    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed in response to my resume and asked to interview. I interviewed once with a panel of 4 or 5 people and then was asked to come back in for a follow up interview, which was actually more of a meet and greet with upper management than a formal interview.
    I've also been a part of hiring since I've worked there and we sometimes also ask that IT professionals complete a skills test to determine how proficient they are. You would be surprised at how much people are willing to talk about their skills and how poorly they perform in a basic skills test of those same skills.

    There were 3 parts to the interview process. The first was a phone interview with basic questions about experience and skills. If you pass the phone interview, you move to a 1:1 interview. It was about 3 hours. I met with the supervisor individually, then the immediate team for a group interview, followed by a skills test, and ended with the supervisor again. The third part to the process was an interview with the supervisor's bosses for a final stamp of approval.
    Usually they call about 5 contenders, bring in 2-3 for interviews, and 1 to meet the bosses.
