    Research Associate/Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at North Carolina State University.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was many years ago but each step was clear. Job responsibilities and duties were clearly outlined. Salary was clear but not negotiable. HR processes have changed over the years so I do not know how relevant my experience is to what current interviewees will experience. For example, there were no background tests then as there are now.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No salary negotiation. The employer knew I wanted the job and also knew I had a 'better' offer elsewhere.
