    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Virginia Commonwealth University.

    Interview

    I had dinner with search committee the night before. Because I had previously worked at the university I did not take a tour of the university. I had a full day interview which included a one hour presentation on my area of work. The interview process was very smooth, and I had time for breaks. They also provided lunch for me and the current employees.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It took awhile to hear back from HR after you send your application but the first thing they do is contact you and ask when would be the best time for an interview. I had a panel interview where there were multiple people from the facility who interviewed me. Only one person asked the questions, who was the director, and everyone else also wrote down notes on their thoughts for your responses. About 2-3 weeks after the interview, I was able to start.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Virginia Commonwealth University.

    Interview

    I applied in the first week of December, contacted the HR manager and followed up on the application. I called to find out when the position was getting filled and if I could schedule an interview. The HR manager asked me what position I applied for, I responded and hadn't heard back. I resent the email detailing the position I applied for and never heard back. It's been almost two months since I applied and I hadn't been contact so I emailed her. Very rude and inconsiderate to not notify anyone. Today I checked the position and it has been filled... for two weeks, despite me checking last week. They forgot to update the log and wasted two weeks of my time. The worst part is, I went to college here- beautiful how they treat their alumni like a paycheck and don't both to help. I will never pay alumni fees to them again nor will I recommend the school to ANY potential employee or student. VERY INCONSIDERATE HR TEAM.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Efficient. Asked about past experience and knowledge relevant to working with people with disabilities. Felt like a conversation more than anything. Fairly informal in terms of setup. They needed staffing ASAP so I don't know if this is the norm for them.

    Interview

    Very smooth interview process that started with a request for interview after I submitted my application and resume online. The interview was the traditional panel type interview with basic questions ranging from "Why I want to work there" to "What to you know about online security". Nothing too difficult. Very friendly interviewers that made atmosphere fun and encouraging.
