    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin in April 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Very straightforward. Nice guy (boss) interviewing, 30 minutes or so. He asked all the basic questions about research and teaching. Easy to talk to, relaxed. Though this was overall an easy interview - they certainly can be harder. Not sure what else to say, just be prepared to address all the core questions about your experience and expertise.

    Interview

    Fast and efficient interview process. A lot of university resources for clinical research, clinical and family support and options to go through and choose from; ask details so you can fit your specific profile. Senior administrators are useful, but pay attention to the fine print. Overall a comfortable setup and a friendly interview environment.

    Easy online application. Received an email for the interview. Three people interviewing- 2 current tutors and 1 other housing employee. Asked general question on why you'd be good for the job, etc. Then there was a portion where they gave you three questions in your field and had you explain how to do each problem.
