Academic Advisor Interview

Academic Advisor
Tempe, AZ (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Arizona State in January 2008.

Interview Details It is different for each department but it usually takes at least a month. The interview process is long and drags out because there's a ton of rules that they "have" to follow. When it comes down to it, if they want to hire you, they will find a way to make it happen-following the rules or not.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations allowed.

Instructional Technology Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Tempe, AZ (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Arizona State in July 2010.

Interview Details A very lengthy process; one may not hear back for an initial phone interview for two months, and after the phone interview the process still moves slowly. Interview committee was made up of university staff and professors, and the questions were more informal and behavioral than corporate and cut-and-dry. Phone interview generally consists of a conference call with 3 other individuals, representing interested parties in the position itself. As it is an educational institution, interviewees should be prepared to answer questions about their views on undergraduate education and the like.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time that you built something.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Salary range at the university level is fixed, and I was hired at the top end of the advertised salary range.
