Food Supervisor I Interview

Denton, TX

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of North Texas.

Interview Details – I was hired internally so I was just pulled from work at an acceptable time. I was interviewed by the managers first, then director, the the executive. When speaking to executive, always have an answer for every question and stick to your guns when have an opinion. They can bully you a bit but if you don't agree, just disagree. They REALLY like people with confidence.

Interview Question – Why would you want to be in hospitality?   View Answer

Assistant Director Interview

Assistant Director
Denton, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at University of North Texas in July 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process is typical for application for a staff position at a University in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. You can submit resume, cover letter, and references to the university's human resources website. From there you have no real information about the hiring managers and you basically wait and hope they call--sometimes they don't.

The interviews were decent, however. I received a phone interview in which I was asked a number of seemingly preliminary questions. I gathered it was more to check for things like, phone voice, etc.

The in-person interview was much more in-depth. I was asked questions about my fundraising philosophies and my professional experience.

Interview Question – I don't think any of the questions were particularly difficult, however, the most unexpected was "What do you think should be the goal of the Annual Fund; to increase dollars or increase donors?"   Answer Question

Student Services Coordinator Interview

Student Services Coordinator
Denton, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at University of North Texas.

Interview Details – Pretty straight forward and predictable.
1st Interview - Was a panel phone interview. 4-6 people asking general questions, mixed traditional, hypothetical and behavioral.

2nd Interview - Presentation to the office on a relevant topic to their mission. The presentation was followed by a LARGE panel interview with 10-12 participants. It was pretty enjoyable for me. Again, a mix of traditional, hypothetical and behavioral questions. Following the panel was a one on one "conversational" interview with dept. directors.

The entire process was not quick, but not unnecessarily long either. Currently, time to fill at UNT seems to be much longer.

Interview Question – None. I researched the dept. and had relevant work experience. The questions were all questions most professionals have been asked before. Nothing bad, but nothing innovative either.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It is a state job, so it pays what it pays. I tried for a little more knowing the climate, but only because I have always been conditioned to push for a little more to try and add value to my "brand" in the eyes of the employer.

NOTE: I have seen job offers rescinded while working there over people trying to negotiate too strongly.
