INTERVIEW PROCESS

Phone Screen

If you are selected as a candidate for a current opening, we will contact you via email to schedule an introductory phone screen with a member of our Human Resources team or the Hiring Manager. This is a high-level discussion about your applicable experience, career motivations, and expectations. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about our organizational goals, position scope and answer any initial questions about the role and/or hiring process details.

If there is a mutual fit following the initial conversation, we will schedule virtual interviews with additional team members to dive deeper.

Virtual Interviews

We conduct behavior-based panel and/or one-one-one interviews—a thorough, planned, and systematic way to gather and evaluate information about what candidates have done in the past to show how they would handle future situations. Each candidate will be asked the same set of questions to ensure a fair and equitable recruitment experience.

The interview team will be looking for you to provide specific examples by using the situation, task, action, and result, or "STAR" model:

Situation: Describes a specific event or situation.

Task: Describes what goal you were working toward.

Action: Describes specific actions or steps you took.

Result: Describes the outcome of your actions.

Assessments, presentations, portfolios and/or case studies may be requested during this stage as well (determined on a case-by-case basis).

Candidate experience is a priority for us - as such, we encourage candidates to come prepared with questions of their own for the team to ensure a two-way interview process.

Background and Reference Checks

ASCD partners with an external vendor partner to conduct our background and reference check process. Through our formal application process, you will be asked to complete a Disclosure and Authorization form granting ASCD permission to conduct criminal, education, and employment verifications. You will also be asked to provide names and the contact information of three professional references. Only if you are selected as a final candidate will HR contact you to begin the background and reference check process. This processing time typically takes three to five business days to complete. Offers are contingent upon a successful background and reference check process.

Employment Offer and Onboarding

Upon successful background and reference checks, a member of the HR team will contact you to determine a start date. You will receive a welcome message that will include your offer letter, employment information, and new-hire instructions.
