    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted my online application and did not hear back from 4+ weeks. I received an email asking for a phone interview, which I completed. Shortly after, I was asked in for an office interview. Once this was completed, I received an offer within 10 days. The hiring process is long, however- it was several months before I began the position.

    • I was not asked very many question during the interview, it was mostly them explaining the position to me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate, which surprised me. I had heard that UNC Chapel Hill SPA staff positions are not negotiable, but I took a chance and asked for a little more money than the initial offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    No phone interview (unusual for most jobs here). In person interview with the three person hiring committee. Second interview was with a selection of members from the whole IT Department.
    The first set of questions were very specific and focused on how I would handle certain situations in this role. The second interview were more laid back questions and focused more broadly on how I would work with the department and what I would like to improve.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill in January 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online. Arrive early because parking can be an issue. Initial in-person interview was with 3 people- the team leads and their manager. Second in- person interview was with 10 team members. All were welcoming, informative, and professional. During both, interviewers took turns asking scripted questions. Be prepared- their questions cover a wide range and are behavioral event interview style questions. They all allowed me to ask questions and answered them openly.
