Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH).

Interview

easy and friendly for the most part. met with multiple people 1:1. good coordination and arrangements. hospitality was good. after first visit, was invited for a second visit too, and had a phone conversation at some point too.
as usual, first interview is more about me, and second interview is what I need to know about them ( they already like me, so now I can feel free to ask more detailed questions)

    Interview

    Getting hired at a University is not an easy process. I found the people at UC to be very helpful, in spite of all the hoops you have to jump through. They took me out to a great dinner and showed me around the city. They even had a realtor show me around, so I could figure out where to buy a house.

    Negotiation

    They negotiated a little, but not that much. I wanted the job, so I only asked for a slight increase in salary, which they agreed to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Applicants for tenure track are reviewed by committee. Top 5-7 applicants are then asked to conduct phone interviews. Phone interview determines an invite for personal interview with faculty, directors, dean, students roughly a week or two later. This visit and presentation is a critical factor. This is a stat run institution. There are many steps and things can move slower than expected.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you describe your teaching philosophy and how do you think it would fit in our program?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was minimal. Director makes a bid, and you counter that bid. Until you find a middle ground.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Standard interview in my field. Presented a lecture of original research with Q&A. Meeting with faculty search committee: asked about reasons for wanting to teach at UC, potential courses I could offer, interests in classroom teaching vs. research. Meeting with graduate students in the department: very varied areas of interest, some clearly liked my specialty, some were openly hostile to it. Interviewed by: dean, one-on-one time with chair of the search committee, lunch with other members of the committee (being asked detailed questions about publication experiences working with specific presses, editing experience, etc.), and meeting with HR to review benefits package. Taught one class meeting of a required course for majors. Very friendly and helpful atmosphere in general.

    Interview Questions

    • Should all majors in the field be required to take a course in [a particularly detailed subject related directly to my speciality]?   1 Answer
