    I worked at George Fox University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    George Fox is sincere about its purpose, and for the most part, faculty, staff and students are unified and joyful around its Christian mission. It's a wonderful fit for conservative evangelicals, though not all who attend or work at GFU are conservative.

    Cons

    George Fox is savvy about the sea change happening in higher education and has made some hard choices for long-term sustainability. Some interpret this as not being people-centric. I actually think these decisions are more student-centric - it is their tuition paying for positions that a healthy business model can't sustain.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at George Fox University in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was sent some documents about the university and the position prior to the interview, which was promising and gave me time to properly prepare. However, the interviews were disorganized and rarely focused on the position. The questions I prepared for were never asked, and the majority of the questions were related to my faith and Christianity in general.
