Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UC Irvine (Irvine, CA) in November 2008.

Interview

Called exec director, gave elevator speech, invited in for first interview. Had 2nd interview with soon to be colleagues, then third interview was presentation. First interview, just listened to exec director go on and on and on about his philosophy - kinda zoned out b/c he just kept going. Second interview - talked to a potential colleague - really didn't care for her, but liked position so continued (should have gone with gut on this one) - not very probing in questions - not much of an interviewer. Final interview met rest of team - they asked a couple of "what if" questions - again not taxing and I presented for them. Presentation was fun and they liked it.
Biggest caution to potential candidates is current regime - just be careful b/c more than any place I've ever been, one on the team definitely favors certain members. On the good side though, leadership is pretty old and won't be there much longer so you may want to wait until a new group takes over before you apply.

Interview Questions

  • You must perform a 20 minute presentation on the field of marketing and where the opportunities are for MBA students   1 Answer

Negotiation

Really no negotiation. Offered position at top of range - everyone got the same - no movement in salary. One thing to note: although your title will be Associate Director, you actually have and "admin" salary range, you are not in the Associate Director category at all. That said, the Merage school actually pays better than the rest of the university, so you do pretty well, for a university.
