I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at UC Berkeley in May 2010.
Interview Details – The interview was hosted in a UC Berkeley Meeting Room at the Martin Luther King Student Union building. It was a group panel as well as a group interview. There were approximately 3 to 4 interviewers and 4 to 5 interviewees. They asked typical questions regarding how one would interact in a setting with real students under different scenarios. One part of the interview also consisted of splitting into two groups to formulate and stimulate a pretend "class presentation" on how to eat healthy and discuss our reasons why our presentation would be effective or persuasive to primary or secondary school students.
Overall, the interview was more casual than business with a focus on how you handle classroom scenarios and your communication skills with younger people. If you have past experiences with young students in the past, I would highly recommend incorporating that into any part of the interview as it really does give the interviewee the advantage over others in the group.
