    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was really easy! I was surprised at how nice my interviewer was (my supervisor) and even though she came thirty minutes late, she apologized and the interview went rather quick. Not difficult at all and I would recommend applying before the summer since I assume it is less competitive to get an interview. They basically told me their expectations they have from me and job duties.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UCLA.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the department within a week of submitting an online application. She asked for a phone interview the same day (she emailed at 11am and asked to chat after 3pm).

    The interview took 30 minutes. She went through a list of questions and it wasn't engaging at all.

    I sent a thank you email the same day and heard back from her right away.
