    Application Details

    I applied 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 applied 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.

    Interview Questions
