    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Coordinator, Grants and Contracts Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Interview Details

    There was a brief phone interview, where I was asked some preliminary questions about my experience and work ethic. I was also asked what my salary requirement was at this point. The phone interview was followed by an invitation to visit campus, to which they university kindly paid the airfare. This second interview was essentially two steps, one with a staff committee and another with faculty. Everyone was gracious (breakfast was catered!) and also some very good questions were asked.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe the format of my typical monthly grant funding report. Tough one.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The offer came in way too low and there was virtually no room for negotiation. This is common for university work, at least for staff. But I was still disappointed. I suspect the department was capped by the previous person's salary.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview questions, took a long time to get a response. They later hired their own person whom they wanted. The interview process was just to fulfill the equal opportunity requirements. I later learnt that most positions at UIC that are advertised are fake and they have an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you good at training and mentoring senior staff in systems as we have people with 20-25 years experience at UIC and don't have the inclination to learn anything.   Answer Question
