    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took 3 weeks before I got called.

    1) The manager of the position I applied for called me. Had a 30 minute phone interview with her. She was impressed and moved me to the next round which was to speak with the Director. This took 2 weeks. (Round 1)

    2) Director called me for a 30 minute phone interview (Round 2). Passed with flying colours and she re-iterated that she would love to bring me in for the third round.

    3) Met with the team on campus (Round 3). Took 1 hour. Shook hands, smiled, answered questions, and figured I got the offer.

    4) My references were contacted and all gave raving reviews. I was looking forward to receiving the offer based on the interactions and follow-up emails after the interviews. Everyone was engaged BUT.....

    They closed the position due to budget restrictions out of no where. I had to follow up and ask when they would be making a final decisions. I asked after my references gave me the go-ahead a week later. I e-mailed the manager and asked for an update but in a rude way she replied "sorry the position is closed we wish you the best on your career ahead". I swear I knocked this interview out of the park. Just wasn't meant to be I guess. Words of advice, give it your all at interviews but don't put your emotions into it...its just another job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    When I was initially contacted to set-up the interview, I was told that I would be speaking to two people over the phone. However, when the interview began there were six people on the conference call and I had no idea who was asking me each question. It was all very scenario driven with none of the typical getting to know you type questions. After I answered each question, they were silent as they took notes, so there were a lot of awkward silences. At one point they even put me on mute for a while, which was pretty shocking. I prepared pretty significantly, but I still found the questions very difficult. Overall, not a good experience, but I think it varies pretty significantly from each department.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was average, nothing too complicated. They asked the regular questions that one will more than likely get asked at any other job interview. There were plenty of positions open, so I think just as long as you did well on the interview you would get an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly standard. First a telephone screening, then a three person panel interview followed by a several part written test portion, then a second panel interview with the entire team and director. The contact was friendly throughout the process, as was each person I met. The panel team asked interesting questions, some behavioral. Following two interviews, I would have expected some sort of final response, but there was no further contact, not even a boilerplate rejection email.

    Very detailed questions about your past work experience. I had to explain exact work procedures, how I structured my work and which skills I have earned are gonna be useful for the job. I was hoping it would not last long, but it did. It was not that painful as one might think. Just a little annoying.
