    Interviewed by a panel of five. They were professional and friendly and took it in turns to ask questions. The questions were mostly in parts but they repeated them after each part which was helpful. They followed up the next day asking for three professional references.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Queen's University.

    Interview

    Four of the managers interviewed me. They asked only situational and behavioral questions. They did not provide any information regarding the job or company, and also they didn't ask any questions about my past experiences or educational background. It was a pretty difficult interview.

    Got the interview after emailing the professor who had posted the job on the university's internal portal. Went to his office after emailing him that I would want to meet him in person to express my interest.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions that I was asked were very basic in nature. Why do you want this job? What interests you? Why are you a good fit for this role? It was more like a conversation than being an interview   Answer Question
