    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at University of Southern California.

    Interview

    the interview process was quiet lengthy, as I had to go through 4 interviews
    the interview questions were more behavioral, not so much skill-related
    I had a phone interview, then interview with director of the group, then an interview with both my manager and director and finally the CEO

    Interview Questions

    • Very informal, found out about position through a referral from another USC employee. Was hired based on my educational background, personality, and a good fit for the position/USC. I met with my future boss, discussed their research/goals and explained my background. Was hired on the spot!   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    Told of salary requirements, and was assured they would be met. Didn't find out until after accepting and working on the job that my salary would not be raised. I'm not happy about that at all.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I sent in a cover letter and resume through a public policy job site and was called for a phone interview, then invited for an in-person interview with the director and project manager. The questions were straight-forward and I felt at ease, especially since the interviewers seemed a bit awkward themselves!

    Negotiation

    I had never negotiated before so I didn't ask for anything except for paid parking, which they could not give me - I later learned that they don't even give paid parking to faculty.
