    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a panel, 4 people in the department, one from anther department. I was asked mostly technical questions, but then some about my experience and working style. The interview was scripted, all the questions were pre-written, and the same questions were asked of all candidates. I heard back a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult questions were the technical questions - very specific cases about audio-video special cases and scenarios.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was offered more than I was expecting, so I was not the strongest negotiator. I asked for one step above what they offered me. (UC job pay grades are in "steps")
