Online@UCF Support Assistant Interview

Online@UCF Support Assistant
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at University of Central Florida.

Interview Details – I first sent my resume through the UCF career site.

It asked me to submit a personal website. I emailed the employers because this was mandatory and I did not know how to respond. They said put something funny if I did not want to share a personal website. I decided to put a cat meme.

In my interview, they asked me to jog their minds about what I submitted for the link. I reminded them that I put a cat meme. They laughed and remembered that they chose my application in part because of it.

Their questions were pretty standard:

What are your strengths, Weaknesses? etc.

Tell me about your previous relevant experience?

I had two managers that participated in my interview.

Interview Question – Describe a time that you helped someone do something technical process.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, because it is a part time entry level job.
