    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI).

    Interview

    Simple application that seemed like more qualifications were required than what I later discovered. Interview process was friendly and simple. I didn't receive any trick questions and it felt like my interviewer was doing her best to help me do well. It was a position that was mostly about sociability and responsibility, so there was no need to give an IQ test, and I appreciated that there was very little pressure.

    Interview

    Set up a couple of dates and times for the phone interview. Three people were on the call besides myself. After the introductions they said while they believed I was qualified for the position they wanted to make sure I knew what the maximum salary available for their position was. After I was informed of that, and was told that it was a non-negotiable number, I thanked them for their interest and time and the interview was over.

    There is no interview so I'm not sure what to say here. You just go to the Ratty (Sharpe Refectory) and fill out an application. Then you're immediately hired and sign up for shifts.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Met with faculty in the department throughout the day for about 30 minutes each. Also had plenty of time to inreact with graduate students and post-docs in the department. Free lunch and dinner with other grad students in the program. Overall it was quite casual. Most conversation is aimed at getting to know you and your interests/ fit for the program rather than trying to trip you up or test your technical or intellectual skills.

    Negotiation
