    Visiting Assistant Professor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The position was a short -term, one semester. The Department chair contacted my school and inquired if there were available candidates to take the position. Given my background, I was the logical choice. The school and the department were extremely gracious and hospitable. it was the best interview that I have had before or since in its polite and yet thorough vetting process. I would recommend this school as a place to teach.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were standard: research interest, dissertation topics, ideas re teaching.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to get a good salary with full benefits.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I was referred to the department through a colleague at another university. I contacted the department head and was asked to come in for an interview later that week. Questions based on my teaching experience, style, and philosophy were asked. My availability was also gone over during the interview. It was a very comfortable, fairly informal, experience as the department head lead the interview more as a conversation with questions and answers versus an interrogation.

    Assistant to the Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in november or early december, didn't hear back until february. They sent me an email to pick an in-person interview time slot, but it snowed, so I then was emailed to choose either a phone or skype interview. I choose the phone interview. Not sure if this was the best idea or not. It seemed like the in-person interview would have had a skill test, and they probably would have been more interested in asking me questions. The interviewer pretty much only asked me if I had any questions, so I barely had a chance to sell myself. I haven't heard back yet, but I have a feeling I won't be getting an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Very friendly and straight forward. More of a conversation than an interview. They want to know the personality of the candidate more than just picking apart a resume.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT).

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely lengthy. 6 weeks after applying online, I received an email from hiring manager asking to set up a phone interview. One week after phone interview, I was invited up to Quinnipiac for face to face interview, tour of campus, and to present on a relevant issue. 5 weeks after in-person interview, I received email that I did not receive job. The interview process would have been ok had it ended there, but I am STILL (2 months after interview) waiting for reimbursement of expenses related to in-person interview. I continue to interact with the hiring manager and administrative assistant to follow up on where the check is...a bit awkward. Note to any out-of-towners applying to Quinnipiac: If they offer to cover expenses related to getting to interview, be prepared to wait several months before receiving reimbursement. I'm just glad I chose the $500 1-stop flight vs the $1400 non-stop flight! Who knows if I'll ever get my money...
