    I'm international student. The director came to China to make the interviews. The whole process is much easier than I thought, most of the questions are basic information, why you interested, etc.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Stony Brook University in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application and came highly recommended. The interviewer knew me and had worked with me on another project. He admitted I was a perfect match for the job and was convinced I would do very well then proceeded to tell me he would be spending a tremendous amount of money on his "clients" dinner and my salary would be $10/hr. Period.

    Interview Details

    Not very lengthy, relatively straight forward. I worked at the university while I was a student so I'm not sure how useful my information is. I worked under the division of campus residences. They were organized well enough to function on a regular basis but problems arose on a fairly regular basis.

    You have to go through the admission process of the university. It is similar to the procedure followed by other universities. You submit your resume, all official transcripts, GRE scores and TOEFL scores if you need to, a personal statement indicating who you want to work with and why and have 3 professors send a recommendation letter for you to the university. This procedure should be done by mid december and you will get an answer around april.
