    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UC Irvine (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Received a call to schedule a time for the interview. For a work study position, it was like any other interview. I was interviewed by the lab that I wanted to join. My interviewer and I sat in a quiet area and she printed out my resume and asked me behavioral/personal questions. Never asked about anything on my resume, but I had to take a basic chemistry quiz (dilutions only).

    Office Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UC Irvine.

    Interview

    Applied on their website. If they are interested in you, most communication is done by email. Received email asking if I was still interested in the position and a date was set to come in to meet with the department managers. Parking at the campus was a nightmare. Be prepared to spend more time looking for parking and paying for it than actually getting to the location. And they don't validate. Finally arrived at the office and was given a list of questions the interviewers were going to ask me. (Not sure if that applies to all departments.) Because of that, the interview went smoothly.
