    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Storrs, CT
    Anonymous Employee in Storrs, CT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at University of Connecticut in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview Details – Applied online and gave a video interview. Questions at glassdoor. Gave a technical interview few weeks later. Most of the questions are from glassdoor, could not answer 2-3 correctly maybe. I guess if you can not solve a problem you can ask the interviewer for hints and if you are wrong he tries to make you reconsider your answer. After the interview the interviewer asked me to ask questions about the position. Said he will forward my result and I will be hear from them in 2 weeks if they are interested. Checked application status after 10 minutes and found out that I was rejected.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Storrs, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Storrs, CT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at University of Connecticut in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position on the University Careers website. I didn't hear anything back from them for a few weeks which was concerning, but they eventually contacted me for a phone interview.

    The phone interview was scheduled for a week later and was with 5 individuals. They started off by introducing themselves. Next, I was asked a series of situational questions relating to how I would handle different problems. The main goal of these questions was to evaluate my critical thinking and problem solving skills. I think they also wanted to have an understanding of my knowledges of different web based/database technologies. After about 1.5 hours, the phone interview was complete and they said they would be in touch either way.

    Two days after the phone interview, I received a an email asking me to come in for an on-site interview in which I would provide an example of an advanced web application that I had developed. The next week I had the onsite interview with the same 5 people from the phone interview. It was a pretty welcoming interview compared to others that I've had. It was only 45 minutes long and primarily consisted of me demonstrating my application and discussing the design and implementation of the application.

    A week after the on-site interview I received an offer letter and accepted
