    wasn't considered for the position after doing it without the title for 2 years. Was then asked to be part of the interview process since I knew exactly what was needed. Finally after choosing someone they wanted me to train the new hire.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    There was no interview process, really. I applied and the professor took me because I did great on the subjects at my first year. Some subjects may need PhD students who might need interview. As long as you show that you are good at communication and have a good understanding about the subject, I think you will be fine.

    Instructional Design Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Drexel University in June 2016.

    Interview

    First, the HR rep sent out a mass email to "undisclosed recipients" asking for a time for a phone interview. Before I had a chance to respond, the HR rep called me asking for a time. I said, "Any time after noon" and she replied, "So how does 10:00 am sound?" I had to accept because I was desperate for a job.

    So, the next morning, she calls. It was one rapid fire question after another! It was horrible!

    A notable conversation: She asked about my salary range, and I asked her what the position paid. She said that she didn't know, the position was just opened and this specific question is to weed people out. I replied that I didn't want to price myself out of a job, and she told me that my application would go to the bottom of the pile for not answering the question.

    And after a few more rapid fire and invasive questions, I stopped the phone screen and said I was no longer interested.

    I wasn't able to negotiate since posdoctoral salaries are fixed. I was able to secure reimbursement for the majority of our relocation expenses.
