    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (more than 5 years)


    Being a graduate student provided lots of opportunities to work independently or to collaborate with diverse co-workers. Seminars and social hours provided plenty of time to interact with the rest of the department


    Really not much to complain about, the pay isn't great I suppose but you are working towards a degree so I think it's worth it

    Interview Details

    Received call from HR rep. Interviewed with him for 30 minutes. He was very good with following up. Recommended me to for department interview. Heard back 5 weeks later for interview. While I was waiting for my interview in the office had another person walk up to the person who was interviewing me and asked whether I was her friend who she was giving the job to. Immediately knew I wasn't getting the job and I was just the prerequisite interview you bring in before hiring your friend.
