    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was not to difficult. Apply for the position then go meet the professor if he replies to your email. Many professors will not reply to your email, I don't know why. They either don't check their email, are to lazy when it comes to reading or replying to emails, are just bad people in general, or some potentially valid excuse(doubtful).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process took some time as the Institute looks into new resumes depending upon their need. I had applied in August and I got a call in the last week of September. The interview process was very smooth and precise. It was completely related to my resume. The usual questions of Technical Support - computer troubleshooting, blackboard programming and usage, hard drive troubleshooting, HDD encryption, Network printer setup, Assembly of computers and new laptops etc. Certain specific questions about behavior - a hypothetical situation of how I can resolve multiple issues, how I would tackle a problem given I don't know the remedy for the issue etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Two good two hour interviews with my boss over Skype. Postdoctoral Research Associate opportunities are often sent around researchers contacts lists and often aren't obviously visible online. Similarly I was refereed to this post by a Prof I know at another Chicago university. My process was a presentation of my previous work to date and then so chat about the type of science we wanted to do at UIC.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The initial communication from the hiring manager came quickly after submitting my application. I went through a Skype interview and at the end we set up a face to face interview in office. I was told to set aside three hours for the interview. The face to face interview was with all members of the department. I met with either one or two people at a time in 30 minute phases. They all seemed very pleasant and I could tell they were a tight knit group. The interview process took around two and half months, which was unexpected because of the time frame they laid out in the face to face interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interview process is an overnight stay (arrive for dinner with staff, student staff, and faculty staff), then interviews with various staff (Resident Directors through Director) until around 3PM. Decision really lies with Director, perhaps Assistant/Associate Director, and MAYBE Area Coordinator.

    Interview Questions

    • Question about programming model - UIC does not have a program model, but instead desires residents to conduct programming after 6 weeks of intensive programming by student staff.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a very small raise in salary. Salary in Residence Life jobs, especially starter ones like Resident Director, is very inflexible.
