    The hiring and interview process were perfect. They didn't make me jump through many hurdles, and it overall was a great experience in interviewing all the same. One of my professors reached out to the hiring office with a recommendation for me, and the hiring office was quite quick and responsive to my emails with inquiries. The hiring managers had a great attention to student service!

    I applied online. 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.
