I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Georgia State University in June 2014.

Interview Details

It is not stressful. The only problem is the waiting period to get cleared after background check. If you are hardworking and interested in working in the service industry, this is the place to be. It a very friendly environment to be in. You will enjoy it.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Georgia State University in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the job by a friend who also worked at the University, but in another department. The supervisor that worked in the department in which I was seeking a position in knew my friend personally, and agreed to bring me in for an interview. Initially, he gave me her telephone number and I contacted her. She prompted me to come meet her as soon as possible, which I did, resume in hand. Upon my arrival, she informally asked me about myself, my credentials, and the hours I was available to work. At the end, she informed me that she would speak with the business manager and go from there. The next day, she called me and told me to contact the business manager to meet with her. Upon contact, I made an appointment with the business manager and we met. She was very intimidating, but kind at the same time. She asked similar questions to the supervisor. At the end of the interview, she hired me for the job. My perception was that they were looking to fill in the position immediately. The person who was there at the time proved very unreliable and they were done with her, so I believe that's what made my hiring process go so quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no real difficult questions.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There were no negotions. The business manager told me what the starting rate was, and after nearly a year of unemployment and desperation, I was in no position to ask for more. It was satisfactory. Since then, I have received a n adequate raise.
