    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brandeis University.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone interview which went very well. The interviewer asked typical first round interview questions such as why are you interested in this position, what strengths would you bring to this position, etc. The interview flowed more as a conversation rather than an interview which was comforting.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brandeis University.

    Interview

    I emailed a professor asking if there was a research technician position available. Two weeks later I heard back and was brought in. I was a first year undergraduate student at the time, and they knew I had limited research experience. The interview focused on if I was willing to be trained. You won't necessarily be paid unless you have work study depending on the lab's funding, but the research experience is invaluable

    The Graduate research team leader came to our class actually. Because I am a computer science student and the I was taking 3d animation class. The research that I am doing is directly related to computer science so the professor came to our class telling us about the opportunity. Then there was an in person interview after a week. Then they told me after three weeks that I had gotten the job. Then I had to do some paper work, formalities that the school requires new worker. After the paper work I was good to go. The process was quick.
