I have been working at American Public University System full-time (More than 3 years)
Great working environment with a lot of autonomy and flexible schedule. Excellent managers in the school of business
Many projects and tasks outside of teaching along with a heavy teaching load
Advice to Management
Have content experts or vendors work with professors to update and renew courses instead of putting this on the professor or reduce the teaching load so there is more time for the other projects outside of the classroom.
I applied online. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV (US)) in August-2017.
I was called on a Wednesday afternoon for interviews on the following day with the SVP, Operations, Chief of Staff and the Provost. I was given no overview or prep for the position. Two weeks later, I interviewed with the Corporate Controller and Corporate CFO.
The interviews on Thursday were very engaging and results and accomplishment oriented.
The interview with the CFO was very different. I found him to be arrogant, rude and condescending. He focused on technical accounting questions which were not part of the job requirements. I asked about significant projects and areas of focus for the upcoming year. One of the major projects was a new front end system that two of the four interviewers had mentioned as a priority. He was VERY put off that I knew of the project and told me I should not know about that and even lectured me. When I asked questions about risk, he put it back to me and did not answer from his perspective.
There seems to be a disconnect between what the CFO is looking for and what the others on the leadership team are looking for. The position reports to the SVP of Operations not the CFO.
