Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University College London in September 2012.

Interview Details friend emailed me a job link he found on a listserv. I applied online; it was the standard academic application procedure. Maybe a week or two later I received an email setting up an interview for a week hence. Interviewed, and was offered the post by email half an hour after the interview was over.

Interview Question – None, it was a pretty straightforward interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – My start date was incredibly negotiable. But that was about the only negotiating. Salary was completely non-negotiable. Work schedule was whatever I wanted as long as I averaged enough hours per month.

Ad Hoc Lecturer Interview

Ad Hoc Lecturer
London, England (UK)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at University College London in January 2008.

Interview Details Submission of required paperwork, with statement of purpose, and one-to-one interview. Interview, like application, was based on internal reference and never opened to outsiders, as this was a cut-rate employment. There was no negotiation. Salary was pre-determined by administrators within the employers. No benefits. No leave. It all amounted to voluntary work with slight financial reimbursement.

Interview Question – Why would you want this obligation?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Salary was pre-determined by administrators within the employers. No benefits. No leave. It all amounted to voluntary work with slight financial reimbursement.
