    Pros

    Benefits, salary, location - can't be beat. 8% retirement fund matching, state health insurance, lots of vacation, generous salary - all in a relaxed environment with low cost of living. Everyone is very engaged and enjoys the work - no ladder climbers or people who just want a paycheck.

    Cons

    None to speak of. Um... Parking permits on campus are expensive?

    Advice to Management

    More free coffee and donuts.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA).

    Interview

    Fairly generic questions read from a list, I was fairly sure that I already had the job before the interview started due to my previous manager's recommendation that I submit and application. Thought on my feet during the interview, didn't need to prepare anything. Just make sure you can remember general questions like "greatest weakness" or "a time you gave great customer service," etc. Also be sure to know certain sanitation standards.

    Interview Questions

    • The most specialized information I had to provide was in response to questions about sanitation eg. "To what temperature must raw chicken be cooked to be safe for consumption?"   Answer Question
