    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at University of Arizona in May 2014.

    Interview

    Team interview with departmental staff. They asked me about my resume, past work experiences, and attitudes in the workplace. We discussed duties and responsibilities for the position. The questions were geared towards understanding where I would fit in the office setting, which already had about 8-10 employees plus departmental faculty and students. Some faculty can be jerks, and the interviewers wanted to see how I would handle working with big egos and such.
