    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied for the sysadmin position and about a week later got called to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was typical in introducing myself and a basic gauge of my technical skills with the search committee. The committee consisted of staff within IT and other staff of the departments that I would be supporting. A week later I was asked to interview. The interview process was about 7 hours long meeting with multiple IT departments and groups within the departments I would be supporting. A tour of campus along with breakfast and lunch was provided.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no technical test. They asked lots of questions based on situations and "what-would-you-do"s. Every now and then a technical question was thrown in especially from the other server and sys admins - ex. how would you go about editing policy in AD.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Compensation was higher than what I expected, so I had no complaints.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Nevada, Reno.

    Interview

    The hiring process for an administrative faculty position is very stringent. The first phase of the interview is a phone interview, where a panel of interviewers will contact you and ask some typical interview questions (i.e. what is your experience, how do you think it relates, what are your accomplishments, etc.). If you make it through the phone interview, the second phase includes giving a presentation regarding the specific job duties to the interview panel and staff/faculty interested in attending. After the presentation you will then go through a panel interview similar to the phone interview, with the questions being a bit more in depth (i.e. what do you think it will take to successfully implement [job function], etc.). The second phase will generally be wrapped up with individual interviews with your potential supervisors, who will explain the reporting structures and job role. The is a very thorough process and typically takes a full day.

    Interview Questions

    • What single project or task do you consider to be your most successful career accomplishment?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was simple as they came in with an offer near the top of the established pay range, much higher than I anticipated.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Nevada, Reno (Reno, NV) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Initial contact was by phone 2-3 weeks after completing the online application. The hiring manager didn't ask me any questions but invited me for an in person interview. I interviewed with the library manager who seemed tired but cordial. She asked some questions about my resume, some basic interview questions and took me on a tour. She didn't seem very interested in my experience- just kind of going through the motions. I wasn't too hopeful when I left- I did receive a nice "Thanks, but No Thanks" letter in the mail about 2 weeks later.
