I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University

Interview

The interview was more of a conversation. There were not many questions asked of me, we mostly just discussed the job responsibilities. The job was as described when applying, so no surprises.

1 informal phone screen, never heard back from CMU in 3 months, despite contacting the recruiter 4 times during that time. Even called the hiring manager and heard nothing until a month AFTER the position was already filled

15 minutes total, very quick, general questions What is your experience? Why this program? What are your goals? Etc. If you do some basic preparation ahead of time you’ll be fine. A lot of questions will be asked off of your resume so make sure you give them a great resume to look at

I applied online. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University

Interview

Applied online. Received call to screen and then in person interview. The process was okay. Normally just a general conversation, not much in the way of testing for aptitude. It seems like the interview is just to see if the hiring manger likes you or not.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) in Mar 2021

Interview

Interview setup through a recruiter, the feedback they gave my recruiter was so bad I'm suprised the recruiter didn't drop me, I ended up writing what I actually said in response to her forwarding their feedback because it was so misconstrued.

There’s a part one. If they like you, you get a part 2 with different members. Very nice group of of people who are friendly and they are open and welcoming. They did not seem judgmental. You could tell they liked their jobs. Seems like a great team and they want you to feel comfortable.

They asked about my previous experiences in the relevant engineering fields including publication papers, research experiences, and internship experiences. Other misc questions were also asked but not super important. Hope you will get into CMU as a future phd student.
