    Interview Details

    the HR department takes a long time and filters out applications before hiring managers ever see them. Each department and job level varies greatly with the rounds of interviews. Try to send resume directly to hiring manager when possible.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online. Then I followed up by calling the chair of the department several times. Then I got an offer to come to the university to visit the department and faculty. During my visit, I made contact with one specific professor who wanted me to join his lab and it was through his contact that I was made an official offer later, which I accepted.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tulane University.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process began with networking to a friend who worked for the University. The friend provided a referral to the hiring office, and I subsequently completed my online application for the position. Received a call within 2 weeks and began the interview process from there.

    First call was a screener with the office director, who then invited me to have a phone interview with two current employees (which occurred within a few days of my initial call). Call was very pleasant and conversation, with a bit of behavioral interview type questions. Followed up with in-person interviews, approximately 2 hours of interviews with three different groups of interviewers. Questions were fairly conversational with some behavioral questions again. Received an offer within a week of final interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were limited since the budget was fixed for the salary, but fringe benefits were very attractive.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tulane University in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received e-mail to set up an interview with PI. The interview was very laid-back and didn't ask many questions but generally told me about their research. Gave me a tour of the lab facilities. Seemed a bit unorganized and like I was the first interview. Met with Professor who was very nice and then two post-docs.

    Development Directory Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tulane University in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    very good discussions and good interview process. Open discussion regarding salary range, and this was the limiting factor for this position. Benefits, work environment, all seemed positive, the salary just was not in the range needed to make it worthwhile. The education benefit is unbeatable, particularly if you have children who are a few years away from going to college. I believe the way it works is after two years employment, your dependents are eligible for free tuition coverage by the school and possibly free tuition at other reciprocating schools, though that is a little more difficult to work out (i.e. there needs to be a dependent of that school going to Tulane, then your dependent can go to that school.)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Tulane University in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied through web page based on my good friend's recommendation. Very fast decision. They hold high standards for incoming graduate students. When I had troubles with visa, they helped me with the whole process and the office staff is amazing. Interview was based on my previous work experience. Doesn't dwell much on how much you can memorise. Rather, they focus more on fit.
