Front Desk Clerk Interview

Front Desk Clerk

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at University of Western Ontario.

Interview Details – Most important step is to get into contact with the manager of Housing and Ancillary Services. From there it is simply a matter of applying when they start searching for Front Desk Clerks. The interviews are pretty straight forward and are secondary when there is some familiarity with the manager.
