Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at George Mason University in April 2013.
Interview Details – Very simple--if you have the education and the desire, it's likely that George Mason University will hire you. Make sure that you are ready for teaching a lo of students as you're likely to be thrown a 100-level course unless you have some major expertise.
Interview Question – Your teaching philosophy. A lot of schools still use this outdated protocol. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable.
I applied online - interviewed at George Mason University in February 2014.
Interview Details – I have had two experiences applying for two different positions with GMU, and neither in my opinion have been very professional. The first position was posted on my graduate program's listserv, and I responded directly to the hiring individual whose e-mail was provided on the posting about a question I had regarding the position. He answered my question so I then submitted my materials directly to the individual per his request. I received no confirmation of receipt. I followed up a week later and still no response. I eventually just gave up and decided the person had hired someone else.
Second position I applied for, I applied online through the online system and went in for an in-person interview (panel). After the interview, they told me that they would be in touch after in a few weeks. I realized I didn't get the position after following up with them after the interview and receiving no response, not even a "we've extended the offer to someone else e-mail". I eventually found that the offer was extended to someone else after I went on LinkedIn and saw someone's profile with that title. According to the online application system, however, my application is still "in process," which still puzzles me.
Interview Question – Why specifically do you want to work at George Mason? I mentioned my reasons on my cover letter and even during the "chit chat" time before the interview so the question kind of stumped me because it was repetitive. Answer Question

Interviewed at George Mason University
Interview Details – There are always two steps: The phone interview and the in-person interview. The most difficult part is that usually the in-person interview requires a presentation, even for some entry-level positions.
Each department varies in the amount of time it takes to go through the process, but there isn't a ton of red-tape, so it can go very quickly.
Interview Question – GMU lives by it's stated values, so stick to those. Also, you're going to want to practice for the presentation--I've seen too many top candidate bomb it and not get an offer. Answer Question
