    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Stony Brook University (Stony Brook, NY).

    Interview

    Asked me general questions like why I choose to join RSP, my schedule and my GPA. The interview took about 15 minutes, in general they will not interview anyone they don't want to hire. So make it easy. RSP supervisors are also SBU students so they will be very kind to you. You will take a 1.5 hour long training to learn everything you need after you passed the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Why I choose RSP as a part time job. What is my visa status.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Not very lengthy, relatively straight forward. I worked at the university while I was a student so I'm not sure how useful my information is. I worked under the division of campus residences. They were organized well enough to function on a regular basis but problems arose on a fairly regular basis.
