    Interview Details

    It was pretty basic - reviewing resume, expected salary, schedule, etc...
    I applied through the department's job website. They asked me the standard questions and hired me. I worked during the summer and I was able to make contacts in other classes through the winter and spring and through the years.

    Interview Details

    There was no interview. I was recommended by a professor and was then hired for the internship. I believe most internships in which you are recommended by a professor there will be no interview. It was a very easy process to be hired.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at San Francisco State.

    The first part of the interview is a two hour long process where you mark up a sample student's paper as if you were the teacher. They want to see a) your approach and rationale to assessing and commenting on student writing and b) your familiarity with common ESL grammatical issues, as well as your pedagogical approach to grammar teaching.

    The second part of the interview will be a f2f interview with a 6 member CMS committee.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult aspect turned out to be not knowing the department's philosophy, which was quite opposite of how the teachers I TAed with actually work.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at San Francisco State in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was only interviewed by the PI of the lab. Very casual. I had coffee with the PI and discussed the research I'd be doing as well as the research the other lab members were working on. I then met with the other lab members and gave a power point seminar during their lab meeting. A slightly awkward lunch with the lab followed.

    Administrative Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at San Francisco State in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    The process takes months. There is to much paperwork to get done in order to get hired. You also have to submit an application in person with HR. At least this was the process in 2008. It seems that between HR, the hiring manager, your manager, and the unit supervisor there is no communication. The wait for an entry level job should not take more than a few weeks to have someone in place. This took months.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are very simple. What is your strength/weakness? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? How do you handle stress?   Answer Question
