    I applied online - interviewed at Western Washington University in June 2013.

    There was a phone interview, followed by an in person, panel style interview. I met with 3 people from the payroll department (the supervisor for the position and two potential coworkers). They took turns asking questions. At the end of the interview, they had the person who was leaving the position come in and talk to me about what the position was like.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what I would do if it was my first day and a project was handed to me without proper instruction and everyone left but it was clear that there was a tight deadline for completion. The asker said that the scenario was not outside the realm of possibility and I wasn't sure she was joking.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Western Washington University in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person, dropping of the application and resume to the Front Desk. Towards the end of the Academic Term, the department called me saying they would like to interview for the position the next term. On the day of my interview, I showed up to the building a little early and the receptionist wrote down what time I came in and I'm fairly sure a description of how I approached the receptionist. Right when the interview was scheduled to start, I was called into the room where 5 of the current employees were seated down opposite of an empty chair. The interview was a series of situational questions and personality questions. After that interview I was told that I would hear back from the department later that week for a 2nd interview if I made it through this one. I got that call and met with the Front Desk Manager and a building supervisor. They asked more indepth questions about how I would handle various situations and what I would have done differently given different scenarios. After that interview I was told that I would be given a 3rd interview if I passed this one. I got the 3rd interview, but it was more of a team building exorcise with the entire existing staff and 5 interviewees. So preformed a series of team builders. I was then told that the staff would talk about how we fit in with the group. After that I got the job!!

    Had seen the job availability on the internal WWU student job posting site, but didn't think I would qualify. Ended up meeting with the person hiring in a different setting, and was offered the option of interviewing on the spot. They were mostly looking for someone detail-oriented, focused and organized.
