    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in August 2012.

    Interview

    There were three days of training, during which you learned the basics on the Rassias method. Then, on the third day, you had to pretend that your fellow competitors were your Spanish class, and you had to teach them according to this method. After about a ten-minute "pretend" Spanish class, you sat down and acted like a student for your fellow competitors. The whole process took no longer than one hour, and the professors typically took the full weekend to decide who they wanted to teach for them.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I originally applied online on October 5th. I received an email to schedule a phone interview in mid November. The phone interview was with a committee of 8 people. Four weeks after the phone interview I was emailed to schedule an in person interview/campus visit which took place in early January. The in person interviews began at 8:30am and went through dinner. They consisted of several panel interviews, a 1 on 1 with the hiring manager, and a 30 minute presentation followed by a 30 minute Q&A. Lunch and dinner were also with the search committee and the prospective department members. The week after my interviews they began a very comprehensive reference check, and required to speak with current and previous supervisor. I declined the current and was informed that my offer would be contingent on that conversation. The final step was a conversation with HR where they asked my current and desired salary, and confirmed details for my background check. I got an offer 16 days after my campus visit.

    Reasons for Declining

    a combination of factors but mainly that I received a promotion in my current job and was offered the ability to work remotely, flexibility that would not have been possible at Dartmouth.
