    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was rather simple for me, as I had interacted with my current boss when I was working as an intern in the same college. She liked my work ethic and let me know that her office was about to post a job that I might be interested in. So, I sent her my resume and she responded the same day letting me know that she would like to interview me. I went in, interviewed with her, and then I was offered the position within a few days.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    You need to have you office skills test, application, resume with you as you turn it in to the secretary. While there they will have you take a little test. The test consists of finding out how much you know about basic computering. Some are a lot harder than others and I talked to them and they said that they don't expect everyone to know all of them. What version is Google Chrome on? If you are in the same planet as the right answer, its fine.

    Interview Questions

    • There were the typical questions of, tell us about yourself, weaknesses. The hardest questions was, "Pretend you are on the phone and troubleshoot this problem.... I can't print, I press print and it doesn't work." The idea again is not to get the right answer, but do you understand how to troubleshoot. Do you know how to help someone identify their operating system? Do you know how to troubleshoot the possible hardware or software problems? Sometimes there's not even an answer in mind, its just to keep you thinking.   Answer Question
