Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UMUC (Adelphi, MD) in February 2013.

Interview

Phone interview was held for an hour. There were three academic directors involved. Main interviewer was MBA program director, others were HR director, and one more unknown director. They asked question one by one, and I have explained to them about my academic as well as company executive experiences. Main director offered me an adjunct faculty as a full professor considering my 11 years of university faculty experience, and I have accepted right away.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UMUC (Adelphi, MD) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through online system. I was initially interviewed informally over coffee by the program director to gauge my interest in the specific assignment she had in mind for me. (Course development for a new degree program.) I wasn't all that thrilled, initially, as I wanted to teach, When she explained that it was her practice to assign the course developer to teach the first section of the new course when implemented, I agreed. She then arranged for a formal telephonic interview with herself and another program director. The questions were typical academic interview questions and the interview was a much as them explaining the expectations of UMUC as it was about eliciting responses from me. The entire process was relatively pain free.

    Negotiation

    UMUC has a standardized pay schedule. However, with my years of experience and advanced degrees, I was able to negotiate appoint as an adjunct associate professor, rather than adunct assistant professor. This was not a very difficult negotiation, as the program director agreed with my assessment of my experience and education.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UMUC (Adelphi, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitting through the employment portal was frustrating and non-responsive. Had to physically print out application, visit a UMUC site and have local staff forward materials to the hiring manager before there was any forward movement. After that, the hiring process was easy, consisting of two interviews, a verbal offer, and a written offer within one week.
