    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview then In Person Interview. The phone interview was actually using Skype so it was a video conference interview because I live out of town. The in person interview included a panel of department leadership as well as a person who was recently hired. I'm doubting that person answered the questions I was asked.

    Interview Questions

    • Were not standard. They were super specific to the position as if I were already int he role and being asked what my plan of action was for the project without any additional knowledge.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Long and drawn out; phone interview (wait 2 weeks) in person interview (wait 2 weeks) actually still waiting to hear back from them if I was the candidate selected.

    Interview

    Got a call a week after applying for an interview 2 days later. Business dress was a good assumption. Friendly faces. 50 minutes with a panel of 5: 4 future teammates + supervisor. 13 easy, scripted, and predictable questions. 1 strength, 1 weakness, a time when you...

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    1 prelim 1-on-1 interview and 1 group interview. The interview process will differ by department, however. All jobs are applied for over the website, and sometimes additional documentation is required. You have to upload your resume data to the application website, but also have the option of attaching a PDF.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember, because it was a long time ago now. It was some standard inteview questions, such as whether you can work in a team and where you see yourself in 5 years. Now I'm here well beyond 5 years and in such a static environment that my boss had to retire for me to advance. Advancement is difficult here in general.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No room to negotiate--it's essentially a state job.

    Three step process. Applications are reviewed by the University HR office, then all eligible candidates are forwarded to the hiring department. Usually applicants undergo a first round of interviews with a group, and are invited back for a final interview with supervisors. The process can sometimes take months.

    ALWAYS negotiate your entry salary. Once your salary is fixed, the opportunities to significantly increase your pay are rare.

    I was initially contacted within two days of applying via email. We scheduled an interview within two weeks for the position. After the interview a decision was rendered after 3 weeks. I was interviewed by the director of the program in his office. Very friendly encounter that was more of a running dialogue than hard pressed questions. The work culture was very relaxed.

    Negotiate the highest salary possible up front, because the annual salary increases are negligible. The best/only way to move up is generally to change positions within the organization.
