I worked at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time
Academic setting. My work was project-based, so I didn't have set hours. I was expected to work between 35 - 45 hours any given week, but what mattered most was that I completed projects on time. This will be different with different bosses, however. Working on the cutting edge of research was highly satisfying.
Low salary, benefits were cut when the state slashed $300 million from the university's budget.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI) in February 2017.
Short 2 person interview about 30 minutes long. One interviewer was the head of the department I was applying for, the other was the head of a similar department. The interview was very light-hearted, they asked me about my interests and what I expected the job to be. There was not very much questioning on technical knowledge.
