    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morgantown, WV
    Interview Details

    This position was offered as part of my scholarship for attending the graduate program. As in most cases receiving the offer was directly tied to my application to graduate school. I did not have to but I visited the department months before I was offered the position officially and had a brief discussion with the director. After that they based my assignment on the skills I described in my resume.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at West Virginia University in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was really simple. I submitted my resume to HR, I was given a call by my now supervisor, the VP of Communications, and he asked me to come in for an interview. I interviewed with him and one of his other employees. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and they asked me about my experiences in and out of class. I informed them that I had to make a decision about another internship by the next day, however that I preferred to work for them, and they let me know within 24 hours that I was hired. Over all a very good experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morgantown, WV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at West Virginia University in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by 5 individuals. The group had a list of questions they went through so quickly that they couldn't have been listening to my answers. They didn't ask any follow up questions or for any additional information. I believe I was the candidate that met a legal requirement. I asked about the culture of the department and the response was that they have parties on peoples birthdays. Not what I would have expected from a department within a well known university.
