    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Very straight forward and exactly what you would expect of any interview. I was interviewed by two managers who were both friendly and took turns asking questions. It took about 20 minutes and most of it was relaxed, get-to-know-you set up. I honestly think they just needed to make sure you were a normal person who could be trained.

    Interview Questions

    • They did a couple scenario questions, "If a student is upset about a missing package how could you handle it?" One of the things they were concerned about is how you would deal with international students or someone who did not speak english well.   Answer Question

    Interview

    CLUE is the UW's free, late-night, multidisciplinary study center located in Mary Gates Hall. I am a UW student when I applied for this part-time on-campus job. I applied on line and got an interview 2 weeks later. There are two interviewers, one is the manager of CLUE and the other one is a Statistics Tutor working at CLUE. This interview can be divided into 3 parts. First part is behavior and fit questions and there are about 15 questions there. Secondly, they give me three statistics questions and ask me teach and explain these questions to them as if they were the students with questions to ask. Finally, they give me a statistics quiz with 6 questions. I was asked to finish this quiz by myself and hand in it to the manager before I leave. It took me about 40 mins to finish this quiz.
