    I have been working at University of the Pacific full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pacific is rewarding because of the commitment to our students, whether you are faculty and staff. Everyone knows the students are the priority, and that makes it a rewarding place to work.

    Cons

    The goals seem to change year to year and we have too many priorities. We lack administrative or strategic focus. Resources are thin, which makes it hard to compete with other universities.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at University of the Pacific in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Apply via the University's job site on main page (www.pacific.edu). Most jobs are reviewed by a committee who will then call applicant for an interview. Not required that applicants are notified that they will not be called in.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Know what you are worth prior to going in and also get a feel for what they can pay you at starting (range is okay). Pay raises occur but are always small (2-4% range), so try and start at as high of a salary as you can. If the job only pays in th 40-60K range and you feel you are already at 60K, I probably wouldn't even bother applying. The job probably wouldn't challenge you anyhow.
