Help Desk Technician Interview

Help Desk Technician

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Colorado Denver.

Interview Details – The hiring process takes a very long time and the interview process did not start until 2 months after I applied. The interview committee was not very technical and the members were rude. There was also no technical test, just a HR qualifications check and then the group interview. There was a short additional final interview but the manager was not really engaged and I got the impression he was going hire me regardless of what I said because they have a high turn over rate and were desperate.

Interview Question – The asked a silly question about office 2003 and 2007 that really didn't matter. The older lady with the bad perfume asked me why I applied, with a really poor attitude.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation because they said I was essentially starting at the bottom and there were going to be very few opportunities for raises or advancement.

Campus Security Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Colorado Denver in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was notified of an interview time and date after applying with Denver University. I went through a fairly
standard interview that was primarily about background verification of information on the application.
Then I was given a timed test on a computer. Watched a video and wrote a written report. The
position, interviewer, and work culture was all very positive and professional. I would highly recommend
the University of Denver as a place to work.

Interview Question – Ordinary questions about the information on the application and why should they
hire me over other candidates?
