    Yes, the ultimate "terrible" interview question was asked by the person who would have been the direct line supervisor. "If you could be any kind of animal, what kind would you be and why?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Saint Louis University in June 2014.

    Interview

    The whole process took quite long. From initial application to second interview was about 8+ weeks. First had a phone interview, then invited for face interview, and finally the second interview. Beware! The PI for the lab I was interviewing for promised a position in the lab (I assumed that I was not the leading candidate but they felt that both me and the leading candidate were strong enough for the position so they would create a position for me), yet after the second interview I got radio silence.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Saint Louis University (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Long and detailed process - multiple calls to references, skill testing, multiple interviews with various individuals in department and HR, employee health testing. Required follow up on part of candidate, this is part of what separates those who succeed from those who don't, it should not discourage anyone who really wants to work at SLU. Can be confusing, ask HR for clarification whenever you need it, they are very helpful

    Negotiation

    if you really want to work there hang in and follow up, it takes awhile but don't give up. read everything they send you and stay in touch with HR. be very careful what you share, you can be judged on a random "chit chat" comment as much as on what you have on your resume. Clarify everything, in writing before you quit a current position or make a commitment

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Saint Louis University (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2010.

    Interview

    In-person contact with hiring manager, one-on-one screening, then panel interview. The interview was rather long--it went for at least two hours. The questions were rapid-fire and detailed. I got the impression that one of the interviewers was using a psychological technique to reveal unconscious biases. Although intense, it was not unfriendly.

    Reasons for Declining

    HR has a rule that an employee cannot make a lateral move and get a raise--they failed to tell me this until I had completed the entire process and gotten an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Saint Louis University in June 2009.

    Interview

    There were three interviews total. Two were panel, one individual. The first two rounds of interview were panel, the first being one of my "peers" and the second being a panel of Senior Staff level employees. In both interviews, a few of the panel members seemed less than thrilled to be there. They never made eye contact, hardly wrote anything down on their question sheet and continually checked their watch or the clock on the wall. The questions were all pretty standard. The one-on-one interview was with the Vice President. He was very friendly, but pretty much asked the same questions as the two previous interviews.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.
