    It was behavioral interview, based on our past experience dealing with students and communication skills, on campus activities etc., I got a mail from College of Engineering Architecture and Technology office to meet Professor in his room.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oklahoma State (Stillwater, OK) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Position is based on GPA. I got a phone call from the business school offering the position of Graduate Teaching Assistant. They only call students who have a good GPA (Mine was 3.7 at the time). Many positions are available you just need to do well in the first semester. I would recommend getting a 4.0 and then just wait for that call.

    Negotiation

    There was none.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oklahoma State.

    Interview

    The first interview was with a panel of four people from the department and people who work closely with the department, including the direct supervisory. The interview was structured with a specific list of questions prepared in advance. The second interview was with the same panel of four, and they allowed plenty of time for my questions and more open-ended dialogue.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were fairly standard and predictable.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR handled the offer and onboarding process. There was an orientation class immediately after I started, and the supervisor encouraged me to take time to meet people on campus. She was professional and very supportive as I learned about OSU and working in a state/academic institution.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oklahoma State (Stillwater, OK).

    Interview

    The award process is completely based on your application. Given the low number of applicants, I'd say you're almost guaranteed funding (within reason) if you apply.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult questions are simply those on the application. There is no true "interview."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating. The stipend is set. I'd consider asking to possibly TA 2 classes though as opposed to being both a TA and research assistant.
