    I applied online – interviewed at UC Davis in November 2014.

    I was called for an interview a few days after the job posting closed. You interview with a panel of three people and they as many behavioral questions. I believe that they already have someone internal they want to hire and just interview out side applicants per policy.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UC Davis in August 2014.

    Laid back interview with a panel of 2 members of middle management and a veteran student employee. Basic 10 behavioral questions such as what is your greatest weakness, if you disagreed with your boss with a method how would you go about it etc...
