    Easy Interview

    Interview

    They accept you before the interview, so the interview process is more a benefit for you to choose a team to join. This is not a stressful interview, they put you at a hotel and take you to a chain brewery.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    There was an online application. Then if you were qualified you were asked back for an interview. The interview took place in-person, with just one person. The person was who your future supervisor will be. Really relaxed and stress-free environment. Fairly easy interview questions. I was offered the position within a week.

    Interview

    Very quick. Couple of phone calls and an in person interview. Was quite informal for most of it. Mainly went based off of your application. Hiring depends upon the funding that they have available, so you may be a great candidate but they just don't have the funding right then.

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Could not even find the building cause of the 9 different constructions going on and I had arrived almost 40 minutes early. If the whole front of your building is being replaced you might want to give the person interviewing a heads up so they are aware. The HR dept would not let me reschedule. Totally ridiculous and HR won't even communicate with you, sending you scripted responses. Don't you dare think for a second you were going to get inside the impenetrable fortress that is the U of MN!

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    a phone interview. You presented your works. They asked questions in your presentation.
    Then they told you what they were doing. The main questions are about your research and related projects. Not so difficult because they did not ask detailed questions but the big picture.
