    I worked at Tufts University full-time (more than 5 years)


    I was in the Microbiology dept at Tufts Medical as a post doc. The dept is friendly and helpful. Interactions are easy and all are easy to approach. If you want to learn a new technique, use some equipment you just need to ask around.


    Very low post doc salary. Despite having two years of prior post doc experience I was counted as a new post doc and started at the lowest wage. The post doc lasted through the economic downturn and raises were minimal even though I asked if something could be done. Departmental administration team is the best. They did the best they could to see if they could get me a better salary but all raises at the time were prohibited. As a post doc, be aware of what you should be making and if you aren't, do something.

    I applied online – interviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview Details

    I've had two different positions within this company and each time there was a long lag time between submitting my resume and being contacted for an interview; but once I was interviewed the offers were swift. I was interviewed by someone from human resources and then the primary investigator. The person from human resources was great and the interview process went smoothly.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected interview questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was told that the salary was non-negotiable, so I didn't try to negotiate (silly me!).
