    I have been working at Grand Valley State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent flexibility, though this is department specific.

    Cons

    Many of the manager are professors, meaning they have no actual management training.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a greater research focus to bring more prestige to the university.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grand Valley State University (Allendale, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It is a round table event where they have you come in introduce themselves and then ask questions about your experiences and qualifications. It is fairly administered and seems level headed in its technique.
