I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EdisonLearning (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2016.
The Student Success Director accommodated me after I showed up as a "walk in," just a day after submitting my application. I wanted to skirt around the HR process and show initiative. The director allowed me to express my qualifications for about 45 minutes. I was told that I had a made a good impression, and would be recommended for a follow up interview, and was already a few steps ahead.
I received a call just 2 days later, and spoke with their HR department. They asked about salary requirements. There was zero wiggle room. I set up an interview with the director and department chair for just a few days after the phone call.
I was interviewed for an hour and answered questions about workflow and efficiency, was given (1) subject related question, and then responded in writing to 3-4 pages of typical student questions, with which I had to either rewrite the question or respond with feedback to a student's sample answer.
I was now allowed to ask any questions I had. I was not told when I would be contacted in the future, and I failed to ask. I waited a few days before I called HR and asked where they were in the interviewing process. I was told that they were still interviewing, were in a rush, but wanted to find the right candidate. I wrote a follow-up email to the director, thanking him for accommodating me the first time, and also for the second, formal interview.
I was sent an email on a Saturday afternoon that another candidate had been selected, and that it was likely because of the large "candidate pool."
