    Research Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very short, most of the question are technical related to projects and lab techniques. Job description did not match the requirements she was asking for while interviewing, I did answered all of them. There is no reply after the interview for feedback even after several followup emails, which I felt was not professional.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ann Arbor, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Initially, a telephone interview...I missed that email, so the hiring manager was fine with my advancing to the next level and covering the information there. That was cool of her. So the next interview was with three people. I did not expect that. A significant amount of time was spent in their telling me about advancement opportunities...none of this "we expect you to commit to this position for two years" stuff. Wonderful. They gave me realistic expectations of the job and were very comfortable to talk to, not at all high pressure. Next step was with faculty. They, too were low key and welcoming. I did not get the first position, but where I landed is actually a better fit where I can really use my talent and "get out of my lane" to enhance my role and make it far more interesting. No one is threatened by that, in fact, they love it! There is not stifling talent at UM. Go blue!
