    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New Haven, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Haven, CT
    Application Details

    The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Yale University in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Shortly after submitting my resume, I got a reply back confirming that the resume had been passed along. I then received an email requesting an interview a couple of days afterward. I was interviewed by a couple of people and I had the impression that it went pretty well overall. They were being positive and encouraging, but extremely vague on the timeline and I didn't hear from them for over five weeks, other than a brief non-informative reply back to my inquiry after three weeks. Later when I checked, they'd reposted the position with a totally different job description. I get that this happens, but they could have done a much better job of not leading candidates on and keeping them in unnecessary suspense.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yale University in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    It is a regular interview for postdocs. The professor came to meet me at the hotel, we had breakfast together, then we went to the lab to meet the rest. I first give a presentation of my previous research, which didn't go great. Then I talk to everyone in the lab, each for 30 minutes. The last one to talk is the professor. We then went to dinner and the whole thing finishes at 8:00.
