    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Western Oregon University (Monmouth, OR) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Pleasant campus interview. Offer made within 2 weeks of interview. No negotiations possible due to faculty contract. Get any offers made by the Dean/Provost IN WRITING as they often aren't followed through on.

    Negotiation

    Due to the WOU faculty union there are no negotiations . . . even on the absurdly low salary.

    There really was nothing to it, I applied, gathered signatures from professors who knew my skill level and authorized me to tutor for their classes. After that all I had to do was talk to the person in charge of the tutors at Western Oregon University.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Western Oregon University (Monmouth, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One day recieved call from chair am I still available in job market. I had applied almost 4 months back. A follow-up call of chair secretary came and within two weeks a phone interview was done. They asked some standard questions. Just in two days secretary again called to schedule campus visit and exactly after three weeks of the phone interview my campus visit was scheduled. Campus visit was too hectic as I met provost, Dean, chair, HR person and all search committee members. I gave a 30 mins teaching demo on time value of money and 1 hour research presentation. Within one week I received the job offer. They did not negotiate at all on the salary. And salary was final.
