I worked at Purdue University part-time (More than a year)
A lot of freedom; schedule is really flexible, as long as you make your deadline.
You need to be really disciplined, self motivated in order to finish your tasks. No one will be telling you what to do, so sometimes it can be confusing.
Advice to Management
Be more responsible, spend more time on reviewing the research ideas, approaches, and directions.
I applied online. I interviewed at Purdue University.
Interviewed with a professor (potential academic advisor) about academic interests. Was asked questions on detailed research experience on the resume. Talked about his research labs and equipment. Asked the professor some question that I was interested in.
