    I worked at University of Washington full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall, the University of Washington is a wonderful place to work. One of the best things about working for UW is the benefits, including tuition, medical/dental, and retirement (403b). Also, the UW is environmentally and socially conscious which are huge 'Pros".

    Cons

    Overall, it was a good place to work. It's hard to come up with something to list as a "Con" for the University of Washington. If pressed, I'd say my least favorite aspect of working at the UW was the lack of employee parking.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington.

    Interview

    Short but meaningful interview process about skill and previous experience. Relevant questions were asked. Email response in the slower side but otherwise a good experience. Did not feel uncomfortable at all during the time I was being interviewed.
