Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Georgetown University.
Interview Details – Very easy interview. They were looking for a very specific set of qualifications which I had and got the job. The interview consisted in a panel group of 4 including faculty members (although I was not working for a faculty member). Faculty members only place emphasis on university degrees and managers focus more on experience.
Interview Question – Managers wanted to have specific comments on experiences related to the job. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – none
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Georgetown University.
Interview Details – Initial communication over the phone was very brief. The actual interview was one on one basically just discussing my past work experiences and what I would be doing at Georgetown. I met with a few other people that I would be working with to discuss my experience and what I would be helping with and right before I left they let me know they would like me to start the next week. I thought it would be more involved.
Interview Question – There really wasn't any question that was too difficult. Mainly just talking about my past work experiences. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Georgetown University in August 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted a week later. Invited to come in for an in person interview with two staff members. Interview was very relaxed and pleasant, no really tough questions. I felt very positive after the interview but did not receive an offer. The process was very quick and I believe they hired someone who was a graduate of the university. I think in their eyes I was overqualified, or they may have had an internal candidate and were just going through the process.

Interview Question – Most unexpected: What top three non-work websites do you review each day? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I interviewed at Georgetown University in February 2013.
Interview Details – I had a friend who worked there and recommended I apply. I went through the Student Employment Office website and Jason contacted me for an interview in the next couple weeks (they all get done at the end of each semester to be hired for the following semester, I just happened to apply near the end of a semester). For the interview, the man who will be your direct boss comes in and asks you questions, and he asks a couple STCs currently on the job to join him and encourages them to ask you a question or two at the end of his segment. Basically he wants to see if you'll fit with the team, which is not too difficult.
Interview Question – Surprisingly, almost no questions about computers, only how I would rate my own expertise at troubleshooting, and even this turned out to be almost totally irrelevant, he told me later. Mostly he wants to make sure that you can handle customer service. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There are set hourly wages for student positions based on the position itself and the length of time it has been held. I accepted the base salary and got the usual longevity promotions (which can be withheld if you missed too many days, for example).
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Georgetown University.
Interview Details – Had one pre-screening phone interview and two in-person ones

Interview Details – Basic interviewing and hiring process - painless.
Interview Question – Biggest strength? Answer Question
The process took 3 months - interviewed at Georgetown University in January 2012.
Interview Details – Very long...phone interview and two in-person interviews with multiple people. It spanned over a few months with lots of follow up. I don't know why they were taking their time, but in the end, it worked against them because I got frustrated. Nice group of people, though. It seemed like a nice work/life balance.
Interview Question – I don't remember. Nothing too difficult Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Had a few other offers. Didn't think it was the right fit for me at the time. Was also unsure how i felt about the manager i would be working under. It seemed like the office was in flux, which I later found out was true.
