    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton, FL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Filed out a paper application in April 2013 for the 2013-2014 academic year. During summer I received an e-mail requesting to schedule a phone interview. During the phone interview I was mostly asked questions about myself and as usual, a couple of what I would do during a certain scenario questions. At the end of the interview I was asked a few questions about scheduling and working preferences. The interview was rather quick and easy.

    Towards the end of the summer I received another e-mail saying I had been offered the job. I accepted the position and had to fill out some paperwork as well as attending a training session, but they give you a clear list with all the papers to be filled out and turned in. Once all that is done you are good to work.

    There is a 3 hour long group interview in which you complete various tasks so that they can see how you work together. During this time a mix of RA's and RC/HC's are taking notes and observing. The individual interview consists of a few RA's and 1 RC or HC. They ask a series of questions, but try to make you feel comfortable, although it's difficult because it feels like an interrogation.
