    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at University of Washington in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    10 minute phone interview. Took about 2-3 weeks to get called in for a panel interview after having asked for an update about my candidacy status. Panel interview consisted of 3 ppl. Some typical "what would you do if" questions along with questions related to the actual position.
    Took another 3 weeks to get an answering concerning a second interview. First request for an update went ignored by HR even though I was told to contact them if I did not hear from them by the end of the week of the interview. I waited one more week to ask about the second interview again, which finally got a reply that I had not been chosen for a second interview.
