    Wonderful...It was very easy and I truly enjoyed speaking with everybody. So they hired me. It was a long time ago. I am looking for new jobs now. I want it to be part time with a very awesome place just like UCLA where the employers actually count on you and without you nothing can be done.

    A short (20-30 minute) interview with many (eg. 11) people from the department. Each interviewer walks you to your next meeting. They provided a list of interviewers in advance and it helped to research them in advance to know what their individual research fields were.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    This was for an entry-level position so only job requirements and schedule was discussed. My responsibilities were explained in general terms. I was introduced to everyone in the office and talked a little bit about myself and my background. Because I was referred by a previous employee, the process was very quick and not difficult at all. I was asked to do HR paperwork at the day of the interview.

    There was no interview process, just the normal admissions that one would have to complete and be qualified for. For graduate school it is better to know a professor and be able to work in the lab.
