    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at California State University (Turlock, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview processes are fair. They pay candidates' travel expenses for interviews, including meals. Interviewees meets with a panel of department faculty, the dean, the provost and a group of students. I was asked about my past teaching experiences, research, service, and problematic situations. The dean was most interested in my research. The provost lectured more than interviewed, and I had to look for an opportunity to chime in and describe what I could contribute to the campus.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very brief. Told the salaries were fixed and not really negotiable. Ended up getting $2000 over the original offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at California State University (Fresno, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I meet with a councilor and went over a list of classes. Then I meet with a counselor about what classes I would need to make it to the finish. I meet with the department head and learned that the program was impacted and would take time to get through. I learned that there are current 250 kids waiting on 22 seats available. There is not much in the way of selection.
