    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT).

    Interview

    Low key and they accept almost everyone because of a high turn over. You need to have a good work ethic and have manners and act properly. You show up in the office and they have a quick chat and ask when you can start.

    Brand Lab Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Really basic interview process. First you interview with a few students from the Brand Lab team. They will ask you generic interview questions. They want students who are looking for resume "experience" as the first semester is unpaid. They want to know you will work hard and put effort in even without monetary rewards.

    The second part is a few days later with the manager. He will ask you straight up if you are okay with "paying your dues" the first semester and not being paid. If you are chill with that then - you're hired!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Small panel of two supervisors and a student leader. They had come prepared with the same sheet of paper and each took turns asking different questions. The interviewers were pretty quiet and didn't engage much during the interview. I think that I had the interview on Wednesday and then they called me with an offer on Monday or Tuesday the next week. So overall the process was very fast.

    • They asked me if I could be any animal what I would be and why   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was an intern in the program I now help coordinate. The interview really was my project, but they called me in for a formal interview and asked me what made me qualified to be the internship director/program coordinator. I didn't get the job from that interview, but I did get a research position in the same company. After the summer, one of the people they hired didn't work out so they had an open spot and asked me to fill it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was super easy. I got a good grade in a class, so the professor contacted me. I sat down and talked about my life and goals, and they had me talk to their colleague. After they described their research, they asked me if I was interested, and then we talked about price. I should have asked for more.
