I worked at Maine Maritime Academy full-time (More than 10 years)
Great sense of community, excellent benefits and pay. Not primarily a Liberal Arts school so students are for the most part goal orientated and focused on the degree. Meaning that they are a joy to work with making each day you go to work that much better. Colleagues are mostly dedicated to the school and take pride in their jobs and the caliber student that school produces.
The Academy has almost doubled in student population over the past decade and a half. While a Pro for the most part, change is sometimes painful as the Academy adjusts to meet the increased demands.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Maine Maritime Academy (Castine, ME).
Submitted an application for the ships electrician/electronics technician. Received a phone call to schedule an interview. Went slightly overdressed in a suit. Shirt and tie would have been a bit closer. Waited about 5 minutes at the door to the ship for the Captain and the manager. Went down to a small conference room. Very simple, straightforward questions about the information on my resume and experience that applies to that position. I don't have a maritime license, and my experience is with lower voltage equipment, but it seemed to go well enough. Took a 30 minute tour of the entire ship with the manager. Again everything seemed to go well, but did not receive a call back.
