    The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at UC Irvine.

    Interview Details

    Panel interviews seem to be the norm. I was interviewed by 5 people simultaneously. They called it popcorn style and questions were directed at me from all members of the panel in a somewhat random order. After advancing to the next round, I was asked to answer a case and submit my input in writing, rather than a presentation.

    It was an interesting process. It depends on which department you are interviews for, but most of the questions were to fit and experience questions. The office environment seemed very upbeat and everyone seemed to genuinely be good colleagues .

    Administrative Assistant III Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at UC Irvine.

    Interview Details

    Applied via their website and was called rather quickly. Set up an interview with the Director of the program that week. Immediately after finishing the interview with the Director, I was taken to the neighboring coworker's office and sat for another interview with her. I was also walked around the office being introduced to others. I believe this is so that everyone can get a feel for your fit, even if they aren't directly interviewing you. A few days later, I was invited back for a third and final interview with the most senior colleague which ending up being very casual and conversational. It was definitely the easiest interview of the the three.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at UC Irvine.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very simple and straightforward. They just asked how I would teach the course I was applying to teach and I told them and they wanted lots of past references to talk to about my teaching experience. I had to give examples of my teaching methodology and samples of past courses taught with samples of materials and past student evaluations. It was not hard it was just tedious. Good luck!

    In order to be considered for an interview a resume must be submitted to the professor. If the professor likes your resume be ready to answer questions about the projects/experience you have had before. During the interview the professor measures up your personality and how you react under pressure with different types of questions. Also, specific questions can be asked about anything you put on your resume.

    Tutor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at UC Irvine.

    Interview Details

    The LARC office sends out an email to all students with GPAs above 3.25 who also did exceptionally well in specific subjects. The student then has a certain amount of time to fill out an application, which includes his/her unofficial transcript and two faculty recommendations. Turn in the application as soon as possible, especially if your GPA is closer to 3.25, because a big part of the decision to invite the applicant for an interview comes from the early submission time of your application. The interview is a group interview, with about 2-3 other applicants and is pretty relaxed. My interviewer emphasized relaxation and no judgement throughout the interview. They ask questions ranging from what do you think are three characteristics a great tutor should have to would you be open to hang out with other tutors and attend LARC socials? They care about providing a sense of community and understanding in the LARC program because that's really how a tutor should be with his/her students.
