    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    There were about four rounds of interviews during which I had to meet multiple supervisors. Each interview was more like an informal conversation, because everyone was so laid back. It was a good experience, but took about a month and a half until I was offered the position. I would recommend applying for the benefits of working for a university.
