    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted via phone to schedule an in-person interview. The interview last 45 minutes to an hour with at least 15 minutes consisting of the interviewer telling me how low the pay would be and how stressful the department was. I was given a writing test at the end of the interview, and was called back two days later for a second in-person interview. The second in-person interview was disorganized and consisted of me facing a panel of the entire department; they each posed questions though no one was moderating so there were some long pauses between questions and answers. There was one interviewer present who did not seem to like my experience or answers and her body language, facial expressions, and responses were off-putting; the other interviewers were either friendly and engaging, or passive. The second interview lasted for 30-45 minutes.

    Interview Questions
