    Facilities Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Logan, UT
    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

I went to see her and she asked me what I wanted to do in the future and why I wanted to be her Undergraduate Research Assistant. She told me she wanted to talk to a few other students.

    After a few days she let me know that I could have the job if I wanted it.

    Intern for Housing and Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Utah State University in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I emailed the supervisor about the position and corresponded via email and phone for about a week. I emailed my resume and vita, and she invited me in for an interview.
    There was only one interview, she asked some basic initial questions but was mostly interested in my experience and ability to work with people.
    I had my own office (cubicle), lunch was flexible, time I worked was flexible as long as I gave my supervisor my schedule. That's typically how extension offices work, you work on your own time (typically a regular working day though), and sometimes work nights or weekends for community classes or events. Coworkers are fantastic, regular little parties, it's nice to get paid for work that you wouldn't really consider work.
    They are more focused on your actual experience, what you bring that they can build on rather than teach from square one. She provided many learning experiences and opportunities to publish and present. Any type of experience is helpful, I mentioned my experience with refugees as an offhand comment, which I later found out was a solidifying aspect for my getting the internship.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Logan, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Utah State University in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Called for job but it wasn't one I applied for. So I guess that means that HR forwards resumes they think applicable to the various departments with open positions. It was a normal length in process. The interview was with the direct manager and a few co-workers. Standard questions - situational, relate your experience, etc.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Normal. There was a little room for negotiation but not much.
