Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Washington State University (Spokane, WA).

Interview

Required about a year of nursing experience. They are almost always short on graduate TAs in their nursing program. Tuition waiver covers all in-state tuition for each semester employed. I expressed interest in the TA position to the director of undergraduate nursing and they were happy to take me on as a teaching assistant, virtually no questions asked beyond ensuring I had at least a year of nursing experience.

Interview Questions

  • Must maintain full-time status to maintain TA status. There were no interview questions, I was hired solely because of my status as grad student and 2+ years of nursing experience. Because of the lax requirements for becoming a TA, many graduate teaching assistants were severely unfit for their teaching roles.   1 Answer

Negotiation

No negotiation for my TA position. 20 hours per week earned me a full tuition waiver plus minimal health and dental insurance.
