    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at UC Riverside in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Bring you in for an interview and three to four people usually ask you questions. They ask you about why you think you would make a good floor supervisor and then ask you a set of randomized questions that you respond to. Some of them are easy and some of them require thought but they are not unfair in anyway.

    Teacher's Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Riverside, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Riverside, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UC Riverside in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Being a TA at UC Riverside, specifically the engineering department, was a good experience that was fairly easy to get into. If you have a good enough GPA as an undergrad (3.5+) at an ABET accredited university and demonstrate financial need, then receiving a teacher's assistant position is not hardest in the slightest. Just a bit of paperwork and training is required to pursue this opportunity.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at UC Riverside in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    It is a little wired to talk about this interview right now. It happened 3 years ago. The hiring manager just asked a few questions about teaching experience. If you are a graduate student, there is no problem that you can do TA. And your English should be understandable.
