    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Missouri (Columbia, MO).

    Interview

    I suspect that the primary reason that I got this interview was because of internal connections, though I had to pass through HR screening first so I was qualified for the position. I found the whole process fairly painless, actually. The people I interviewed with were kind and supportive throughout the process. Other than the usual case of nerves, I found that this interview prepared me well for the job and for future interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was out of the ordinary for the field and most questions were fairly general. The questions were essentially the same for the phone and on-campus interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not attempt to negotiate as the offer was given as final and am unsure whether this would ultimately have been an option.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Missouri (Columbia, MO) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Overall, it was a very informal setting. I was sat down in the office of the professor who would be my advisor. We talked a lot about what my goals were as an intern there and he asked me a lot about my experiences. We discussed rules and proper functioning of my role as an intern and what events I was expected to attend. We discussed what hours I would work as well.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Missouri in September 2011.

    Interview

    Initial description of position in the interviews was very different than what the job and the co-worker situation actually turned out to be. After making an expensive and difficult move across the country for the job, I discovered in the first month the expectations were a moving target and unrealistic and that supervisors had no idea how to evaluate my type of work (research for businesses).

    Interview Questions

    • incompetent supervisors, vitriolic gatekeepers perpetuating groupthink among the management team, complete lack of trust and any real collaboration. Much like junior high.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    odd and hard to interpret. discovered later they had tried to hire someone else but couldn't agree on salary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Missouri (Columbia, MO) in November 2010.

    Interview

    It depends on the advisor you work under. For me I literally explained what I did as an undergraduate and was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There were no negotiations. Graduate research assistants receive a tuition waiver, health insurance subsidy (albeit the health insurance kind of sucks), and wound up with my monthly salary.
