I have been working at University of Chicago full-time
UChicago is a great place to work.
The neighborhood is not the greatest.
The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Chicago.
Consistently bad experience. Considering how esteemed the University of Chicago is, it is particularly shocking how inept they are at recruiting talent. Interviewed first with a project manager - not someone in HR or talent acquisition. Weeks later heard back and was asked to have an in-person interview with the hiring manager.
After the interview, was told by hiring manager that she would be in contact within a week. She wasn’t. Was emailed six weeks later by hiring manager saying the HR system would be transitioning and that if I received an auto rejection letter, I should reapply via the new system (?!). She again promised to follow up within a week and didn’t.
I emailed the hiring manager a week later and received a response email from the project manger (?) telling me to reapply via the new system if I was still interested.
I’m not and I didn’t.
Unsurprisingly, the role is still open and there are always jobs available at this place. Seems much more a bullet dodged than an opportunity lost.
