Vendor/Budget Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ypsilanti, MI

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eastern Michigan University in September 2012.

Interview Details – I was referred by a person in another department. He forwarded my information to my now supervisor. I then emailed that person with my resume, and he contacted me for an interview. The interview was with him, and also the Director of our specific program as well as the Director for the whole department. They offered me the job right after the interview.

Interview Question – Whether I worked better with a group or as an individual?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was a set position for students, so the only real negotiation involved was my work hours.

Crew Student Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ypsilanti, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Eastern Michigan University in June 2010.

Interview Details – Went to the physical plant, filled out an application, and a few days later got a call and got asked when I could start. You don't need a lot of experience, but they do want people who are motivated. You need to be able to lift a lot because there is a lot of furniture moving involved. I was hired and started a few days later after the call.

Negotiation Details – I didn't have one, I was just hired.

Graduate Assistant Interview

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eastern Michigan University in March 2011.

Interview Details – Usually it is just a phone interview to start in order to see if you have any experience working in collegiate athletics and if you have knowledge of writing press releases, compiling stats, working with social media, etc. If you get past that point you will likely be invited to look around campus and meet the office staff.

Interview Question – Pretty straightforward..."what do you want out of your two years, what are your strengths, etc."   Answer Question

Graduate Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ypsilanti, MI

The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Eastern Michigan University in December 2008.

Interview Details – It's Pretty straight forward to get a GA position at Eastern. All you need is your buddy there to refer you when he/she graduates. Occasionally you get called through grad school but the best possible way is either to go to a dept and refer yourself or others in there
