    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Originally, the job title was "Research Assistant." However, once the interview began, they stated that the actual title of the position was "Program Assistant." This was misleading and not the specific job I was intending to interview for. Inside the room, I spoke with director and supervisor, who closely followed a list of questions, leaving little room for conversation.
