    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Athens, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Georgia.

    Interview Details

    I applied through DAWG link and they notified me by phone to schedule an interview. Most questions were pretty basic. The person interviewing you went down a list of very general questions. Mostly asked about your schedule, what previous work experience you held, how you work with/without supervision, what major are you and why. They talked about what they expect of you at work, just general guidelines you have to follow. Very simple.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Georgia.

    Interview Details

    I only had a phone call, where my prospective boss basically used the time to sell me the job rather than have me answer too many questions, so it was rather unconventional. I was applying from a different country so I'm sure that if I were there I would have had to attend an interview in person.

    The interviews were all day long and the questions were very general. Not really sure how they picked the best candidates. The multitude of people made the interviews very intimidating.

    Interview Details

    Got called by the front desk manager (Simone) and asked to come in. I waited for her by the desk for about 15 minutes and then we went in and sat down in the side lobby area (hill atrium) and talked for about forty-five minutes or so. Very relaxed, Simone is extremely nice.

    Interview Details

    For a student worker, none. You submit your schedule and a short online form, and they get back to you in a few months with a position. For a student culinary, you must have already been working at a dining hall for a few months to get experience. You fill out a short form. There is no interview, but you may be denied the position because of inexperience/no openings in the shop you want.

    Negotiation Details
    None. You get what you get.
