I have been working at American Public University System full-time (More than 8 years)
Great benefits, flexibility, employee-friendly culture, opportunities to advance and learn new things. Free tuition for employees and discounted tuition for family members!
Different expectations and standards from department to department can create challenges ; communication across departments could improve.
Advice to Management
More communication from the top will help employees feel connected to the organization.
I applied online. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV) in August 2017.
I was called on a Wednesday afternoon for interviews on the following day with the SVP, Operations, Chief of Staff and the Provost. I was given no overview or prep for the position. Two weeks later, I interviewed with the Corporate Controller and Corporate CFO.
The interviews on Thursday were very engaging and results and accomplishment oriented.
The interview with the CFO was very different. I found him to be arrogant, rude and condescending. He focused on technical accounting questions which were not part of the job requirements. I asked about significant projects and areas of focus for the upcoming year. One of the major projects was a new front end system that two of the four interviewers had mentioned as a priority. He was VERY put off that I knew of the project and told me I should not know about that and even lectured me. When I asked questions about risk, he put it back to me and did not answer from his perspective.
There seems to be a disconnect between what the CFO is looking for and what the others on the leadership team are looking for. The position reports to the SVP of Operations not the CFO.
