    Good and they will ask you the question about resume. also there are some algorithm and machine learning problems. you need to think and answer it immediately. So, do more prepare and you need to really know what you list on the resume, if you are not good enough in that skill, don't list it!

    Senior Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted within 2 days of online application for interview with lab PI and team. Interviewed the following week and met a variety of potential colleagues, received tour of facilities, treated to lunch, and met with PI to discuss position and qualifications. Interview was very pleasant and personable until HR got involved. HR rep gave verbal offer (Pitt refuses to provide written offers which is RIDICULOUS) which was ~10% low given my experience. I counter-offered with a 10% increase and the HR rep balked and said they do not negotiate. I thanked them for their time and let them know I would pursue another opportunity. HR rep just hung up. Absurd! I suppose PhD and upper management are the only ones who are allowed to negotiate their pay. This reeked of unprofessionalism. I have always negotiated pay at other academic institutions and have never encountered such hostility as a prospective employee with an offer in-hand. Steer clear of Pitt.

    Confusing, not communicated well, and it took FOREVER to get an offer. I ended up taking another position since it took HR so long to make an offer after being told an offer would be made. Left me with a bad feeling.
