Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant
Cleveland, OH

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Case Western Reserve University in June 2010.

Interview Details – Started communication with phone interview. Then scheduled interview with primary manager. Second interview was then scheduled with higher up folks (2). Interviews were short (<1 hour) and consisted mostly of talking about past research, education, and personality questions.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – No. They offer you the minimum number you put in for salary when you apply. I would tell people to put in a realistic number for the minimum salary acceptable-- put in the number you want, not the one you're going to be angry about in 6 months.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Case Western Reserve University in October 2010.

Interview Details – The interview took one hour. Most of questions were asked by the PI about what types of techniques I have. I had a feeling that the interview was not well organized. All the questions were just come out from the PI. I didn't impress the PI, so I was not able to get the position.
