    I have been working at University of Central Arkansas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will receive a lot of benefits: wellness benefits, free access to the gym, discounts to performances, reduced co-pay for visiting the Health Center, free counseling...the list goes on.

    Cons

    If you are a professor, you pretty much have free reign over your time. If you are professional staff, how much flexibility you have depends on the division for which you work. Some supervisors are sticklers about every second you're supposed to be on the clock. Also, UCA provides the lowest pay in the state for certain types of non-teaching opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Consider flex time and working from home as options for people whose jobs permit it. Productivity and morale will increase.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at University of Central Arkansas (Conway, AR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process involved a skype interview and on-campus visit. The skype interview was a few weeks after the application. About 2 weeks after the skype interview, they contacted me to let me know that they wanted to bring me to campus for an interview. The on-campus involved meeting with the key administrators in the college, HR, departmental faculty, and a presentation. The interview went well and at the end of the interview, they told me that they'd be making their decision and had very confident hopes of making an offer within the next two weeks. About a week later, they let me know that HR was requiring them to bring in another candidate for administrative purposes. I was continually assured I'd be getting an offer. After 4 weeks of waiting, I finally said that I needed to know. They told me that they'd offered to another candidate earlier in the week. The mixed messages were incredibly unprofessional.
