    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Interview was quick and easy, more of a formality than anything. They just give you a quick call on the phone to ask about your resume and applicable experience. After a chat they accept most applicants because there is a very high turnover rate for student callers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied for another position at the university, which was filled internally. I got an email from HR asking for a phone interview later that week. A week later, I received an email asking me to pick a time for in-person. The process lasted four hours and required me to meet with groups of people at different times. It was very different and much longer than any interview I've ever had, but I enjoyed it enough to accept the offer a week later.
