    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very casual. First a phone interview, then was invited for an in-person interview about a week later. Small department with people who had worked together for many years. I suspect they were looking for a specific personality or fit as they worked very closely and had a system down that they preferred for day to day operations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I met with my would-be boss in my would-be lab. The interview process was fairly casual and quick. He asked me specific questions about my lab experience and other job experience. He spoke about his research the most because it's important that I find it interesting before I accept the positions. I think my references helped seal the interview process.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at University of Arizona in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted via email for a phone interview about 3 weeks later. There was a slight mix up on UA's side on the day of the interview so we rescheduled for later in the week. This threw me off. We had everything in writing confirming both date and time and they didn't double check their calendars. I spoke to the potential manager and her supervisor. I haven't heard back from this one and there are no status updates on their website but it's been a month so I assume I wasn't selected.

    Interview Questions

    • Provided background about the position and then asked about my background and experiences with similar programs, conflict resolution, strengths, short term and long term goals. They also asked about my flexibility as this position involved traveling and evening/weekend hours.   Answer Question
