    Financial Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I had already completed a phone screen for another position with Stanford prior to this in-person interview which is why I think I didn't have to do a phone interview (it was the same HR recruiter for both positions). However, I feel like it might have been better if a phone interview had been conducted, since I got the impression that my lack of relevant experience kept me from progressing further past this interview - something that would have come up in a phone interview...

    Investigator II Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a campus recruitment. I have 30 minutes of talk/chat with the two interviewers. I didn't prepare any power point slides, hence it didn't go well. I would say, if I get a second chance, I wouldn't screw it up.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Stanford University.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly straightforward. I knew someone who already worked there and was able to get my resume in the right hands. If you research the department you will be working for and go over general interview questions you should be fine.

    Interview

    Very thorough and intelligent process. I felt that the interview had been constructed to show as much as possible about prospective candidates. A project was required and it was not easy.
