Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant
Santa Monica, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at RAND in May 2008.

Interview Details – All-day interview meeting with all levels of people, from HR to Research Assistants and Researchers. Everyone is very polite and encouraging and wants to see what you bring to the table and if you are a good fit with the culture. While everyone is very busy with their own work the atmosphere is very cooperative and you get the feeling that they love what they do.

Interview Question – Talk about your research experience, educational background, etc. Pretty standard but thorough.   Answer Question

Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at RAND in January 2010.

Interview Details – Seemed pro forma and that they were required to post the position but already had someone they wanted to hire. Totally uninterested , box checking, no response to topics/questions/attempt at any convo. Came away with the impression that job was posted strictly for CYA purposes. Clubby.
