    Former Employee - Tour Guide in Newport News, VA
    Former Employee - Tour Guide in Newport News, VA

    I worked at Christopher Newport University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the atmosphere of the campus. The student body is very friendly and engaging. The opportunity to be a tour guide is very much cherished; about only 10% of the total student population is selected for this role. Great experience in public speaking, training, leadership. Much of the program is run by students (while they do have managers to oversee everything). Rigorous hiring process to ensure correct students are selected.

    Cons

    some of the employees do not take the job as serious as others.

    Interview Details

    I first received a phone interview which was about 10 minutes long and was invited for an on campus interview. Parking was tough to find so I would suggest arriving at least 30 minutes early. I sat down with a manager and spoke with her for about 30 minutes. When she was finished reading the interview questions from her HR form, she asked me if I had any questions and when we were finished, she told me she would forward her results to HR. I received a letter stating I did not get the job about 2 weeks later in the mail.
