I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston University.
Was asked by the professor to be his TA, and I said yes! BU is a great place to TA! I would recommend all students to give it a shot- they won't regret it!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston University.
Easy questions, straight forward. They basically asked about my background, education and 5 year/ 10 year plan. They mostly talked to me about the lab, science and research and gave me a tour of the facilities. I met with the physician, nurse and manager. I also spoke with students in the lab while i waited in between interviews.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in April 2015.
Phone interview, lasted about 30 minutes. The website was very helpful in keeping apprised as to the status of my application. I had always wanted to interview with them, and I felt lucky to have even made it to that phase. They gave me a choice of attending an in-person session in Florida or doing a phone interview. As I only had 2 days notice, I went with the phone option.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston University.
The interview was very comprehensive. There were 2 group interviews, each lasting 2 hours. During that time, you and the other interviewees were expected to work together to solve issues. Then, after the group interviews, each person had an individual interview. It was intense, but overall a good experience. Remember to not compete with the other interviewees--they are judging to see how you work in a team setting.

I applied online. I interviewed at Boston University.
I was called in for an Interview at HR, which was very easy, the woman asked some basic questions and gave me some information about benefits. However, I had not been previously informed that after that interview I would immediately have to go to an interview with the department manager for the position I applied for (they had set up the interview saying it was an interview with HR). I had worked at BU as a student and already knew the manager so it wasn't too bad for me, but talking to others who were hired after me, I think it was a little more disconcerting for them. The hiring process after the interview went pretty quickly.
- They were all pretty typical behavioral type questions. I already knew the manager from previously working at BU so we got a bit off topic with things and it turned into more of just a chat than an interview 1 Answer

The interviewing process was quick with HR. The interview process with the actual team I worked with was a multi-step process and required multiple trips back to the University. The interviews were a combination of 1:1 with HR, and group interviews with the business teams. Overall the interview was quite standard and routine.
