    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UCLA (UCLA, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was an individual interview with five of their employees and Took about and hour. This was my first ever interview in my professional field so I didn't know what to expect. The interviewers were very nice and the questions being asked were pretty general. In the last 15 mins they started asking me technical questions and they where not that hard either.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was called one week after submitting my online application for a phone interview. I received an invitation for an in person interview the next day. When I arrived to the interview I was given a computer task to complete. After I completed that task, an interviewer stepped in to show me a new task to complete. Finally I was taken to a conference room where I was interviewed for what felt like an eternity. The questions were endless and every question had a follow up question and another follow up question. I felt like I was interviewing for a government job.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UCLA in January 2016.

    Interview

    About a month long process (pretty quick for a University process actually). The hiring manager was very informative and kept me updated throughout the entire process. I had a phone interview first followed by a Skype interview and then a third phone interview.

    Very reasonable. It's a University so there isn't a ton of room for negotiation but the benefits and offer are great.
