Research Analyst In Strategic Initiatives Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at University of Texas System.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Details – Submitted application, was invited to come in for a skills test before being considered. Then I was called to come in for an interview with two interviewers. I did well, however didn't have the experience they were looking for. The individuals I met were pleasant and engaging. I will look forward to another opportunity - seemed like a place I'd like to work for.

Office Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Richardson, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Texas System in March 2010.

Interview Details – 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."

Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Richardson, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Texas System in April 2010.

Interview Details – 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 Question – Do you think you will be bored w/ this job   View Answer
