    Just like normal academic interview. Since it's a phd postion application, I contacted my potential advisor directly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at University of Vermont (Burlington, VT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed at this job a couple days ago. First of all they never called me back to tell me what was going on. IN the interview it was pretty odd. They asked a bunch of odd questions and never really asked me about myself, my experience or anything like that. It was a lot of questions that didn't make sense to me. Sort of felt like they had their mind made up ahead of time, but they were interviewing me as a formality. I like the hospital a lot, but this interview did not go well.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me if I had ever been late to another job.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Vermont (Burlington, VT).

    Interview

    Very prescribed questions without much time to ask your own questions. Many different teams and functional areas, even within the Colleges. Be sure to ask questions about specific job responsibilities and who you report to and who will report to you.

    Interview Questions

    • As the candidate, I asked a question about work-life balance, to which I was given an answer (summarized here) that 'this is a professional organization' (that kind of response was a red flag that I missed and should have given more weight to)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Take time, do not rush to respond to offer even if you are only provided with 24hrs to respond.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Vermont in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online, though the university's website and was called about a month later to schedule a phone interview for the following week. The interview was conducted by two people: the supervisor of this position and another staff member the candidate would work closely with. They said they had seven questions they were asking each candidate; this took about 30 minutes and then I had a chance to ask questions.

    I was told they were conducting phone interviews the remainder of that week followed by in person interviews for final candidates; they were looking for someone to begin about a month later. I was told that I would be notified regardless of their decision about me moving forward. After two and half weeks and two follow up emails, I have heard nothing nor received a response from my initiative.

    • I was asked about my view of social justice.   Answer Question
    • Also asked about:
      - my approach to supervising students
