    Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UMass Boston in April 2018.

    Interview

    Brought me in for two interviews, and called my references and left a voicemail. When the references called back, they did not return the call. When I followed up many times via email regarding the recruitment process, they ignored me for months. I finally checked with HR and they said the role was filled. Very unprofessional.

    HR called and offered the job, asked me when I wanted to start. There wasn't much negotiating because it's a state school and the salary was posted on the ad.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UMass Boston (Boston, MA).

    the process is pretty simple, the only thing you need is meeting your PI. and the department will decide which course you will teach. the thing gets awful is the salary, it is very low, compared to the other school. and TA has been signed more and more responsibilities with a decreasing salary.
