    Negotiate your pay. They have a flexible range. Way easier to ask for higher pay to start now than it is to ask for raises later.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at University of Florida in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview which lasted one and a half hours. The interviewer informed me that he would contact in a week either for another interview or to begin the job. He never did contact me and I attempt several times through both phone calls and email to reach him. I once spoke with a colleague of his and this man informed me that the hiring person was in a meeting with the board of directors about the job. I never heard back again from the University of Florida Engineering Department IT staff.

    BIM Expert Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gainesville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at University of Florida in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this part time position in the mid March, by the time I got a call for an interview in late May I had forgotten I'd even applied. This is to say the hiring process is long and drawn out. I came in for the interview and since this was a program specific job they asked me a few questions about using Revit. I brought my portfolio and work samples on my on fruition which is what got me the job. They waited another week before calling to confirm I got the job. It was another 2 weeks before I was in the system and approved to start work.

    All in all, it was a very drawn out process and even more so because it was just part time.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked what I thought were some limitations in the Revit software   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    When I came in for paperwork, they told me that with my experience they could pay me $15 an hour. For a part time job on campus as I was in school, this is about as good as you can get.
