    Administrative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the job the last week of June. I went on an interview in July. It is now August and no one has reached out about whether or not I will be offered the position but at this point I seriously doubt it. The main issue I have is that they pre-checked my references. This is the first time that this has ever happened to me and it put me in a very awkward position with my current supervisor. Then after my interview they re-advertised the job and didn't bother to let the people who'd been interviewed know that they were no longer under consideration. I think the combination of pre-checking my references and then not having anyone reach out and just let me know I wasn't being considered any longer when the department re-advertised the position (after I'd interviewed) was unprofessional and rather inconsiderate. I totally understand that you don't get an offer for everything that you interview for but lack of communication is unprofessional.

    No interview, I got TA position when I got accepted to the program. Beside GRE results, I had to submit motivation letter and resume. The letter showed why I am the perfect fit, how will I contribute from the program and how will the program contribute from me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very professional, yet comfortable. Ithe flowed more as a conversation than an interview as we discussed research and career goals and what the specific position would mean in the terms of experience. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and the interviewer got back to me as quickly as possible. Overall, very professional.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in November 2016.

Interview involved a presentation and then follow-up questions. It lasted a little over an hour. I was given a job offer a month or so later. It took quite a while to hear from them initially.

    Simple, questions were the expected ones. People was friendly and to the point. Good description of the job.

    First interview was by phone followed by an in-person interview. The in person interview was on a panel format including all members of the program. Each of them had a chance to make a question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at North Carolina State University.

    Interview

    There was no interview. I am simply writing this because I want to look at the reviews for other jobs on this site. You start out making like 8.50 and if you do enough of the training hours and tutor for enough hours, then you can make more. It tops out at around 11.50 or something like that. I quit because it's not all that great and can be frustrating.
