    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of British Columbia in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was positive. The interview was a panel format, and it did not appear that the interviewers were very well prepared in terms of either describing the requirements of the position, nor having made anything more than a cursory review of my resume.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of British Columbia in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was a bunch of general questions about your personality and how to problem solve issues and whether or not you would be a good fit with the team of individuals who are already woking there. They asked about previous work experiences and what kind of contribution we made to the job. It really is a fairly generic interview set up for a labour position with Housing and Conferences

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of British Columbia in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online, got an email from my employer within a day requesting for an interview. I had two one-on-one interviews with my employer. It was a less-structured interview in which my employer was trying to find a personality fit for the lab more than verifying my actual skill set.
