    Position In Vice Provost's Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Alabama at Birmingham (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Lots of lag time between initial interview and in person interview - lasted all day - seemed to go well - then crickets. No contact made to tell me I wasn't getting the job. Terribly unprofessional. Also shared unflattering info about other candidates so I'm sure they did the same with others about me. Spoke negatively about University of Alabama proper. I expected more from academics. No reimbursement for travel to interview. Extremely negative experience.
