    Assistant Professor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at West Chester University (West Chester, PA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a Skype interview with three people from the department. The questions were round robin and read directly from a paper. The panel looked bored to say the least. No follow up questions.

    It was obvious they were hiring from within and this was just a check mark on their list. Didn't receive a "thanks but no thanks" until TWO MONTHS later.

    Goolged who they hired and it was an adjunct. Yep, thanks for wasting my time. Of course, their qualifications are lacking but that's their problem.

    Don't apply for a professor position unless you're adjunct.

    IT Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    Panel interview. Questioners read from a paper of pre-determined questions. Showed little interest & asked almost no follow-up questions. I got the distinct impression that I was a place holder candidate & someone else was already selected for the position. Received a turn down letter within a week. A small bit of Googling revealed the candidate who was hired -- a student intern without the industry experience & certifications that are standard for these type of positions. Hard to believe that was the most highly qualified candidate.

    Advice: Don't bother to apply for IT related positions. They are clearly not serious about their hiring practices. Good luck to them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at West Chester University (West Chester, PA).

    Interview

    Phone interview conducted first, then I was called back for a finalist interview. The finalist interview was an all day event with a number of different panels as well as a presentation and Q&A with stakeholders as well as a one on one lunch with the dean. Overall an enjoyable experience. Was one of 3 finalists and was given a timeline for a decision - when that came and went after a few weeks I emailed a follow up and was told one of the other candidates had been offered accepted the position. It would have been nice to have received that update without having to follow up on my end.

    Resident Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    There are about 5 panel interviews, with usually 4 RDs/GAs conducting the interview and 5 people being interviewed. The interviewers conduct these interviews back to back so many can seem disinterested in your answers, thus having a relevant and memorable answer is quite helpful.

You have to create a visual aid for the interviews that describes who you are and you have a minute to present it at each interview.
