    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    I was interviewed twice for the same position & never given an offer. Word on the street is that they give preference to UT Alums and like to hire internally. That's fine, but don't post a vacancy publicly in that case.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    Email the professor of which the class you're interested in TA-ing. The professor will setup an interview if necessary. Probably he/she will need to see all candidates. After that, most professors will contact the candidates about whether or not they will hire you. However, different departments may have different type of process. In some depts, the graduate coordinator will handle every TA allocation, rather than the professors themselves.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview then In Person Interview. The phone interview was actually using Skype so it was a video conference interview because I live out of town. The in person interview included a panel of department leadership as well as a person who was recently hired. I'm doubting that person answered the questions I was asked.

    Interview Questions

    • Were not standard. They were super specific to the position as if I were already int he role and being asked what my plan of action was for the project without any additional knowledge.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very task oriented. They want to know what you can do in terms of previous job tasks. Also, they take a very long time getting back to potential candidates, making it difficult to schedule interviews once they do decide who they are going to interview. Lengthy process for little payout, especially for entry level positions!
