    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview went fairly smoothly. They were very open to a flexible schedule as they knew students apply for the position. This helped out tremendously, as I was still able to go to class and study.

    Administrative and Fiscal Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Hawai'i (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    Panel interview with four people. About one hour long. Each person took their turn to ask specific questions relating to your resume and experience. Then the questions got a little more detailed, asking specifics on how you would handle situations, why they should hire you, what are your best and worst qualities, what do you know about the Center and the University. The interview itself was pretty standard, although I really thought that having four people on my panel was a little intimidating. You feel very 'put on the spot'. In the end, it was fine. The nerves settled about 20 minutes into it.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe how you manage several different projects at the same time.   Answer Question

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Hawai'i (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    Skype interview with Principal Investigator. She called me on skype and asked me a number of questions regarding why I wanted the position and told me about her research interests. Things went down hill for me when she started asking about the ring she could see on my finger, my marriage status, and what my husband would be doing. It didn't come off like friendly chit-chat, but rather that I was being evaluated based on my marriage status (marriage=bad). I was highly qualified for this position, and I'm certain that she didn't call me back because of my marriage status. Which is deplorable, but I was turned off that she would even ask me that so I was fine to not be considered further.

    Interview Questions

    • I see you have a ring, are you married? What is your husband going to do if you get this job (we would be relocating to Hawaii)?   1 Answer

    The process is different depending on which department you work for. I applied for the same position in two different places. Sometimes your interview will be all technical. I ended up having an additional interview that was more customer-service related. Just know your stuff :)
    I had nice interviewers, thank goodness.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question I've ever had (and it wasn't difficult in a hard/easy way, but in a what do I do?! way) was when I was asked how I would act if I was working with the angry President of the school, but had to leave due to scheduling conflict. It was just awkward.   1 Answer
