    Administrative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Oregon in January 2017.

    Interview

    It took a little over the month after the job posting closed to get notice of an interview. The interview process was great - very organized and thorough. The interview consisted of two staff and the director. They took turns asking pre determined questions (they gave me a printout of the questions). All three gave very informative answers to all of the questions I had. I also had about an hour of informal time with most of the other department staff - again, very informative.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult but the main focus of the position was a bit different than what I got from the job posting. So, I felt a little unprepared for a couple of questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process reflected well on the hiring department and search committee at the University. I applied online and heard from a committee representative a couple weeks later. The interviews occurred in two stages: an initial Skype conversation with the search committee and then, one month later, a day of departmental meetings/presentations in person in Eugene (expenses paid). Ultimately, I pursued another opportunity but was grateful for the positive interview experience.

    Interview Questions

    • A mix of behavioral and relevant technical questions (SQL, SAS, statistical inference and modeling, etc.)   Answer Question

    Interview

    Submitted a resume and was notified within a few weeks that a position had opened up. Very simple process and there was not very much paperwork. The office staff is amazing and very efficient at doing their job. Not a single complaint when it comes interacting with them through email or in person. Payroll is an easy process once direct deposit is set up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Oregon (Eugene, OR).

    Interview

    Walked in, said I took the class and got an A, got the job. That was it. It may have helped that I had a friend who worked there, but even without that I would've just had to show some coding knowledge

    Research Assistant Interview

    Interview

    Video interview since I was an out of state candidate. They contacted all of my references before setting up the interview. It was very informal, a 4 person panel, all of which were involved in the research project. Went over resume, why I was interested and what I could offer based on each duty listed in the job description. They didn't make an offer and I had to e-mail them to find out I wasn't selected well after the date they said they would make a decision by. It was unclear whether they were even going to e-mail me a rejection or not unless I asked.
