    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Villanova University.

    Interview Details

    After applying several times over the course of about two years (Note: I exceed the experience & education requirements) I was eventually contacted by telephone and offered the opportunity to come in for an interview. Before the interview you are required to sign a nondisclosure agreement regarding the interview process/questions; I guess they do not want people to know about their impractical hiring process. The interview process consisted strictly of about 6-8 situational questions with a panel of 3-4 supervisors. The questions were ridiculous and slightly unrelated to the position. I have had many interviews in the past but never one like this. I was not asked any normal interview questions. All in all, the interview lasted ten minutes at best, and upon conclusion I was not given the opportunity to ask any questions. I was told that I would be contacted with a decision within two weeks good or bad. However, I did not hear back from Villanova until about two months later via email.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Villanova University in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was good. Campus interview was pleasant with some faculty members and unpleasant, almost aggressive, with others.

    It does not matter if a department wants to hire you. Unlike most universities, the final decision is up to the dean and the department has to accept that decision.

    Communication of the final decision about hiring was quite unprofessional - a one line e-mail message from the Human Resources Center-
