I worked at University of Kentucky full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
Great health insurance package, professional colleagues, constant development/projects going on around campus. Lot's of service opportunities available around town. Town is not too big or too busy, horse racing and college basketball are big deals.Cons
City gets crazy with students and town folks rampaging especially after the men's basketball games (win or lose :) ) during the NCAAB tournament. Steer clear of State Street and South Limestone on game nights.
Overall good place.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

All depends on the department. You need to take a couple of exams - especially the GRE, get evaluated by a selection committee who reviews both your GRE scores, transcripts from all previous schools attended and your resume.
If you pass this phase, you get selected for interviews - usually one-on-one with up to 8 different faculty, selected based on your statement of research interest you turned in during the application process.
