    Financial Administrator III Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Georgia Tech.

    Interview Details

    I applied online in January 2014 and the process took 6 weeks. I had an initial interview in January with the hiring manager. I was called back in February for a 2nd interview with the hiring manager, her boss and the dean. At the end of the interview, I asked when a hiring decision would be made. All of the managers responded that the position was on hold due to funding. I was upset since they knew this prior to bringing me in for a 2nd interview that lasted an hour. It was a big waste of my time!

    Student Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Georgia Tech in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process to become a student assistant was very informal. Student assistants are tasked with menial duties like copying, scanning, answering phones and emails, and many other tasks that may pop up anytime. The interview merely consisted of the Associate Director asking me questions about my international experience, office experience, language proficiency, and availability. It was very informal and easy.

    Research Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Georgia Tech in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Since I was still in college at the time of the interview, mine took place via phone. It was easy to coordinate and took no more than 30 minutes. I was asked the typical questions ("What qualifies you for this position?", "Why are you interested in this position?", "What do you plan to do with the skills you gain from this position?") and was pleased to discuss compensation immediately. Overall, it was a great interview experience.

    Interview Questions
    • In my cover letter, I mentioned that I had already applied to graduate school, but was deferring accepting an offer due to concerns about my career goals. Obviously, I was asked about this - but honesty (that I wanted to discover if research was my calling before committing to a graduate program) landed me the job, and my boss' respect.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation took place at the time of the interview - I was given a month to move to Atlanta, find an apartment, and get settled before starting my job. I was given opportunities to advance and improve my title (and salary) within a year.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Georgia Tech in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Simple enough interview process. This is especially true for postdocs. It was conducted over teleconference and phone. This can often be a reasonable way to gauge a lab you want to join, but pay special attention to what the existing lab personnel say.
