    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Berkeley, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Imperial College London (Berkeley, CA (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I had a skype interview with a professor. It was very informal. I suspect I was already chosen before the interview since most of the questions were regarding how easily I could move to London. I new my future supervisor before the interview, so the purpose of the interview seemed to be more of a formality. In fact, I remember the interviewer mentioning his department issued checklist very explicitly.

    Negotiation

    I visited Imperial college in person. The professor who hired me took me to lunch and made Imperial appear to be an attractive place to work (which is not hard, it is a good place). Very casual. My pay was not negotiable. It was really just a matter of acceptance or rejection of his/her offer.

    I've heard terrible things about Imperial but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. Unfortuntely I should have trusted my instincts. Extremely rude panel with no interviewing skills whatsoever. I feel sorry for whoever got the job.

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial College London (London, England) in August 2020.

    Interview

    The hiring PI was late to the interview and had very rude and condescending attitude. He seemed unimpressed by my skill sets which was not what he was looking for. My skill sets were clearly shown in CV and cover letter, one has to wonder why he selected me for interview if it was not matching with what he was looking for the job.
