    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First you meet with HR about your application and they ask you about your research experience, when you would be available to start working etc. Then you meet with lab members to get a sense of how the lab runs and what projects you would potentially be working on/ what your day to day would look like. Then it's back to HR for additional follow up.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied onlineto a couple of open positions. Was invited to interview with two different labs. Each lasting about an hour. One lab I met only with the fellow Research Assistants so it was very low key, while the other lab I met with multiple post docs, all separately, so had to repeat a lot of the same info. HR is super pleasant and helpful the entire time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was very straight forward and went very smoothly. First the lady from human resources reached out to me in regard to a phone interview that lasted 15 minutes where she explained to me the positions that were available at the children and family center and mentioned to me that she would pass my information along to the directors and if they were interested they would reach out to me. Needless to say about a week later they reached out to me through email asking if I would like to meet with them for an in person. Such an amazing group of directors that I have met. I am still awaiting feedback but overall it was a great process at Rockefeller!
