    I have been working at University of Pittsburgh full-time (less than an year)


    Working as a undergraduate researcher at Pitt is a low-stress job with decent compensation. Depending on the lab you are in, you could be given a fair amount of agency when it comes to working on projects, but your mileage may vary.


    Pitt does not have the most advanced paperwork services so that can be a hassle at times. The overall pace of student research can be slow and underwhelming at times.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at University of Pittsburgh.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with Pitt through a phone screen which lasted about 30 minutes. Was fairly straightforward. Came to campus and spent full day interviewing. Interview included 30 minute presentation and several interview sessions with a variety of different groups of people. I then waited 6 months before receiving an offer. I confirmed later that this delay wasn't because I wasn't their first choice, it's because HR at Pitt is very slow - think sloths, riding a molasses river, in January.
