    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brown University.

    Interview

    The interview was done through Zoom and I interviewed with a panel of three people. The technology was a little confusing to figure out and caused a few hiccups during the interview. The interview lasted maybe 20 minutes and was not particularly difficult. All the questions were pretty standard.

    Interview

    I received a phone call but no voice message. I checked my email and they invited me to come in for an interview. It was probably one of the most unprofessional interviews ive ever been to. One lady was on her laptop the entire time and I could tell that she wasn't listening. I assume she was typing up my answers or looking at my resume but whenever she looked up, i could tell she was lost. The other lady had a packet of questions. She was writing down my answers (sometimes) and would accidentally repeat a question to the ones she didnt write an answer to. In between each question, she would ask me if I had any questions so I felt like i was pressured to ask something. I was asked if I had questions at least 8-10 times (im not kidding). I was prepared for everything they asked me but THEY WERENT prepared which i think is also important.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the website. I came in for an one-on-one interview that went well, they asked mainly behavioral questions. The regular process is a group interview and then an one-on-one interview with select candidates, but since the group interview was when I went abroad they accommodated me by allowing me to do an early one-on-one interview.
