Student Worker Interview

Student Worker
Athens, GA

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at University of Georgia in May 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was conducted over the phone. i was essentially just called and offered the job. I was called before 5, and was asked to be at work the next morning at 7:30 along with my completed paperwork. The paperwork took a long time and they ended up giving me an additional 2 hours pay for completing it. It was a pretty easy process.
