    Make your own hours, providing you meet all deadlines and key meetings. Good team, a supportive Director. Given autonomy over your work and class.


    Programs are laborious and take a lot more time than needed. Extra work is at a very low rate.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA) in Oct 2023


      The process was very quick and seamless thanks to Shaina's (the hiring recruiter) great line of communication! Met virtually with the hiring manager and former admin to discuss my credentials and how I could be a good fit. Then met with a couple members of the department that I will be working closely with.
