Resident Assistant Interview

Resident Assistant
Arlington, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at University of Texas at Arlington in March 2012.

Interview Details – I was recruited through Annual RA recruitment drive which starts some where in January and actual interviews happen around March. You will need to apply for the position through SNAP Jobs and they usually call any one who has attended the RA Information Session and lived at least a semester in an On-Campus Apartment. I had three rounds of interview, first two were one on two question answer session where they asses your leadership skills. Google Behavioral questions and they give you an idea of the type of questions asked. Last round is group interview where you will be assigned a team of 7 to 10 members and you will need to perform in a team environment. Key to success is being pro active and being engaging in a team.

Interview Question – They repeatedly ask same question twice in first two rounds so its advisable to be honest.   Answer Question

Coordinator I, Spec Pro Interview

Coordinator I, Spec Pro

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at University of Texas at Arlington.

Interview Details – All was pretty standard. 20 min phone screen left feeling of unsurety but received call back for face to face. Panel interview followed.

Interview Question – Honestly there were no questions that were striking. Everything was very basic and textbook interview style. Even with the phone interview - it was basicly probing for resume discrepancies against the job role/responsibilities, leaving the face to face more of a triple check and exam of personality/good fit for the team or not.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Initial offer seemed fair but was able to negotiate an adjustment to increase.
