    Verhandlungsdetails

    In my first contract I was offered 15,000.00 per month but arrived in Abu Dhabi to find a contract with a salary of 11,250.00 per month. HR would not honor the first agreement and I was left with having to take the low salary as I was already there. I left after 2 years for a position at a neighboring country. I was asked to reapply after 2 years at the other institution and did so because there had been a change in the administration. I negotiated my salary successfully but did not move till after I had the contract in hand and a string of emails documenting the negotiation process. Stating one salary and then being given a lower one is not peculiar to Zayed University. The American University in Dubai is known to do the same.

    skype interview. it was conversational. Few questions about why move to UAE, teaching experience and research potential. other questions were about international experience, cultural sensitivity and adaptability. the conversation was agreeable and the questions were clear and to the point. Research questions were to clarify areas and see a future plan.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The first on-line interview, recorded, was relaxed and allowed me to say some positive things about myself. The Chair seemed quite encouraging. Two other departmental members were there, who were positive and professional; one of them, from what I could see on-line, had some decent credentials. The second interview left me rather unsure about where things are going; I felt on the defensive -- one of them was an Associate Dean. The first contact from HR came seven weeks after the initial interview, stating that a "proposal outlining compensation" was coming in the ensuing weeks. Two weeks later, I'm waiting to see the proposal and weighing my options.

    Applying was fine. The interview was bizarre (four very tired-looking faculty with I think 2 publications between them). Negotiations following the interview were slow, then stopped. I quit before accepting contract. Human Resources were shockingly unprofessional - I can understand why most people want to leave.

    The interview was conducted in a friendly and relaxing manner, with no surprising questions. Everyone in the search committee seemed nice and approachable, and asked some basic questions related to my research and teaching. I got the response from the HR two weeks after the interview. Then the hiring process started, which seemed a little longer than expected.

    One inperson interview in the US. The Dean and his colleage had a very informal meeting with me. My credentials preceeded me and they wanted to hire me. The interview was more about whether I was congenial and whether my vision was aligned with theirs.

    • Really nothing unexpected - because it is a professor position, asked about courses I could teach, etc.   Frage beantworten

    They do not really negotiate, at least in my case. HR decides on a salary and you are expected to accept as is.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2008 bei Zayed University.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    A lot of paperwork requested. Given a video cam interview with relatively easy questions. Once an offer was given a lot more paper work requested. This was generally a pain as the paper work requested was duplicates of official paperwork but notaries are not accepted in the UAE so the head of government agencies and regions etc had to sign off on all paperwork. The amount of documentation required to work at ZU or any government university is perplexing. Also beware as original copies are often not returned by various agencies or an employer. Employers also take advantage of the system requesting information that is non-standard or when leaving a position asking the employee to leave a month early etc etc to avoid paying out the contract or benefits so beware.

    The only reason for this I discovered after living in the UAE for awhile is that the government agencies collect funds by requiring fees for their signatures on all documentation. This includes legal documents such as birth certificates, university diplomas, marriage certificates, custody papers etc. Also this includes anything done in the UAE. For example to get a loan from a bank you are required to get your employers permission. To turn on utilities you are required to get employers and government permission. To enroll your child in a school you are required to get the UAE board of education permission etc etc etc. Most of these things are senseless and are viewed as a tax. However they take up a lot of time as these entities are only open for certain hours and often take breaks during work hours which correspond with your own work hours. So you have to leave work to get a signature during someone else's work hours then wait till they are there or off break to sign and pay a fee. Then take that receipt to somewhere else where you pay another fee and so on. Sometimes it is ridiculous for example you will need to have a document translated and signed by numerous people as endorsement without them being able to or bothering to read the document anyway

    Verhandlungsdetails

    None I was offered what they termed as the "highest' salary for that position and department. I accepted it and was told I was lucky as others had been hired for less. Later I discovered that the limit I was given was untrue that others with fewer years experience or with less academic qualifications were started at a higher rate. Alternatively I also found that people with higher academic qualifications and many years of experience were hired for less. The salary rate is not transparent at ZU it appears to be a matter of whom you speak with in HR and who you know in the country. It was also good to request the housing I expected i.e pets and family as those were provided which made relocation much easier.

    bland interview, stupid questions, just based on cv, nothing interesting was asked, it felt like they hadn't actually read my cv at all, pretty disappointing considering the amount of time I spent preparing
