    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Boise State University.

    Interview

    The hiring process was four months long. Waited a month between the writing test and in-person interview. The in-person conversation went extremely well, followed up with thank you emails that were answered saying I would be notified when they made a decision.

    A month later, I received a press release with the new person's name at the bottom. Still waiting for my rejection email after three emails asking if the position was filled went unanswered. Extremely unprofessional and disrespectful.
