    Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Florida Gulf Coast University (Fort Myers, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy. I felt led on, as I interviewed over a computer program and then with a panel over the course of 3 months. I didn't even get a response back for weeks after the panel interview and then the position was posted again, as if no candidate was chosen. Most people do not have months and months to wait and see if they got a position. Being a truly qualified candidate, I was not pleased with this process.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked at least 15 - 20 questions in the panel interview.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Florida Gulf Coast University (Fort Myers, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    They do a candidate pool and will choose from those people as to who will get the job. You will go into a meeting room, and there will be a hiring panel who will ask you several different questions. This can be pretty intimidating if you have never been in that sort of situation before. Then if they like you the primary decision maker will ask you in for a one-on-one interview. You will also have to get your fingerprints taken and pass a level two background check. Don't worry about DUI's though :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Florida Gulf Coast University.

    Interview

    Usual process is phone contact, next a phone or skype interview, then an onsite interview which is almost always a panel of 3 to 8 people. In some departments you actually meet with several panels and individuals one after another over the course of a few hours. Fairly extensive no matter what department you are applying for, and I have applied for several.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Florida Gulf Coast University in May 2012.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Florida Gulf Coast University in May 2012.

    Interview

    When trying to get hired, it is best to talk to a professor or mentor about any potential spots open in their labs. Often times, some grants will be available that they can utilize them to help improve upon a topic. For me, I found a topic that I enjoyed that my professor was willing to pay me to explore.

    Interview Questions

    • The difficult question to ask is if you're comfortable without having a set schedule. Many times, I would have to tell myself to work a certain number of hours.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation involved asking the amount of hours I could work. Generally, you want to aim for around 20 hours.
