    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macalester College.

    Interview

    Phone interview with the usual questions. I felt the HR person was the wrong one to be conducting the interview, as I don't think one person can have an intimate understanding of the particulars of every position at the college. I found her condescending and brusque, and would have liked to know more about the position than she could tell me.
