Research Assistant I Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UTHealth (Houston, TX) in December 2016.

Interview

They called me to know a little bit more about me. I was not offered an actual interview since they are looking for commitment of more than 2+ years. They were not interested.
The job description is very vague and doesn't say into what research lab you will be applying to, just department.

    Interview

    I met directly with the PI. She was very relaxed in the interview process. The interview was approximately 20 minutes in length. After which she showed me around the lab and introduced me to the equipment used frequently in the laboratory. Immediately following our chat, she invited me to work at the lab, but that I would need to meet with the supervisor to hold a final interview before being officially offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions revolved around my relevant work experience and what I was looking to get out of future role. As the PI was familiar with a professor I'd worked with in the past, she was more relaxed in the questions she asked me.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UTHealth in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied via the website. Took 2 weeks to get confirmation that the team received my info. Then the next day I got an interview request via email.

    Went to my interview where the head researcher explained the focus of the study. Researcher asked me questions related to my experience. This interview felt more like a chance to explain my interests and experience. Very comfortable. Took about 30 minutes.

    Then the next 30 minutes I was interviewed by the research coordinator. This second interview was standard interview process as in coordinator asked the typical questions found in an interview. (what are your strengths, what are your weaknesses, etc).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UTHealth (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very relaxed. I heard about an opening through a flyer at my university. They just want to ask about past projects and why you want to work in the lab. Professor then discusses ongoing projects in lab. Past experience required may vary depending on the type of lab you work in

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UTHealth (Houston, TX) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The Interview was extremely easy. I really didn't answer many questions. It seemed from the beginning that they were trying to sell me the position. I believe the salary range is under 25K. I was emailed for a second interview with the main research Doctor however I was given little notice And was not able to make it to the interview. Since there are many research programs I cannot say that the interview process will be any way similar.
