The interview process was simple but the turn around time took over a month. There were little updates and when Pitt finally decided to offer the job, they wanted a decision right away.

I applied online. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA) in Feb 2020

Interview

I applied online to a general announcement for All Temps, which is Pitt's internal temp agency. Soon after, a recruiter contacted me to come in for an interview. The recruiter asked me questions about my background and the types of jobs in which I was interested. I completed a background check, which included sending a survey to several references. The recruiter arranged an interview for a specific job. During the interview, the manager asked me only one question. She said that she would get back to me by the next week. I sent emails to HR and the professor, but a few weeks later, I had not heard back, so I followed up again. The recruiter said that he did not know what happened to the job. He suggested three other jobs, two of which did not match my educational background or work experience. For one of the jobs, I had a phone interview with a professor for several minutes, and she told HR to offer the job to me.
