    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UC Davis in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Laid back interview with a panel of 2 members of middle management and a veteran student employee. Basic 10 behavioral questions such as what is your greatest weakness, if you disagreed with your boss with a method how would you go about it etc...
    Emphasis on promptness and not being late, makes sense for a student employee job like this.
