    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Duquesne University.

    Interview

    A brief phone call where they asked 3-5 vaguely related questions. 80% of the time was spent describing day to day implying they had already decided to hire me. The position was offered immediately at the conclusion of the phone interview. Salary stated on phone was lowered on actual paper offer, very disappointing but still a good opportunity for a free degree. Very little of the day to day description was accurate but the job is very different depending on who you work for.
