    Title IX Coordinstor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of the Pacific (Stockton, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online in March. I was contacted in April to interview by telephone. I interviewed by telephone two weeks later. I heard nothing.

    Two weeks later in May, I was notified by a reference that they were contacted (without my knowledge). I followed up with the school. I finally heard back. They wanted me to come to campus. Initially it was one day. Then it became 3. They paid to fly me from the East Coast. I visited all three campuses. No time to think. One meeting after the other. The time scheduled with some was too short, with others too long. I had to give a presentation. Driven by Lincoln Town car to all locations.

    I was told on campus they were going to check my references. (They lied. They didn't.) I was asked to think about where I wanted to put my office. (Strange) They took me on a residential tour and to see a marina (neither on schedule).

    They required me to interview with yet another person by telephone when I returned from my overnight flight home. I did. I sent thank you notes to each individual person. I heard back from some, not others.

    I left Thursday evening, arriving home on Friday AM. I interviewed by telephone with the last person on Saturday afternoon (we tried to interview on Friday, but I missed the call - go figure; I called back, and heard nothing to Saturday). Monday was July 4. I followed up on Monday July 11. That afternoon I received an email from the a senior staff member who was my contact throughout claiming to have hired someone who had experience the opposite of mine.

    The senior staff member, who was my contact, stopped responding. A secretary referred me to a low level staff person for reimbursements. This person's email responded on July 12 with an auto-reply saying she was out until the 25th. Yah. I haven't sent them yet. Why rush. No one is there to help me.

    Overall - they did a good job of being phony. They kissed my butt while I was there, but they never intended to hire me. I was the national candidate. They were dishonest in things they told me. Ultimately, they hired someone the opposite of me, who had a lesser pedigree than I had, and I felt it was a waste of time and resources. The person they did hire was the same age and had the same look as the President.

    Their behavior afterward, scurrying under a rock, ruined any good impression they gave me. I felt used and they clearly chose to cater to the chosen one, rather than wrap up their interaction with me in an appropriate way. It was a little too Los Angeles for Northern California.

    I wish I hadn't gone through the process. I feel like a used, discarded date. How ironic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of the Pacific (Stockton, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There are two interviews, one with a faculty member and one with a student. There is also a writing portion and a tour of the campus.

    The questions seemed were very typical. They seemed to be picking a few from a list they had.

    The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The school presented itself in a very warm manner as opposed to a colder and dry approach that is expected in the professional world.

    Multiple panel interviews spread over 3.5 hours. Very fair questions, but the delve into every area of the job description, and you need to be detailed in answers. Had a 1-1 interview with my boss, a 1-1 with someone in a similar position in another department, and a large 5 person panel of other people influential with my boss.
