I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colorado Mesa University (Grand Junction, CO) in August 2014.
The entire interview felt pretty casual. There wasn't a lot of pressure. My two future managers interviewed me. They had a worksheet of questions and it felt like a conversation for the most part.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colorado Mesa University (Grand Junction, CO) in March 2011.
Interview with faculty, chair, V.P., and President. Classroom teaching demo required which creates a bit of pressure, but also allows you to show your best strengths in a classroom. Campus tour and free meals. Hotel and transportation paid for, but difficult to coordinate if you are teaching at another institution.
- This is a "teaching institution". How will you maintain an active research portfolio given the level of financial support provided for research by the institution? 1 Answer
Difficult because they are paying low compared to other institutions and seem interested in continuing the trend. Negotiation procedures were not clearly defined so it was difficult to understand who to talk to for negotiation.
