    Area Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Savannah, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Troy University (Savannah, GA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I met for one hour with the District Director and Area Coordinator from another location for a sit down Q & A. I was one of two additional persons being interviewed at the Savannah Site on the same day. The interview was very relaxed and semi-informal. The interviews held or had held similar positions to the one for which I was applying, therefore, they were very knowledgeable about the position, the area and the general expectations. Salary was not negotiable although a salary range had been advertised.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very standard.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The salary was non negotiable, although a salary range had been given. There was no moving allowance, and no incentives attached to job performance. The only thing that was negotiable was my starting date.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dothan, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Troy University (Dothan, AL) in June 2009.

    Interview

    To transfer from one division to another, the interview process was simple, involving a panel by phone. All movement across divisional boundaries requires a background check as well these days. When I had first interviewed, as an outsider, I first submitted my CV and college transcripts, then gave a presentation to the faculty (conference-styled). I gave another presentation to administrative leadership in Troy, and then I waited for the acceptance letter. There is a lot of informality to the process with TROY, and most people in the decision-making chain like to talk casually about various topics. Building trust this way is therefore very important. If you come across too serious (ivory-tower), that can turn them off.

    • What is your remedy for grade inflation?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    TROY's starting pay is still market-lagging, but the university is trying hard to increase it more quickly than the natural rate, to catch up with peers. TROY has an advantage compared to most state-affiliated institutions in that recessions don't hit very hard, because TROY's worldwide operation provides a steadier revenue flow than Auburn or U of Alabama, for example. The new dean of the business school will approve a reduced load in exchange for a commitment to do research, so in that respect TROY's business school is on a par with those of Auburn and U of Alabama.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Troy, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Troy University (Troy, AL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I applied and finally heard back 6+ months after my application was submitted. Phone interviewed with search committee composed of current faculty. That was great. I could tell they were going to be a great team of colleagues. Was invited to campus interview. Met with department chair (clueless), associate dean (nice), vice chancellor (condescending), chancellor (nice), and interim dean (rushed). Offer was made pretty quickly after the campus interview (turns out that if you are brought in you pretty much have the job unless one of the above doesn't like you for some reason). The quick offer at that point was probably because the fall semester was starting very soon so they needed to fill the position immediately.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Troy University.

    Interview

    The overall interview experience was generally positive. The camaraderie amongst the faculty was very apparent and the campus was beautiful. However, I was asked several person questions like whether or not I have kids and if I am religious or not. I was told that I would have been offered the position, but due to "budget constraints" the position was rescinded. What a let down.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Troy University (Troy, AL).

    Interview

    The application process was a little tedious. I had submitted 20+ applications over a 5 year period and was never selected for an interview. Finally at the job I was hired for I saw the position around September. I applied for the job, several months later (November) I was called to schedule an interview for a few weeks later. I interviewed and a week later offered the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Troy University (Troy, AL) in October 2015.

    The interview process was rather cliche. You will be interviewed by 2-3 people at once being questioned by each. Questions range from, "Why did you apply for this job?" to "Where will you see yourself in 5 years?".
