    Associate Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Florida International University (Miami, FL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and sent my resume to the head of the department at the school. I received a call to schedule an interview about 2.5 weeks after applying. I was told to be there on a certain day at a certain time. It was clearly not flexible at all but luckily it worked out. They kindly emailed me all applicable information regarding location, parking and names and title of the person who I would be meeting with. I found out a couple days beforehand that it was a panel interview with 3 executives. They gave me their names and titles. The interview was very standard with them telling me about the position and asking me questions. I got an email about a week later for a second interview. Again, the time was given to me, not flexible. They again provided the names and titles of those who I would be meeting with. In this one, they put a lot of pressure on me. It wasn't hard but it did scare me about the job quite a bit. About a week later, I got a call with a verbal offer. The written offer did not come until over a week later and it was a very general offer letter they basically just change the name, title and salary on and give out to everyone.

    Negotiation

    I tried, but there's no negotiating. It's a state job and salaries and benefits are set. You have to go to the website and find the benefits yourself. Even so, there's missing info. There were at least 6 different individuals involved in the on-boarding process so it was pretty confusing and I never knew who to contact about what but it wasn't unmanageable. Everything was properly communicated except for the benefits, which I had to determine myself by searching through thousands of HR documents on the website. Then, I had to confirm whether they were included in the position or not and get the info that I couldn't find. It took a lot of time and there are so many benefit options that it was not clear from searching alone.

    Interview

    Quick interview about overall skills in the office. Questions dwelled on the ability to handle office software and customer accounts database. Overall, it was a very straight forward interview. This was for an office job at the Department of Parking and Transportation.

    Adjunct Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    No real interview if you are a student in the department you are going to teach in as they already know you, your strengths, weaknesses, how you would act in specific situations etc. So, the hiring and interview process, if you can call it that is fairly simple.

    Worst experience ever! Expected to be slaved, overworked and underpaid. No recognition for anything done, petty office drama, only good thing were my coworkers at my level. I don't not recommend working here.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Florida International University (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    I applied in May, had a telephone interview in June, then an in person interview in July and a third interview in August. The process was unnecessarily long. One of the interviewers told me they were in a rush to hire someone but in between each step I had to wait 2 weeks to hear back and then scheduled the interview for 2-3 weeks later. I felt I did great and the interviewers liked me but in the end I didn't get the position. I had to basically harass the HR rep every week after the final interview and when I finally got an answer she was very cold and didn't give any feed back when asked. Since then I have interviewed for another position which has gone much faster and smoother but I have not heard back yet.
