    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA).

    Interview

    It was great. They are curious about what you do on campus, and want to see your personality. If you do something unique on campus, that's great. The process is pretty simple. You talk to two people, and they are usually really nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back within two weeks. First one of the faculty called me for an interview and was extremely friendly and was a very casual interview about my CV. Then, I received an e-mail that they wanted to interview me. They paid for my flight and hotel, and I met with most of the faculty and staff I would be working with. The interview was very relaxed and asked basic questions and it was more geared towards what my jobs and responsibilities were. I got along with everyone and they were very cordial. Overall, an excellent interview process. I received a call a few days later saying I got the job

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    There were a lot of applicants for this position. Apparently, students of Dickinson College enjoy working as an Orientation Assistant it seems. However, I am glad that I did not receive this position as it would conflict my vacation plans as well. The interview questions were not that difficult. Mostly behavioral questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Faculty apply to a Department in which they are qualified to teach. If the hiring committee like your application and you bring the expertise required at the time, a small group call you on the phone. If you do well on the phone you may be one of the 3 or 5 invited on campus for a day or two of interviews. Generally, you meet with faculty, administrators and students majoring in your area of expertise. You also "teach" a class so that the hiring committee can get a sense for your teaching style and command of the subject area.

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation for a Visiting professor job; was able to add some money for the move.
