    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Alabama in Huntsville in February 2007.

    Interview

    After finding the job opening posted on the University website, I mailed a cover letter and resume to the contact person with a date that I would call. I called on the mentioned date with a carefully scripted introduction. I was scheduled to come in and speak to management within the week. After insuring that I had the credentials the position needed, more than one manager interviewed me, and I was told I had the job as soon as the paperwork was finished. The total interview time was about 1.5 hours. After about a month of waiting, I called and asked about progress. The process was begun. About 3 weeks later I called and was told I could start. Advice: If you apply for a job for which you are well-qualified, and if there isn't much competition, your odds are high at getting the job. Perceptions: University work is more advanced and less repetitive than other jobs. Most people are professional, though some tend to withold information to maintain an edge. Politics are similar to other workplaces. The people are usually easy to work with, though I tend to get along with most anyone and am not particularly competitive or ambitious. Managment and scheduling is more flexible than most. The facilities are average to below average and custodians are subpar. I have a 10 x 12 office with a tall ceiling and large windows, view of trees and parking lot, 4 doors from the boss.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or trick questions. I was asked about previous job experience.   1 Answer
    • I was asked to verify my number of years of experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I think I was lucky, and negotiation was very easy and pleasant. I was able to negotiate a very fair salary for my skills. I was well qualified and educated for the position, and I knew the range offered. I was asked to pick the point in the range that I needed to do the job. I picked in the middle, not to be too greedy. It was given to me without hesitation. I was pleasesd with the salary, though I received a raise within 3 months of beginning the job.
