    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at University of Virginia in August 2014.

    Interview

    Got an email two days later after I sent my resume to come in for interview. She sent me a job description via email and I interviewed the following week.

    She did not tell me it would be a panel interview with a hr rep, my would be supervisor, and one of the medical office coordinators. They didn't even know who should ask which question nor did they know if any of the doctors would come in for the interview, yet they are supposed to manage their schedules. A hot mess. I think I dodged a bullet working for this department.

    I followed up with them for a status update and was told I wasn't selected. I got an offer somewhere else anyway.

    They said they ask these interview questions to each candidate but they were reading from their interview paper hard core. They were also taking lots of notes. Two out of three of them weren't properly dressed for an interview. One wearing a t-shirt and another one wearing a t-shirt and maxi skirt. The one wearing the t-shirt gave me eye contact that was really intense each time I answered a question and it scared me a little bit.

    The interviewers need to know how to interview properly. What a waste of time going to this interview.

    I had a phone interview with them. The HR people were terrific. Over 139 people applied for the job so the competition was tough. The school has a great reputation and the city of Charlottesville is a great place to live. The University has a great salary range and good benefits as well.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at University of Virginia.

    Interview

    Required online application, phone interview, one-on-one interview with Human Resources and then interview with head of department. The people were very friendly and approachable, which made me initially work for the company. There was a woman in HR named Janet who was super nice and if I worked under her I think I would have had a different experience.
