I worked at Association for Supervision full-time (More than a year)
Excellent HR department-very professional staff. They work hard and it shows, ASCD finds great talent so that more often than not, your colleagues are intelligent and enjoyable to work with. Wonderfully flexible and progressive on the issue of teleworking. If you have children, this is a company that will support you.
The company itself feels a bit like a sinking ship, but they are working to solve this problem. Part of this has to do with management, some of which are vastly out of touch with current trends, but ASCD seems to be radically restructuring, so this may be sorted with time.
Advice to Management
Spend more time in the industry/with newer staff to get fresher ideas, products, and procedures; the continual decline in revenue seems to be causing an even greater sense of desperation so that the original ASCD mission is blurred by the marked urgency to regain its own footing in the industry. Upper management needs a better handle on industry trends.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Association for Supervision (Alexandria, VA) in January 2010.
After applying online for a posted position, I was called in for an interview. The interview lasted around one hour in a little cubicle with a person who was in the same position I was applying for. Within a week, I received a call asking me to fill in on a temporary (freelance) basis editing course materials. I accepted. During the freelance assignment, it was unclear whether I was being considered for the posted job (which was a permanent position). Throughout the freelance assignment, the job remained posted on the company website. I assumed that once the freelance project was completed I would enter into a more formal interview and selection process but by the time the freelance job was completed someone else had been hired for the permanent position.
