    I worked at University of Wisconsin full-time

    Pros

    They are very flexible and are pretty lenient. Other than that, they are also very kind and friendly. Very good place to work.

    Cons

    Management seems like they don't want to be there. They overall look very depressed, but at same time some can micromanage.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at University of Wisconsin.

    Interview Details

    I was required to prepare a two-page maximum cover letter in response as to how my experiences met each minimum qualification and submitted my resume in addition to a standard online job seeking account. I was contacted a month later that I was selected for an interview and was asked for my availability on a given day. The interview was with 4 members, one the direct boss I would have been working under, a lady from the offices in Madison, an AmeriCorps Vista member, and the co-department head. The interview was over Skype where I was projected on a screen in front of them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were multiple questions regarding my experience educating youth, of which my experience is limited, making those questions difficult to answer.   Answer Question
