I worked at Art Institute of Chicago part-time (More than a year)
Friendly and helpful staff, everyone pitches in to help you and there's never any worrying about what you're suppose to be doing
Depending on what part you work in, it can be a different experience. For instance I worked as an OA for one of the student housing buildings and the staff were a lot less organized.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL).
Applied online, and about a week or two later, got email for phone interview. Had phone interview, and was told about in person interview two days later. Had that as well. Thought everything went nicely. Weeks passed and did not hear anything. I initially asked in interview how long the process would take, was told they wanted someone by end of month. End of month had passed, so I decided to send my first follow-up email to inquire about the status of my application, asking if anything else was needed. Didn't hear back from hiring manager so I contacted HR. The same day, and I want to say within the same hour, was told a decision was not made yet and wouldn't be made until the end of the week. I'm thinking "end of work week," not on the weekend. Anyway, after me inquiring, then I get a response. This process was highly unprofessional, and I know for sure if I wouldn't have took the initiative to inquire about an update, I would still be left in the dark. I had put in for other positions here, but after this gruesome experience, i am withdrawing all applications from Art Institute. HR or the hiring managers here do not value potential employees' time, and their lack of value to potential employees is highly disrespectful. Be mindful when applying for positions here because if you are not selected, you will definitely feel as if your time and energy was completely WASTED. Happy job hunting elsewhere, everyone!
