I have been working at California State University full-time (More than 10 years)
Nice environment, wonderful students, great programs
Department politics can sometime go out of hand
Advice to Management
Make sure faculty morale is high
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at California State University.
I had a 15-minute "screening" interview with an HR person, then just a 1 hour interview with a panel of five people. Unfortunately I did not get a 1-1 interview with the person who would be my immediate supervisor.
It's after the interview and "soft offer" that the crazy part begins: a full background check involving previous salary verification and reference checks, and every address you've had for the past 7 years. It took forever.
