    Graduate Research Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Arkansas.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for grad school is mostly merit based, rather than question based. In the chemistry department, your undergraduate GPA, GRE score, and letters of recommendation have the most sway. I think in person interviews are only employed when the minimum requirements for acceptance are not met, but the department would like to increase enrollment. For the most part, you deal with office personnel who only know about the paper pushing side of things, not really the chemistry side of things.

    Administrative Specialist III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Arkansas.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is to meet first with the hiring committee (4 - 5 people), then with a group of potential co-workers who weren't on the hiring committee once you're a finalist (4 - 5 different people), then with the potential direct supervisor and the supervisor's boss once you're a final finalist. The interview by committee can be pretty nerve-wracking, but mostly they try to put you at ease.

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't really get any memorably difficult or unexpected questions; it was all pretty standard, except for the sheer number of people on the panel, which I'd never experienced before (I had been accustomed to 1:1 interviews). They seemed inexperienced at interviewing, so mostly they were taking turns reading questions for me from a list.   Answer Question
