    Student Affairs Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Catholic University.

    Interview Details

    2 part interview process-- First was a phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. I was then called for an on-campus interview which lasted two hours. The first part of the interview was about 45 minutes with the director followed by a panel interview.
    The interview questions were well thought questions. Not a canned interview approach. Each person had thoroughly read my resume and cover letter and posed relevant questions.
     Following the interview all of my references were checked and then I was offered the job about 7-10 days later.
    HR called with the job offer and salary offer (not the director/manager) which was unusual. HR was totally unwilling to negotiate on salary or benefit package at all. Experience with HR was negative.
    The entire process took about 2+ months.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was way lower than comparable positions at comparable institutions. It was also too low for the cost of living in the DC area. Further, HR was unwilling to negotiate in the slightest-- something that I've never encountered before in any previous job. If the salary had been adequate, then I probably would not have needed to negotiate.
