I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at University of Miami (Miami, FL) in February 2015.
Applied online for Assistant Development Director with the College of Arts and Sciences. I had a phone interview and it went really well. I am an out of state applicant and therefore I was told that I would probably receive a second interview via Skype. I sent follow up communication and never received any kind of reply. Never was told if the position had been filled or anything. I don't expect communication in general. However, after you interview, I do feel that a follow up email through HR should be sent to tell you that you are no longer in consideration. I had the direct email of the department director and she never bothered to reply. I was really surprised too because it seemed that we had a lot of things in common and it was a great phone conversation.

After a month and a half, I received a phone call concerning a position that I had applied for to manage facilities at the Miller campus. After completing the phone interview, which was fairly simple, I was told to wait for a follow-up interview. At this point, I am still awaiting that follow-up.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at University of Miami (Miami, FL) in September 2013.
Unlike many academic employers, this opening had a very straight forward and apolitical tone. The managers knew exactly what they were looking for and had a sense of expediency and immediacy. The employment process for this position was designed to fulfill a well defined need within a reasonable timeframe. If the employment experience is as good as the interview setting this is a very good place to work.
- There really were no difficult or unexpected questions. The interviewers were not playing mind games. They were straight forward "give me the facts, reasons and results" oriented. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at University of Miami (Miami, FL) in March 2012.
Applied online and waiting for interview. Initial interview with division manager to select the best candidate from the pool of applications to the final interview with the chairman of the division. Unfortunately, the position was freezed given the financial situation the university is in.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at University of Miami in August 2011.
Was contacted directly by the Hiring Manager for an interview the following day. The next day I waited for about 15 minutes to be called in. The receptionist was extremely personable and friendly. After I was called in and given a brief introduction to the panel, the interview basically consisted of me talking about my experience. I believe I asked more questions than the panel.
Afterward, the Hiring Manager said they would get back to me within approximately a week. I heard nothing back until I made a follow-up call two weeks after the initial interview. The response was not a phone call, but in an e-mail stating that the "position has been filled".
Although I did not have a Master's at the time (i.e. a preferred qualification), I was more than qualified for the position based on my background. It seems if one doesn't possess the minimum "preferred" qualifications you will not get the position.
