    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Georgia Tech in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was first interviewed by several senior graduate students of the lab over a conference call. Questions involved were primarily very general in nature, like describe your PhD work, why did you choose this lab, what was your most significant contribution, etc. Once that round was done, I was invited onsite for a face to face interview. This involved a presentation, a detailed question answer session (technical and HR type), a lab tour, and concluding session. Overall, very satisfied with the interview process. Was offered the position after 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Georgia Tech in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    First you have to submit your resume. If they like you based on that resume, then you will be chosen for the interview round. This interview round is one on one which is not too bad at all. They would ask you basic interview questions that mostly involve with make-up situations and your work ethics. For example, what would you do if you have to work under pressure and you can't meet the due date? Then they like you, you will have to come in for group interview. The questions in group interview are quite similar to individual interview, same concept.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say they kind of caught me off guard when they asked me have you ever dealt with diversity?   View Answer

    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.
