Very Easy Interview

Student Assistant Interview

Student Assistant
Wichita, KS

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wichita State University in September 2012.

Interview Details – Very short process. I heard about the job through a student group I am a part of. I went and got an application in person and applied. About a week later I got a call to set up an interview. The interview was brief and touched on very basic skills, reactionary questions.

Interview Question – What skills do you have pertaining to running media equipment and how do you deal with malfunctions with the media.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Wichita, KS

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Wichita State University.

Interview Details – I received very helpful information throughout the interview. Calls into their HR dept were always met with the utmost customer service and care regarding my concerns. I was given detailed information regarding the interview expectations, and was emailed at each transition point (phone interview, in-person, background check, sign-up process).

Interview Question – What is your favorite movie and why? (No joke. They wanted to see how i would react to be sure i was both professional and fun, it worked.) All other questions were as expected. The skills test was a bit unexpected (I actually had to perform tasks on the spot and present my rationalizations).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None really, but my salary was increased as requested, so no complaints.
