    Interview Details

    I applied online and interviewed via phone. awful experience!!! They were in a rush. They called me 20 mins before the scheduled time because they finished another interview earlier?! I am overseas. don't know if that's the problem. I could hardly hear what they were saying. it was like they conducted the interview in a football stadium with all the noise around!

    Lecturer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deakin University in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process. They short listed the applicants and followed up with a phone interview. The interview was focused on skills and how you want to progress research. I got an offer within 30 days after the interview. It surprised me that I only had to do the phone interview. I was living overseas, so they may not have had the budget to fly people in. It tells me though that they are pretty skill driven, rather than behavioural driven

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was very predictable. No unexpected questions   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little room for negotiation. They have set levels of pay.
