    Interview Details

    The hiring process is pretty straight forward. I simply walked in to inquire about open positions and was brought into the office of one of the assistant directors. They gave me a run down of the position and provided me an application.

    The interview was predominantly comprised of basic interview questions regarding my resume followed by asking me to respond to "pretend" situations.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, they basically told me what I would be getting paid.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Florida Atlantic University in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
