    A week after the deadline, have a phone interview. Mostly behavioral questions. Another week later, meet the team on campus and have a group/panel interview after a coding exercise. Most questions are either about technical skills or behavioral practice.

    Art Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in March 2012.

    Interview

    It was a generally good experience. However, the interviewers had not made up their mind about what they were looking for in the position. The people were friendly and forthcoming, but it was hard to pitch oneself without a clear sense of what the department was looking for.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They sat me down in a room full of current supervisors and the current boss. They asked roughly 20 questions varying from personal details such as age, year, major to situational questions about the job. They were all very relevant. After the interview process they did a walk through of your daily job and you shadowed a current supervisor.

    Interview Questions

    • It was actually a pretty standard interview. What are your strengths, what are your weaknesses, why do you want to work here etc.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The application was submitted to HR and then was received by the department. The entire process took about a month. The department interview was made up of 4 other people (both faculty and staff). Overall pretty easy, but the process took a long time. When I started there was a backlog of work to make up.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Hideous! All kinds of personal, discrimnatory questions. Interviewer discussed his political and social preferences and asked me mine. Interviewer wanted me to travel with him and be a "partner" of his own consulting business, in addition to working at the University.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon in November 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted several weeks after applying on a Thursday and told the interview had to take place the next day during work hours, so I had to scramble to figure out my current work schedule. The interview itself was okay, but they spent a lot of time talking about themselves, instead of asking me questions. Took them a month to let me know I didn’t get the job.

    Administrative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Oregon in January 2017.

    Interview

    It took a little over the month after the job posting closed to get notice of an interview. The interview process was great - very organized and thorough. The interview consisted of two staff and the director. They took turns asking pre determined questions (they gave me a printout of the questions). All three gave very informative answers to all of the questions I had. I also had about an hour of informal time with most of the other department staff - again, very informative.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult but the main focus of the position was a bit different than what I got from the job posting. So, I felt a little unprepared for a couple of questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR).

    Interview

    Walked in, said I took the class and got an A, got the job. That was it. It may have helped that I had a friend who worked there, but even without that I would've just had to show some coding knowledge
