    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Illinois State (Normal, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is highly competitive. First there are many applicants for the same job and then after your resume is selected there is an interview that a candidate needs to pass. Once you crack the interview you get the job. The main difficulty is to get your resume selected by the interviewer.

    Interview

    I did not have much of an interview process with ISU. When I received the position I was already a graduate student so I just had to submit an application and then do a short phone interview which involved calling a specific number, listening to a prompt and answering the question in Spanish.

    Attended a mandatory hiring session for the campus rec. Based on my resume I got called for a student interview with present rec employees. Basic Interview questions and some situational ones. Took about 20 minutes, including wait time in lobby.
    Got a call back for a second interview with one of the bosses. Asked same questions and more situational ones.

    Question that tripped everyone up was "What does being punctual mean to you?"

    I applied by submitting my resume along with a cover letter. A few weeks later I was contacted by the office for an interview. The longest wait was between the interview and knowing whether or not I had gotten the job--this was about a month or so. The interview was approximately 30-45 minutes long, and was done by three of the current employees. They asked standard questions about previous experience and about my time abroad.

    • There really were not any unexpected or difficult questions. Pretty straight forward.   Answer Question
