    Disorganized process compare to other universities. Met in the morning, required to do a job talk, teach a course, meet with leadership (as expected). The interview was very telling, in retrospect, as morning coffee was not complimentary (I paid).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UMass Boston (Boston, MA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    1 interview in front of a panel of 3, they scored my answers and stated they'd choose the person with the highest score essentially. So the more you knew about the position and academic policies, the better the score.

    Interview Questions

    • I had to name a lot of state and local benefits and outreach facilities, which if I hadn't done research on the university, I would not have come across that information.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR called and offered the job, asked me when I wanted to start. There wasn't much negotiating because it's a state school and the salary was posted on the ad.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UMass Boston.

    Hiring for this job was a simple, straight-forward process. I had been a graduate student at the university and I expressed my interest in teaching and, given my experience teaching while in my graduate program, was offered a position.
