    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Washington University in St. Louis in September 2016.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. Both were relatively casual. The interviews were conducted like conversations mostly. The interview would start with a question, but instead of just moving on, there was some back and forth. In both interviews, the interviewer spent some time explaining details about the job, so the interviews felt like a two-way street instead of just the interviewee listening and answering questions.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Somewhat informal interview filled with garbage questions taken straight off an HR "What to ask your interview candidate" site. Didn't ask questions about my skills, didn't describe job, didn't ask if I had questions. I haven't yet heard back if I got the job, but I don't imagine that I did.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very informal interview process due to networking opportunity; Best suggestion for wanting a position at this institution is for you to network with key grant holders. The traditional methods of applying for a job here is very slim. Its better to network with someone already established at the institution rather going through the traditional method.
