    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone at the university and then by the hiring manager who then took over the recruiting process. There were large gaps of time between applying, hearing from someone to set up the phone interview, then for the in person interview, then nothing. The HR and recruiting people were not present, the follow up was poor, and even though I was a finalist for the position, I never heard from them after the last interview, The process they described was going to be at least 5 months from applying to getting an offer, then another couple of months to start. No salary range was ever discussed. Fortunately I got another offer immediately after my last interview with Case, where the process was only 3 weeks from application to offer.
