversation about our different backgrounds, strategy, etc.
    - One in-person interview was focused around using technology and tools.
    - Another in-person interview started 15 minutes late, interviewer seemed very disinterested and looked at their phone several times, literally barely said a word when I asked several questions, didn't walk me out of the office.

    Accessibility Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Remote, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Remote, OR).

    Interview

    An offer was extended to me with a salary of 15% less than what the recruiter originally quoted me. The offer was then taken away when I asked for the salary that was quoted to me. They never contacted me to let me know the offer was rescinded. I finally got back in touch with them only to hear they had filled the position. It was handled in an extremely unethical way. So poor. Awful place.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Portland, OR) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I took part in an online Adobe Connect screening interview in which I was asked basic questions about my resume and experience and the recruiter described the position. I was called back for a second interview, but I decided to decline as the work schedule would not work for me. The open position was Tuesday through Saturday and I was required to work from a home office and I travel some so this would not fit with my current lifestyle.
