Very Easy Interview

Desk Attendant Interview

Desk Attendant

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SUNY Oswego.

Interview Details – I had known the Hall Director for a while already, so she already knew my character. She asked the typical questions about customer service, but certainly wasn't out to trick me. It was a very simple interview.

Interview Question – I don't remember any of the specific questions, because it took place several years ago. I think she asked me something about how I would respond if a friend tried to get me to break the rules.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Researcher Interview

Researcher
Oswego, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SUNY Oswego in December 2007.

Interview Details – There was a panel interview with 6 or 7 people from the department and ancillary departments. I suggest you pay attention and memorize their names as they are introduced. They each had designated questions to ask, and asked them even if I had already answered them in my response to another person's similar question. I felt foolish because I was required to keep repeating myself. It wasn't a real conversation wherein the participants listen to each other; it was simply going around the circle and asking the predesignated questions regardless of what had already been covered. I suggest you bone up on your tautology. One question I remember is "How do you deal with stress?" There was also a skills test; I have no idea how well they thought I performed because there were no guidelines.
