    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at UMass Medical School.

    Interview

    I applied through my college job board. After I submitted my resume to the PI, I received a response within a week asking for a personal interview. During the interview, I met with the PI, along with other PIs in the department, and then took a tour of the laboratory that I would work in if I got the position. I was accepted a few days later through email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UMass Medical School (Worcester, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The process began with a phone screen, then progressed to an in-person interview. Staff was extremely friendly and professional. All questions were expected. There were a few behavioral questions, so it's important to be prepared for those. Otherwise, nothing unexpected. Providing a sample of my work (e.g., writing sample) helped them better assess my skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UMass Medical School.

    Interview

    Extremely slow process and their Human Resources department is not helpful but only provided misinformation. I was never told many things about the job until I was in it. They expect you to do the job of two people and the salary is not sufficient enough for one person.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at UMass Medical School (Worcester, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email from the lab manager. Interviewed directly with the lab. There was no phone screen. Job description was given (although it greatly changed from what I ultimately did after about a month). Technical questions regarding previous lab work was asked. It wasnt very long. About 2 hours in total. But the offer letter came after about a week or two.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It is difficult to negotiate salary or raise because of restrictions from HR, even if you are a good candidate. However the sign on procedures after the interview were smooth.

    Interview

    Guidelines, process, and practice are highly variable. Presentation was given to those within Division, but was not advertised University-wide. No HR involvement until after I was hired. Apparent subjectivity introduces distrust in process.
