    I worked at Colorado State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location, lots of new buildings going up, decent compensation for employees, easy access to supervisors and management, self-service human resource website, centrally located in the city, access to incredible seminars, talks, art, training

    Cons

    state budgets constrain opportunities for expanding workforce, compensation was just enough to live on, but thats about it, health benefits were pretty minimal but at least they were offered

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Colorado State University.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process at this university is very slow and formal. it involves a phone interview with the hiring committee who will ask a set list of 6-8 questions and at least one on-campus interview where you will be asked to present at an open forum where anyone across campus can ask questions. There is a tradition of favoring internal candidates, although talent is prioritized for the most part.
