    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi.

    Interview

    Difficult for an on-campus job, but necessary. This is truly a professional interview, so look and act the part. This is the most elite position that one can have on campus, so it is selective in nature.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email asking to set up a phone interview. From there, I scheduled a phone interview and a few days later got a phone call asking to schedule a on-campus interview. On my on-campus interview, I had three different interviews. First round one-on-one, second round panel of students, and third round panel of higher ups.

    Professor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy going and laid back. It was easier than I thought it would be. I thought it was a great process overall. The largest aspect was trying to get in the door and getting through the entire process of HR and getting through the interview scheduling. Academics go slow so I understand why it took a while but still it is hard to wait so long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS).

    Interview

    The interview spanned 2 days of interviews, presentations, dinners, and meetings. The people appeared very nice and seemed to be a great place to work. There were signs of the problems that arose in the future that, had I been more experienced, I would have noticed.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were pre-scripted and not unexpected. However, the real estate agent that took us on a tour of the city asked some personal questions because she remembered meeting me six years prior.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They informed me that they wanted to hire me and would be submitting a request for my contract. I did not negotiate the pay or terms, but wish I had.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS) in March 2013.

    Interview

    They sort listed the candidates. They provided me the date for the phone interview and I prepared for that. There were four professors and administrators to ask questions. I was little bit nervous at the beginning but they asked me about personal matter first and asked about my research and future plans in my work. I am pretty sure I answered confidently. The process was not that much long. But I really enjoyed. They were friendly and helpful. That was my second interview in my job search. That's all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi in June 2012.

    Interview

    The online application process did not work. Tried working with their HR dept. but they were only helpful when I went to the office in person. Emailing them was a waste of time. It did eventually get fixed, but only after the face-to-face exchange (which was pleasant).

    The phone interview was disappointing because I could not hear the interviewers. I asked them to repeat questions, but they did nothing to increase their volume. I wish phone interviewers would start picking up the receiver when they talk.
