    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the University of Michigan's very simple and easy-to-use Student Employment website. About a week after I submitted, I received an email inviting me to an interview on site and checking if I was okay to work certain days and times of the week. I took this as a positive sign, and sure enough, the interview was very straightforward; I think they were just looking to hire people right away, and they anticipated that for many students, this would be their first job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at University of Michigan in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact within 2 weeks of applying for the job. First interview via phone, second and third via videoconference. I was an out of state candidate and I think the second and/or third could have been onsite for local, in-state candidates. The interview chair kept me up-to-date on the various stages of the interview. All three stages of the interview were complete within 2 weeks and a decision made witihin a further two weeks for a total of 1 month since initial contact. Overall, very pleasant experience interviewing with UMich.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a semester-long research project with the School of Nursing. The faculty member there was very courteous and prompt with scheduling my interview. I was among a stack of around 30+ resumes for four positions. I heard back in a few weeks after she interviewed all of the candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was a straight-forward set of behavioral questions. Most were specific to the job description. For example: tell me about when you were assertive, or tell me about what's not on your resume. It was a good experience in interview practice as she used questions I've seen before. It ultimately came down to previous work experience as many candidates were interested in the learning experience the job provided.   Answer Question
