Interviewed at UC Berkeley
Interview Details – For my department (each one has a different process), I searched for a new GSI position each semester - and for 3 out of 4 semesters, I taught outside my department ... simply because there weren't enough jobs to go around.
Departments would post GSI positions, often through email listservs, and students would respond to the department administration. Again, each department is different ... but I don't recall interviewing with the professor I'd be working with, only the admin (HR) person.
Interview Question – What's your philosophy / policy around students cheating? View Answer

Interview Details – Very cool job, you learn a lot of technical skills and learn customer service as well. The hiring process requires you to fiddle around making a Word Document identical to the one that they give you, and then they put you in an interview where you have to answer a few technical questions. Don't worry if they're too hard, you can look things up during the interview. The big thing is making sure you have good customer service and address them nicely.
Interview Question – It's been a while since I interviewed with them, but the tech questions have to usually do with Word or Excel and how to to do so-and-so with possibly formatting things like footnotes. Answer Question
