    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in August 2016.

    A fairly simple interview process was utilized: one consisting of an entirely online question and answer portion and another being a face-to-face interview.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First you have to take the GMAT. If you can, get it waved (check out the website for details) because it really speeds up the whole process. When filling out your application, make sure you carefully craft your essays, personal statements, and letter recommendations. These things really matter. Do your homework. After you submit the application, wait a month until they ask you to interview. It can be in person or online. It took 30 min. They asked 10 questions and allowed me to ask questions as well.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at North Carolina State University.

    Interview

    There is no formal interview, but you need to get good grades from the professor you want to work with. He/she will give you a small amount of work and expect you do that. You must be eager to learn about his/her research field and show that you will be available to work for long period of time (a few semesters or years). If you have already had a publication at the same or related field, it is a big plus. However, this all highly depends on the professor, how many students he/she has and his/her funding.

    The hiring and interview process aren't too bad. The questions are basic and try to learn about your dealings with leadership in the residence halls. It seems to mainly serve to get you acquainted with interviews—most applicants get an interview regardless of how good their initial interviews were.
