    Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Washington, DC) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Original personal who was to interview me canceled 6 times and it was a revolving door of excuses as to each cancellation. This is just unacceptable for someone who is really looking for jobs.

    Interview

    it was in the same group so not much of an interview. but usually it involves a presentation of research experience and follow up questions, the skills are important than the exact work experience

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National University of Singapore.

    Interview

    This was for the PhD position at YLL School of Medicine. Regular PhD questions of why, what are your interests, post PhD plans; relocation to Singapore, potential lab interests. Easy enough. They specifically asked about the techniques I have learned. They also asked about grades.

    Interview Questions

    • One particular technique I had done two years ago. I managed to say the basics, but I honestly couldn't remember the details; as I'd done it only two.three times.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The office is super clean. The interviewer was very nice at the beginning but he gave some really tough requests later. I think they should make things more transparent to the public.

    Teaching Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The initial part of the application process was OK. The interview took about 1.5 months to come, but to be fair I applied quite early in the application cycle. The interview went well, and I was told they would get back to me with further steps. And then radio silence.

    For almost 3 months.

    Every time I emailed them to inquire on the progress of my application, they would say that they were still processing the application and that they would get back to me when they have news. They wouldn't give me a timeline as to when they would get back to me either.

    After 3 months, the semester started and I figured they weren't going to give me the job so I accepted another job offer. But the lack of courtesy to tell candidates that they weren't under consideration, even when they checked in via email, was extremely unprofessional. It left a very bad impression on me and would make me think twice about reapplying.
