    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Boise State University.

    I was referred to the position through a contact I had made with a former class TA (now a Professor). I set up a meet time with the faculty adviser at his office. The interview consisted of basic questions about my previous course work, knowledge of the research field, and interest in the project.

    There is not much to say about the process. I found the job posting through Bronco jobs and I applied for it. I really do not have anything else to say about the process but I have to get thirty words in here unfortunately.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a year or moreinterviewed at Boise State University.

    Interview

    I was already a state employee and was able to transfer, but it took quite awhile. I had to apply for a lot of jobs before something worked out. BSU has a ton of openings, but they really like to hire internally. Usually, somebody leaves a job and kind of a domino affect happens where the admins hop to a new position - which makes it hard to get in.

    Interview Questions

    • They follow a pretty standard state hiring list of questions. Nothing too weird!   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Boise State University (Boise, ID) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The professors interviewing were very receptive and friendly. Questions asked feel in line with the typical interview questions such as why here and respond to this situation. Just be friendly and honest and you will most likely do just fine.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Boise State University (Boise, ID).

    Interview

    I contacted both the Director of Security and the Security Supervisor about the available position to get more information and to introduce myself. The Supervisor was interested in what experience I had with security.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are geared to determine whether you could handle yourself in an emergency situation. None of the questions were very difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase because the state has a set level for a Senior Security Officer and that is the pay that you receive.

    Customer Service Representative I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Boise State University (Boise, ID) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had one interview with two interviewing me. It was relaxed as I remember and what was of importance to them was being able to research your questions (learn by reading material provided) being self motivated.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was offered $10.15 by my supervisor who hired me, but once my supervisor left to take another job on campus and a year and a half into my employment, my hourly wage was reduced to $9.36 by the senior counselor. The reason, just because she can. As far as I know, they can negotiate by prior experience as my supervisor did with me.
