    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UC Davis.

They gave me a sheet of paper with about fifteen questions to review, and began asking immediately. The questions were mainly aimed at specific examples of past experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I've had a few interviews before and they've all been very casual. They always ask me about my previous experience. Most importantly, don't be too focused on the technical stuff such as listing your achievements and what you can do. Mention them of course, but since you'll be someone's assistant and you'll probably be working alongside them, that someone is generally looking for an assistant that they can get along with. So be natural and confident. Oh and ALWAYS have questions prepared. Not just basic stuff like what are my responsibilities, go on their lab's website and figure out questions based on their research!

    Staff Research Associate II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA).

    Interview

    You have to make out a profile to use their online system. Once that has been done, you can look for available job listings. What's nice is that they keep you updated on the process if you check online. However, you never know if you get an interview unless they contact you directly. Once contacted, they set up a panel-interview where 2-3 people asked questions round-robin style. After the interview process was complete, they called my references. It took about 10 days from the time of interview before I was contacted about whether or not I got the position. After that, I went into the office and signed all pertinent paperwork and then began my new job.

    Interview Questions

    • Aside from job-duty specific questions, they asked things like, what would your co-workers say about you, what do you find frustrating in a job, etc.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is easy, they just want to make sure that you feel comfortable about being a Chinese language tutor and you have enough knowledge about Chinese. A lot of their students are leaning very basic level Chinese, so you have to patient to these people. They have some very nice teacher at their language department . I took the job at summer and I help about 10 students about their speaking and writing. Overall good experience.
