    Interview

    Simple one on one interview. No stress, relaxed atmosphere. The process lasted about 45 minutes, with simple questions on work history and academic experiences. The process seemed fairly disjointed within the department, but generally the interview itself was well organized

    Interview

    Hiring process was long, need to put in the legwork to get all the documentation together. Most academic hires I've seen is usually a referral, a volunteer or internal promotion. Unless that person is completely unqualified, the interview is usually a formality.
