    Interview

    Most positions at the University of British Columbia are union positions and, as such, priority is given to individuals who already work at UBC. Once they have gone through any internal applications, they will start considering external applicants. They will do an in person interview, usually with a small panel of interviewers from the department that posted the job ad.

    Senior Invigilator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    there is no interview or standardized hiring process. The coordinator makes a judgement, sometimes in consultation with other senior invigilators, as to who should be promoted from the regular invigilator staff. There are no criteria specified. Invigilators are not asked. There are no performance reviews. It is a very haphazard situation.

    Interview

    No phone interview, just email contacts between me and the professor. Discussed a few things about thesis and current work. Also talked about the future plan after graduation. I think it depends on which professor's group you are applying. Some may just take a look at your CV and publication. Some may give a phone interview.
