    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Was a two person panel interview, they took turns in asking questions, while one wrote. They were super friendly and made me feel at ease. The entire process took about 30 minutes, and my references did not have to be professional as this was a work study position, so they just used references from my current profs at the university.

    I did not have an official interview as a teaching assistant. I got a position because I was a graduate student. I guess it depends on which department you are in.
