    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Tennessee - Knoxville (Knoxville, TN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back from them about a month later. They sent me an email and called to schedule an interview on campus, noting a sense of urgency for the position. I flew over to Knoxville on my own dime for a panel interview with 6 staff. They said they'd contact me after a month from the interview but I have not heard from them in over two months. I don't mind not getting the job, but I do mind not receiving any communication whatsoever.
