I applied online and interviewed at Arizona State University.

Interview Details – One phone interview, two face to face interviews. One with direct manager and other with direct manager and other staff members within the unit. It takes them a while to go through the process. Everyone I have spoken with talks about how long it takes for the interview process at the Arizona State University.

Interview Question – Didn't have a difficult question, just come prepared to talk about your experiences and how it can help the department you have applied for. Be prepared to give problem solving examples.   Answer Question

Academic Advisor Interview

Academic Advisor
Tempe, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Arizona State University in January 2008.

Interview Details – It is different for each department but it usually takes at least a month. The interview process is long and drags out because there's a ton of rules that they "have" to follow. When it comes down to it, if they want to hire you, they will find a way to make it happen-following the rules or not.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations allowed.

Instructional Technology Analyst Interview

Instructional Technology Analyst
Tempe, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Arizona State University in July 2010.

Interview Details – A very lengthy process; one may not hear back for an initial phone interview for two months, and after the phone interview the process still moves slowly. Interview committee was made up of university staff and professors, and the questions were more informal and behavioral than corporate and cut-and-dry. Phone interview generally consists of a conference call with 3 other individuals, representing interested parties in the position itself. As it is an educational institution, interviewees should be prepared to answer questions about their views on undergraduate education and the like.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time that you built something.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Salary range at the university level is fixed, and I was hired at the top end of the advertised salary range.
