Visiting Assistant Professor Interview

Visiting Assistant Professor
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at University of Cincinnati in March 2012.

Interview Details – It was a very quick phone interview. A faculty member called me and asked me to introduce myself based on my resume. Asked my teaching experience and some research questions, although they did not require it at all. Also asked me some behavior questions, and there was no surprise. The job offer was made the next week.

Architecture Co-Op Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at University of Cincinnati in March 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was very straight forward with my direct boss, in that I had to tell briefly my previous job experience. Then, I had the chance to talk a little about myself, and after 15 minutes, the interview was over. Later, I was introduced to the employees in the entire floor.

Interview Question – At the end of the interview I was asked how much I was expected to get paid. Although I was aware that at some point I was going to be asked the question (maybe a second interview of pre-selected candidates, or a phone call), I was surprised by the fact that my boss took his decision of hiring me, after a 10 min interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for more than they were expected to pay, although I knew I was asking more. Then, it was easier to negotiate the middle ground payment.

Difficult Interview

Assistant Professor Interview

Assistant Professor
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Cincinnati.

Interview Details – Applicants for tenure track are reviewed by committee. Top 5-7 applicants are then asked to conduct phone interviews. Phone interview determines an invite for personal interview with faculty, directors, dean, students roughly a week or two later. This visit and presentation is a critical factor. This is a stat run institution. There are many steps and things can move slower than expected.

Interview Question – How do you describe your teaching philosophy and how do you think it would fit in our program?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was minimal. Director makes a bid, and you counter that bid. Until you find a middle ground.
