    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at University of Tennessee (Knoxville, TN) in March 2010.

    Interview

    All contact with the University of Tennessee was very professional and kind. From the very start of the hiring process there were many steps that were clearly explained that needed to be followed throughout the hiring process. The initial interview was panel style. There was one hall director, one assistant hall director, and two current resident assistants. The questions were well thought out, and reasonable. I felt that the initial panel interview was fair.
