    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took 3 weeks before I got called.

    1) The manager of the position I applied for called me. Had a 30 minute phone interview with her. She was impressed and moved me to the next round which was to speak with the Director. This took 2 weeks. (Round 1)

    2) Director called me for a 30 minute phone interview (Round 2). Passed with flying colours and she re-iterated that she would love to bring me in for the third round.

    3) Met with the team on campus (Round 3). Took 1 hour. Shook hands, smiled, answered questions, and figured I got the offer.

    4) My references were contacted and all gave raving reviews. I was looking forward to receiving the offer based on the interactions and follow-up emails after the interviews. Everyone was engaged BUT.....

    They closed the position due to budget restrictions out of no where. I had to follow up and ask when they would be making a final decisions. I asked after my references gave me the go-ahead a week later. I e-mailed the manager and asked for an update but in a rude way she replied "sorry the position is closed we wish you the best on your career ahead". I swear I knocked this interview out of the park. Just wasn't meant to be I guess. Words of advice, give it your all at interviews but don't put your emotions into it...its just another job.

    Arts and Entertainment Technologies Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview was a skype interview and lasted about 7 minutes, very cut and dry basic interview questions.
    My second interview was held on campus at UT. I had to create a presentation in which I taught a five minute presentation. I thought the second interview went ok and was informed I would know after the weekend about the committees decision for the role. I did not hear anything from them until I called (four weeks later) in which I talked to a very rude woman in the strategies and policy office. She informed me that the position had already been filled, but seemed a bit confused about what position I was inquiring about.
    After that I was still not certain if the job was filled or not. After a couple of emails and a voicemail that I had left, I still have heard nothing and the position and still says open on the HR website. This is the most unprofessional institution that I have dealt with this far. If you are not going to hire someone please communicate that to them in a timely manner, or at least answer an email.
