    Pros

    PLU is a great place to work, vacation and benefits are generous. Great colleagues who care about the students and the university mission.

    Cons

    New president and leadership along with low enrollment mean a lot is changing at the moment. Also, pay is often less than in comparable positions

    Advice to Management

    Continue finding ways to adhere to cost of living salary increases

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Pacific Lutheran University.

    Interview

    I was hired for a Visiting Assistant Professor position after interviewing with eight other applicants. After submitting my application and references, I was asked to do a Skype interview with the department faculty. Following this, I was asked to come out for a two day in-person interview during which I met with additional PLU faculty and administration. I was notified at the end of the second day that they wanted to informally offer me the position. A formal offer arrived later the next week.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me my opinion on several highly-debated questions specific to my field that were difficult for me to answer in-the-moment.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated on an extra stipend for moving costs, but my request for a (small) increase in my base pay was denied.
