    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Southern Illinois University in January 2010.

    Standard university paper application process, phone interview, on-campus interview. Met Dean, Chair, faculty, and current students.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I was willing to have lunch regularly with the other faculty.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Annoying. I refused to accept the position until I received a salary offer. This seemed to be a baffling request for the college administrators. Finally, the Dean came up with a dollar amount. Took about two weeks. I know the other faculty had a negative view of me at first because of that; who knows how the reason for the delay was conveyed to them? But who takes a job w/o finding out what the pay offer is?!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Southern Illinois University in February 2007.

    Interview Details

    Pros
    Great pay and benefits.
    Cons
    Long hours, DM's are hired straight out of college and not promoted from within. This made for some really unprepared Dm's.
    Advice to Senior Management
    Hire from within and listen to your store managers. Don't treat your store managers like children. A degree does not qualify you to be a DM and hiring them so young is leaving your company open to potential lawsuits.
