    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview and the date was set for two weeks from the date i received the call. The day I went for the interview I was interviewed by the person I had spoken with on the phone as well as one more person. They asked about 7-8 questions, all basic questions, and afterwards I walked over to another building where I had to take a data entry test. The overall process of interview and test were very easy. I did my interview today so I am still waiting on a response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I've been to 3 interviews for RA positions now, and common questions include: "What are your plans for the future?", "What is your previous research experience?", "What aspect of research do you find most appealing?", "What are you hoping to learn from this experience?", "What was your GPA?". Most of the questions will be pulled off of your resume and will be personalized. For example, "Tell me about your independent study Junior year." At the interview they are basically just trying to inform you in detail about what the position entails, while also trying to get a feel for your qualifications and interests. I haven't come across a question I couldn't answer, so don't stress. It's a lot easier then it seems. Good luck!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Decatur, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in May of 2016. Received an E-mail from the hiring manager in mid-July asking if I was still interested. An in-person interview was scheduled for the following week. The interview process was very straightforward and relaxed. Both interviewers had pages with questions and each took turns asking. Most of of the interview questions were behavioral and the hiring manager explaining the desire for S.T.A.R. style responses (situation, task, action, results). They also described the department and the general duties of the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had a great phone interview with the hiring committee and was offered an on-campus interview a couple of weeks later. I drove the 5 hours there and paid for a hotel on my dime. The interview was conducted in the HR building and lasted 30 minutes total including the 5 minute pitch I was asked to prepare. I walked away feeling dissatisfied. I was not offered the position, but would have hesitated to take it anyway. That is not enough time to get to know someone, for either the employer or myself. If this search was just a formality for an internal hire, please do not invite graduate students and not offer reimbursement for expenses.
