    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Texas System.

    Interview

    Interview was approximately 1 hour with a panel of 3 people--the assistant director of the dept and 2 potential colleagues. Questions were pretty standard and dealt with specific job experience and technical skills. After the interview there is a 45 minute assessment (pen and paper) that requires you to write syntax for data management and analysis using SAS.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Texas System (Richardson, TX) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was a pleasant experience, first met w/ administrator who was leaving, then with the professor who I would be working for. Administrator explained the requirements of the job, spoke w/ her for around 1/2 hours. then met one on one with the professor. he was a personable, relaxed fellow i would have enjoyed working for. i was hopeful that i was going to get an offer and was very disappointed when i didn't. when i called to follow up in a weeks time i got the impression i might have been the #2 pick, as the admin indicated that they were making someone else the offer, but they didn't know yet whether they were accepting

    Interview

    Met with secretarial staff/directors and assistant vice president. The questions were silly and the atmosphere was negative. There appeared to be no diversity in those who were interviewing me. A question asked, "What type of ceral I would be if I could be one?'" is irrelavant."

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas System in June 2009.

    Interview

    The phone interview was scheduled around 1 week in advance. While scheduling the interview, I was advised that it will be a 1:1 phone conversation with the hiring manager. The actual interview, however, had around 5 or 6 people on the call, using a speaker phone. It was difficult to keep track of who was who, especially because of a poor speakerphone environment.
