    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    Panel interview. Questioners read from a paper of pre-determined questions. Showed little interest & asked almost no follow-up questions. I got the distinct impression that I was a place holder candidate & someone else was already selected for the position. Received a turn down letter within a week. A small bit of Googling revealed the candidate who was hired -- a student intern without the industry experience & certifications that are standard for these type of positions. Hard to believe that was the most highly qualified candidate.

    Advice: Don't bother to apply for IT related positions. They are clearly not serious about their hiring practices. Good luck to them.
