    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Missouri in September 2011.

    Interview

    Initial description of position in the interviews was very different than what the job and the co-worker situation actually turned out to be. After making an expensive and difficult move across the country for the job, I discovered in the first month the expectations were a moving target and unrealistic and that supervisors had no idea how to evaluate my type of work (research for businesses).

    Interview Questions

    • incompetent supervisors, vitriolic gatekeepers perpetuating groupthink among the management team, complete lack of trust and any real collaboration. Much like junior high.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    odd and hard to interpret. discovered later they had tried to hire someone else but couldn't agree on salary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Missouri (Columbia, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Began with a phone interview asking about general education/experience. About 3 days later I was invited to a formal interview. I met with the supervisor, administrative director of the department, department manager, and HR. I was given a tour and then got to meet some people in the group I would be working with. Very laid back, mostly talked about my experience and what made me right for the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Missouri (Columbia, MO).

    Interview

    I suspect that the primary reason that I got this interview was because of internal connections, though I had to pass through HR screening first so I was qualified for the position. I found the whole process fairly painless, actually. The people I interviewed with were kind and supportive throughout the process. Other than the usual case of nerves, I found that this interview prepared me well for the job and for future interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was out of the ordinary for the field and most questions were fairly general. The questions were essentially the same for the phone and on-campus interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not attempt to negotiate as the offer was given as final and am unsure whether this would ultimately have been an option.
