    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Windsor (Windsor, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    There was not any interview as such. You just go and talk to individual professors to see if they can offer any position in their office. You need to show that you're really interested by following them around everywhere and by constantly keeping in touch with them about any research openings.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Windsor (Windsor, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It was very informational based on actual work situations. If you didn't have enough experience or relatable experience, it would definitely show up in this format of resume. It was extremely important to review the job posting and prep by matching actual work experience stories to the requirements. They pretty well followed the job posting in order. Actual stories over theory were preferred. They also wanted to know volume of service provided.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at University of Windsor (Windsor, ON (Canada)) in December 2013.

    Straight forward, it was a 1 on 1 interview, asked a lot of personality based questions, I waited a week they called me with an offer. I prepared just by ensuring I understood the research proposal and I had relevant skills. They responded well to using the STAR approach. The professor offered feedback for my interview which has been beneficial. Happy with the process it wasn't intense. A lot of work, don't ask for overtime. Extended health package was great.
