I worked at University of Hawaii at Manoa part-time (Less than a year)
Great working environment and boss is great!
nothing really too bad unless you want a chill job
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Hawaii at Manoa (Honolulu, HI).
As is the case with a state school, you are often surrounded by a committee and questions are read off a sheet. The larger the committee, the more formulaic the questions are.
The smaller the committee, however, the more intrusive the questions get. At more than one interview (I've done several), I was asked about my marital status, my nationality, the nationality of my spouse and whether I was married to a foreigner, the ethnic origins of my name, whether I would quit my current job to take this job, and other questions that were actually against state law.
When I notified UH HR about these questions, they merely referred me to the local HRs for the department I applied for. Those HRs never got back to me, or they were in on the illegal questioning, or the (small) committee simply denied they asked those questions and nothing came of it.
Be advised: UH is a corrupt employer to begin with, but dealing with this degree of diffidence towards state laws is very shocking. Beware.
