    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Governors State University (Chicago, IL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    My interview seemed easy because I had met most of the team at a conference a few months earlier. There were 3 senior faculty in the room with a list of standard questions. I was surprised that I did not have to do a teaching demonstration, but occasionally this is required now.

    Interview Questions

    • None of them were hard. Mostly they discussed my prior teaching experience and teaching interests because I had not taught before. I was hired ABD which is a big trend in our division.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Difficult because I was new. I looked up the range, and asked for a few thousand higher than the top range.

    Benefits Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Governors State University (Park Forest, IL) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview and testing. Everyone was nice enough and I’m sure it would’ve been a great position. I am not upset I didn’t get the job, I am upset that they failed to respond to emails regarding my application status or to even notify me that I was not selected. I am fine with rejection but not “ghosting” by a company. For that I deem them unprofessional. Just tell someone they don’t have the job. I only found out because I checked their online portal. I have worked in HR for years and anyone who comes in face to face to interview gets a call/email either way. Do better! I won’t be applying in the future and I don’t want to work for a company that treats professionals this way.
