Help Desk Support Analyst Interview

Help Desk Support Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago in September 2010.

Interview Details – First there was an initial phone screen, that went well, then I went in and interviewed with what was to be my manager and his manager. They were extremely pleasant. The whole interview process was orderly, timely and professional. In a relatively short period I was contacted by phone with a job offer. It was awesome.

Interview Question – Why I was leaving current job after only six months employment.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was a phone offer and I wanted to accept the position. Interestingly, I had interviewed months before and was told a salary the same I was making and declined. This time I was offered a bit more (without my prompting) and just accepted it.

Very Easy Interview

Help Desk Level I Interview

Help Desk Level I
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago in May 2014.

Interview Details – Manager asked one question. "If someone called in and said that they couldn't log onto the network and told me the computer networking cord was plugged into the back of the printer what do you tell them to do"? My interview lasted all but 10 mins. Not diverse at all.

Interview Question – I was only asked the one question above, which I gave the correct answer.   View Answer

Easy Interview

Rover Interview

Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Art Institute of Chicago in August 2009.

Interview Details – I applied to the Rover Program (an internal temp agency) in the summer of 2009 and never heard back. I applied again the next month with the backing of a current employee and was accepted into the program. At first a few e-mails were traded back and forth. Then, I had an interview in person. This seemed more of a formality- although the interviewer seemed to take it seriously- as they needed more people to cover a certain department. The Art Institute is an inbred place. A VERY large portion of the people there get their jobs because they know someone who works at or is affiliated with the School or Museum.

Interview Question – What are your weaknesses?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wasn't able to negotiate and there really is no room for any negotiation.
