    I worked at University of Hawai'i (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hawaii state is a great place to work. Both environment and people are very nice there. You will find yourself fitting in easily.

    Cons

    The pace is kind of slow. I think it may be a good point to some people. Since it is distanced from the mainland, it would be hard to participate in activities (e.g. conference) out of the state.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at University of Hawai'i (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    Skype interview with Principal Investigator. She called me on skype and asked me a number of questions regarding why I wanted the position and told me about her research interests. Things went down hill for me when she started asking about the ring she could see on my finger, my marriage status, and what my husband would be doing. It didn't come off like friendly chit-chat, but rather that I was being evaluated based on my marriage status (marriage=bad). I was highly qualified for this position, and I'm certain that she didn't call me back because of my marriage status. Which is deplorable, but I was turned off that she would even ask me that so I was fine to not be considered further.

    Interview Questions

    • I see you have a ring, are you married? What is your husband going to do if you get this job (we would be relocating to Hawaii)?   1 Answer
