Interview Details – After finding out the position on a job listings website, I applied online. It was a relatively easy process, which I uploaded both my cover letter and resume. A month later, I received an email asking if I was still interested in the position but was reminded of the salary and how they would not offered relocation assistance (which I already knew/assumed). Once I accepted that fact, I was invited for a 15 minute phone interview, where I asked questions by a committee about student development, event planning, and diversity. It was really quick! The following week, I was invited for an on campus interview. I met with a variety of people, staff and students as well as individually and in groups. Although I was not offered the job, it ultimately took them a month to let me know that decision. It's a very homogenous campus, and I felt out of place as a person of color interviewing. Sometimes I felt was only brought to campus for that fact.

Interview Details – The hiring porcess is a word is LONG (for a state employee position) Please be prepared and/or understand that getting hired with any state organization is both time consuming and takes quite a bit of patience. Filling out app took about 4-6 hours and I needed to include my resume AND copies of my transcript to prove education. I also needed to enter my reference info (be sure that you note it down as your refs that you email should match those that you submittted). Then it took 6-8 weeks to get the initial phone call after the app was submitted, another 2-3 weeks to get the interview and then a few more weeks to get an offer. All in all 3-4 months from start to finish. Having hired a few people in that state system in my tenure there, that timeline is pretty accurate. One phone, one panel (3-5 people from different units in the dept which took about 2-2.5 hrs), ref. check, negotiations with managers, offer, etc. Work culture is live it, breathe it, do it and if you're part of management, there's not a lot of work life balance. People are friendly and nice but work is key.
Interview Question – How familiar are you with the benefit plans or what we offer? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate some in the salary area. Understand that since it's such a large institution, there's not a lot of room for vacation, salary range and benefit negotiation as a state employee since that has been determined by the state already. Be ready to negotiate with facts and not feelings since fact based is more respected by senior management.

Interview Details – The screening and interview rpcess was very time consuming. The first step consited of a multiple choice questionaire. I was told that this step narrowed the filed of applicants to about 30-50
Two weeks later I was required to wrtie an essay responding to five specific topics relative to project management theory, budget control & cost management, interpersonal and departmental communication, staff managment, and construction mangement. This narrowed the field to about a dozen.
The final step that I participated in was group/panel interview that consisted of verbal situational problem solving / what if type scenario role playing. The top three emerging from that process were the granted an interview with the actual department supervisor. I was not in the top three and feel that I made the error in answering the questions by actually providing real solutions to the problems presented. In retro spect, I believe they were looking for a more bureaucratic supervisory delegation or pass the buck type of answer.
