I interviewed at University of California Berkeley

Interview

I was invited to interview, and I provided some available times as requested. I never got a confirmation email. In my experience of doing interviews and regular work meetings, everyone I've encountered so far has confirmed a time before calling. No one else has ever just picked one of my available times without informing me which specific times you'll call me at. Unless it's a cold call, which I don't think it was meant to be because this was supposed to be an interview. They usually happen at scheduled times. I replied to their email very politely and apologetically for the miscommunication (though hardly any fault of my own) -- and got no response.

Interview process was fairly straight forward. The interviewer was laid back and it didn't feel too formal. We talked about past experience and any questions I had about the job.

Really laid back interview process. As much as your skills are important I think employers are also looking to see if you would be a great fit for the team.

Very brief, mostly about my past teaching experience. I also shared a little bit about my favorite classes in college and what I could bring from those experiences. As a past GSI at Berkeley, I found the interview for the reader to be very easy.

Super quick and fast turn around. I was hired last minute so the paper work took a month (after my appointment) to be finished, but if you have a contact, the process usually goes fast.
