    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rice University.

    Interview Details

    Called by their HR dept for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted less than 10 mins. All the questions were negative and no amount of practice could of prepared you for this interview. At one point, I heard the interviewer sigh with disapproval when she asked me about the salary (keep in mind the application asked for my salary expectations so I don't understand why it was such a surprise to her). After the interview was done, was told I would hear about the next steps.

    Interview Questions
    • This is exactly the order of negative questions I was asked: 1. Why are you leaving your current employer? 2. Salary expectations 3. Your weakness (never asked about my strengths) 4. Name one thing you don't like about your job and etc.......   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with them and they promised to let me know the outcome. Unfortunately no one contacted me to at least inform that they are not interested in the second interview. It is a courtesy and I was expecting a better interview experience at Rice.
