    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Portland State University (Portland, OR) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I sat in front of four coordinators and they rapid fired questions of my customer service experience. It lasted 10 minutes at the most. Overall, I would say that it gives the interviewers a good idea of how you can handle yourself under pressure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Portland State University (Portland, OR) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Submitted my application, received an invitation about two weeks later. I went interviewed with a panel of about five to six people. I received an offer about a month afterwards. This was a pretty straightforward process that didn't vary much from my previous experience. Have examples of overcoming adversity ready, as they will probably ask you to give a couple of examples.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how interested I was with furthering my education, as the educational benefits are pretty good at PSU.   Answer Question

    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Portland State University (Portland, OR) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward as I had previously been a Teaching Assistant and was a known quantity. They preferred to hire previous TAs over most other part-time applicants. I did have the implicit support of the Department Chair (who was ostensibly the manager for the position) and of the Calculus Coordinator, who developed, maintained, and guided the calculus curriculum and the teaching thereof for the department.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The compensation is set by the university.
