    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Washington University in September 2016.

    Interview

    After being selected from the candidate pool, I received a phone call to ask if a particular salary range (up to mid-50s) was acceptable and if I'd like to continue in the interview process. The first interview was a 30 minute phone interview. There were at least 8 individuals on the other line while I interviewed. Individuals included faculty, staff (admissions), and a student.

    I was asked about 10 questions and then given an opportunity to ask my own. What was odd is that I asked 1 question and then was cut off and told we were out of time even though there was 10 minutes left.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Western Washington University (Bellingham, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied many months prior to being called to interview, but the first part of the process was a Skype interview with the Dean of the department and an assistant. They asked questions pertinent to my field and were very generous and polite - though I felt I had done a terrible job. I should have prepared more, I think. I heard a few days later from the program director that I had gotten the position.
