    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ball State University (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was very brief and they really just asked to see my class schedule and then I got the job! I was able to begin the very next day and I really enjoyed the job because I was able to interact with a lot of people. The great part about it is that I got to go some networking.

    Ticket Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ball State University (Muncie, IN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had prior relationship with the hiring manager, and therefore only took one phone interview to discuss my approach to the position and the specific skills related to it. For a new applicant, I would expect a simple first interview, followed by a second interview either via phone or skype.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that the position was not fitting for my career path and goals. No issue with the organization at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ball State University (Muncie, IN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I emailed the Economics Department administrative coordinator and scheduled an interview. The interview was very laid-back and personal. It gave me a great feel for the culture of the work environment. It was prompt, but in depth enough as to allow me to make my own judgement about working there.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. Ball State offers part-time student workers a minimum wage, which is non-negotiable.

    Digtial Corps - Video Apprentice Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ball State University (Muncie, IN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    There were 2 separate interviews, one with the team lead and one with the boss. It is very tough to get selected to be interviewed, let alone make it past the team lead or even the boss if you get there. A lot of people lose hope of getting hired here. You have to show personality and enthusiasm, not just skill.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ball State University.

    Interview

    Started out as a personal interview about myself and interests and turned to a more technical side about my degree, knowledge of specific systems, experience with software and hardware and where I want to end up eventually after I have achieved my degree. I was then introduced to the existing technicians and given an overview of job responsibilities and what we are responsible for.
