    Graduate Teaching Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Auckland (Auckland (New Zealand)).

    Interview

    Interview process was easy, but I was called to a different campus than where classes were to be held. I sent my CV via email and they screened it out of maybe 40 odd applications. They said they would call me by the evening indicating whether I get the job or not, but I did not receive any response to my follow up emails or calls, which was a bit odd I guess.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions were asked like what are your interests and why would you be interested in teaching. Are you okay checking exam papers if you're not selected for tutorship.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Auckland (Auckland (New Zealand)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There wasn't really an interview for my department (Science), you just had to have a high GPA - probably above 7.5 and someone gives you an email invitation to apply for the role

    Next you're asked to input the hours you're free to work, which roles you'd prefer to work (Lab demonstrator, marker etc) and the papers you can teach.

    That's about it, although we were told that getting this invitation doesn't guarantee a role - it really depends on the demand of each paper. After that it was silence on their end until I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What hours are you free to work?
      Which papers are you able to teach?
