    Student Worker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Ball State.

    Interview Details

    The interview was basically to have you come in and schedule, most locations rather laid back. Positions for students are for a wide range of jobs from food prep to serving, or even cleaning. Shifts are short and rather easy. Job is easy to get because it has a high turn over rate and honestly I think this is because the general population of Ball State students are spoiled and this is their first job... For people who have survived jobs like retail, this is very very easy, to get and to keep.

    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ball State in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring/interview process here is rather easy, really. You'll be asked a lot of generic questions, like "do you prefer to work alone or on a team." Answers will be obvious, like, "I enjoy both."

    You'll interview with the Director, then with the support staff, then with the professional staff (who will be your peers in the job). For the professional staff, you'll be required to give a 10-minute presentation with the topic, "Why you should choose Ball State." Focus on the big points, like Immersive Learning, academics, facilities, athletics.

    Pay did not seem negotiable. Play hardball because you'll definitely be underpaid in this position.

    Director, Contracts and Grants Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Ball State in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing process was the usual for a university--a committee, but the person to whom the position reported said that he would be the one making the decision. He was quite nice and I liked him. He did have adequate training for his job but, as was usual at that location, he had not worked anyplace else--did his undergraduate and graduate training there.

    Negotiation Details
    Very simple. "Think about it and let us know what salary you would like". I called later and gave the salary. Two weeks later I received a call that the salary was accepted, though higher than they had expected to pay.
