Graduate Instructional Assistant Interview

Graduate Instructional Assistant
San Marcos, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Texas State in June 2013.

Interview Details – Before each semester, there will be some availability for the GIA position. You just fill out the application form online and then submit it. Later you will receive some confirmation letter and ask you for a short interview. You should bring your resume together with the unofficial transcript, and they just ask some brief questions about Object Oriented Programming, C++, data structure, etc. Then, you may get hired!

Interview Question – Nothing difficult for this kind of job.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant I- Registrar's Office Interview

Administrative Assistant I- Registrar's Office
San Marcos, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Texas State in February 2014.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

Cashier- Parking Services Interview

Cashier- Parking Services
San Marcos, TX

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Texas State in February 2013.

Interview Details – 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.
