    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Colorado in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview involved pretty standard interview questions. Met with quite a few different people on three different occasions, as well as a doctor who asked some tougher questions. Think of some good teamwork and customer service experiences before interviewing.

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Colorado (Boulder, CO) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Round table interview where department employees ask the standard interview questions regarding multi-tasking and previous learning experiences at work. The department did not properly explain how and who I was to meet.
    I was told I was the number one candidate. Asked if I could start immediately. Was told I would hear back within a day. The department head, who was my main contact, never called or contacted me to let me know that they decided to hire someone younger.

    Interview

    Typical interview process. The first interview seemed very formulaic, but the second interview was more laid back. They are great about following up with you quickly. I never had to wait more than a day to hear back.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Colorado (Boulder, CO) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process really depends on the research group you want to join in and the Professor you are working with. I would say the first few months of my RA employment were taken as a "interview process", as a long-term examination for my motivation on my research topics as well as my capability in solving scientific problems.
