    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UC Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    3 on 1 interview that lasted an hour, which included a mock 5 minute presentation to high schoolers that was at the end. About 10 questions which they let me review 15 minutes before the interview. Interview was round robin style. Formal, polite, one of the interviewers was really friendly while the other two were intimidating. Took way too long to hear about an offer, about a month. Was a temporary position.
