    I worked at American Public University System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Full tuition costs are paid for by the university for Bachelor's and Master's courses, generous maternity leave, good company culture.

    Cons

    Management could be greatly improved, and there is prevalent micro-management as well. Specialists make so little, and the company should truly be ashamed that starting salaries are $15 an hour. $15 an hour is minimum wage in some states. No one can be expected to support their families when making so little.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on engagement and retention ideas for the busy worker bees at the bottom. Those at the top reap the financial benefits and are paid fairly. Those who are not senior level, however, are paid very poorly. Working overtime is also not allowed, but you will be reprimanded if you work an hour or two overtime and have to get prior approval.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The recruiting, contact, scheduling, assessment, and interview process was very straightforward and formalized. Unfortunately at the end there was no follow-up from APUS following the face to face interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Several questions from the PMBOK and a couple scenario based questions.   Answer Question
