    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Utah State University.

    Interview Details

    We set up a time to meet 1 on 1. Whenever was most convenient for me. When we met, she gave me her full attention and she had the most positive attitude I've ever seen anyone have. She asked me various questions about myself; what I was studying, why would I be a good fit for the SI program, what my hobbies are, etc. Then I was asked to give her an example of how I teach. Luckily I knew this was coming and I prepared a 10 minute lesson over Powerpoint about the moons of Jupiter. She seemed very pleased with me. I got the job a few days later.

    Facilities Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Logan, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Utah State University.

    Interview Details

    I applied via the campus job board. I called once and scheduled an interview with the hiring manager of facilities. It was a very basic interview, asking about experience and job skills. The facilities members asked me how I was with hard things and mentioned that waking up early would be required every day. After that we pretty much focused on what the job would offer me if I got it. Very painless interview, although you need to apply before school to have a chance and there is no compensation for driving to the university for the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • How is your teamwork skills (the facilities member consider each unit a team and take your response really seriously.)   Answer Question
