    I interviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL) in January 2010.

    It was easy. The primary investigator invited me to interview, and scheduled for a convenient time. After our interview, he gave me a tour of the facility, introduced me to team members, and took time to answer my questions. The HR liaison for the department very kindly took care of numerous administrative tasks for me such as scheduling employee orientation. Benefits were easy to set up, as it is a guided online process.
