    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The University of Alabama.

    Interview

    I applied for the job, received an email the next day to schedule an interview, had the interview (which was very easy), and was notified the very next day that I had received the job. Overall, it was a very simple process. The interviewers made me feel very comfortable by describing their research concentrations to me, and then we casually discussed where I could possibly fit in.

    Interview

    The process is very nice. Interviewees take you very seriously and are very aware of the job requirements. The time frame is pretty lengthy. It took quite a while to hear back for final selections. I had several friends who did not get a position as an RA and they were not told they were not selected--it was just silence.
