    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas State (San Marcos, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly simple; I showed my previous work and my credentials. I was asked questions about the work and it was explained what I would be doing in the lab. Since I was already acquainted with the interviewer, it was fairly informal.

    Administrative Assistant I- Registrar's Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Marcos, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Texas State (San Marcos, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and interviewed a little over a month later. Panel interview of 4, business casual. Nice folks and they liked to joke around. Mostly typical questions like "Why did you apply?" and "How do you respond to stress?" I was told that a decision would be made at the end of the week and then all applicants would be informed of the outcome. That was three months ago and still no word. That happened last time I interviewed here too. Guess they don't feel the need to actually follow up with the losers.

    Interview Questions

    • They did some "got-cha" questions like "What is the fastest way to select an entire table in Excel?" and "How do you use filters in Excel?" I would recommend brushing up on MS Office, just in case.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Texas State (San Marcos, TX) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Typing test with one 3 min. warm up and then a 5 min. test. Required to make 35 WPM. Hiring Panel of 5. Business Casual. Interview lasted about 45 min. It was not really difficult, but it does seem like much ado about what is essentially a cashier position. I applied in early Jan., was interviewed in mid- Feb., and then I was told that it may be up to 4 weeks before I hear any news. It is a long process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Texas State (San Marcos, TX) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is literally picking a professor and asking if they have any research opportunities. It really isn't much more than that except filing some paperwork when they give you the yes to go ahead. Just be confident that the person you want to work for is actually worth working for.
