I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ferris State University.
Phone interview initially, then an in-person interview. Each interview took at least 30 minutes and general interview questions were asked, such as strengths, weaknesses, why you want this job, etc. I was satisfied with the interview process. I wish the university was quicker in making decisions and would not make the process longer than it needed to be.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ferris State University in February 2013.
Committee interview, parading in different groups every 30 minutes with the standard battery of questions such as what are your strengths, how do you handle difficult people, yawn. The worst part is I'm a vegetarian and no one had the sensitivity to ask what I would like for lunch. A sad tray of sandwiches was plunked down in front of me, all meat. When I said I was fine and didn't need lunch, one of the committee members put a bloody red roast beef sandwich on a plate in front of me and said "Don't be shy, you can eat!". It took everything I had not to throw up, I picked at the bread and cheese. Horrible!
- Among the worst interview questions has to be "What do you know about me?" I did my research and answered the question well however the interviewer basically was seeking praise and self edification. Second worst "Why should we hire you?" Probably one of the most painful interview experiences of my life. Answer Question
