    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UNC Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received a call after 3 weeks. I had a phone interview. One week later I had an onsite interview. I interviewed with two teams of 3 people for about one hour each. The questions were behaviorally based. The director lost interest and made it know by her comments towards the end. Seemed like she wanted a lay down and take it type person. Too headstrong you won't make it in.

    Interview

    Typical yet thorough. Just be yourself, personable, and professional. A sense of humor is important while demonstrating a balanced work/life ethic. Don't embellish and ask questions of the panel about both corporate and personnel endeavors. Show that your human. Establish your leadership style and see if there's a match across the panel and potential co-workers.

    The process was incredibly slow as it was months before I was called for an interview. I was phone screened by 4 people asking basic questions about the position. I was not invited for an onsite interview.

    Interview

    You are not required to take an interview. Teaching assistant decisions are made with offer to to attend graduate program. Decisions made by your individual department, then ratified by the graduate school. If you receive an offer of admission you will be a teaching assistant unless you are also offered a fellowship to attend. This will relieve you of teaching assistant duties and allow you more time to focus on your work.

    Applied online, phone interview and panel interview. I was told I was "meeting" with two people for my phone interview, but I was not informed of the panel interview. The process was somewhat lengthy due to the multiple background checks.

    There wasn't a negotiation phase, because I was offered the highest amount in the salary range that was offered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UNC Chapel Hill in January 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online. Arrive early because parking can be an issue. Initial in-person interview was with 3 people- the team leads and their manager. Second in- person interview was with 10 team members. All were welcoming, informative, and professional. During both, interviewers took turns asking scripted questions. Be prepared- their questions cover a wide range and are behavioral event interview style questions. They all allowed me to ask questions and answered them openly.
