Research Associate/Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Raleigh, NC (US)

I applied in-person and interviewed at North Carolina State University.

Interview Details Interview process was many years ago but each step was clear. Job responsibilities and duties were clearly outlined. Salary was clear but not negotiable. HR processes have changed over the years so I do not know how relevant my experience is to what current interviewees will experience. For example, there were no background tests then as there are now.

Interview Question – Surprisingly, there were none.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No salary negotiation. The employer knew I wanted the job and also knew I had a 'better' offer elsewhere.
