    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview

    I've had two different positions within this company and each time there was a long lag time between submitting my resume and being contacted for an interview; but once I was interviewed the offers were swift. I was interviewed by someone from human resources and then the primary investigator. The person from human resources was great and the interview process went smoothly.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was told that the salary was non-negotiable, so I didn't try to negotiate (silly me!).

    Senior Technical Training Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Medford, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tufts University (Medford, MA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Exhaustive. 2 days, 4 hours each. Large room. Behaviorial interviews where people not related to your job tried to figure out who you were...without smiling. Very smug. There was also a full-on presentation with addendees to see how you perform with a classroom with varying questions and abilities. I came prepared with my own material, equipment and script.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tufts University (Medford, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    HR called to schedule an interview soon after I applied online. 1 hour interview with HR went fine, no questions you wouldn't expect. Interview with hiring manager same day went ok, but chemistry wasn't perfect and when I asked what they liked about their job they said the benefits. Everyone I interacted with was nice though.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tufts University (Boston, MA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I found the people to be incredibly friendly and helpful. A guy from HR contacted me to schedule an interview, and made me feel really relaxed and comfortable (I'm usually much more nervous). I thought the interview with the PI also went well, he was really approachable and you could tell he cared about his research.

    Interview Questions

    • The PI asked me what I could bring to the table beyond my laboratory experience, which I hadn't given much thought to beforehand.   1 Answer
