    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of British Columbia in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview with the school director, administrator, and 3 chairperson. About 9 questions were asked and I felt unprepared for all questions, probably because it was my first interview with such a big university.

    Each person asked about one to two questions. Most of the questions are behavioural questions. The school administrator was in charge of HR and therefore questions from that person were more challenging.

    Questions were both practical and behavioural.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I first received an email to set up a phone interview. They were very accommodating and flexible and even asked me to suggest a couple of times that would best suit me. I found the interview a bit tough over the phone because there were two people asking questions and I'm much more comfortable face to face. They asked the usual icebreaker 'Tell me about yourself' and other fairly straightforward screening questions. The second interview included doing a writing 'test'.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It was a very lengthy process with four people in the interview room and whole lot of complicated and long questions. The interview is difficult but I learnt later that it's university policy to ask these long winded questions.

    Interview

    Initial communication was positive. The interview was a panel format, and it did not appear that the interviewers were very well prepared in terms of either describing the requirements of the position, nor having made anything more than a cursory review of my resume.
