    Average Interview


    Straight forward nothing extremely difficult and only 1 stage during the interview process. However, interviews at universities are panel interviews to remove bias. So I had three people interview me (it's more common to have two but in some cases, three people run an interview depending on the job and department). Interviews can vary a lot depending on the department you apply for and the salary band.

    What kind of experience do you have building relations across departments and how do you maintain them?
