    IT Support Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fordham University (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process for student workers isn't that in-depth.
    Typically, at least with this listing / opportunity someone would find the posting for a job, send in the proper or required information, await the response, and then you go in for an impromptu discussion, and typically you start either that week or the following week.
    Its really painless, and goes pretty quick.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fordham University (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone screening. During the phone screening, you introduce yourself to the Dean, the Dean informs you of what courses are available for you teach, and arranges a time for you to meet and have your teaching evaluated by other instructors. You must prepare a short lesson plan on a topic from one of the course you will be teaching. Then you give a short lecture on that topic. And finally, you take and answer questions from your audience/interviewers as if they were your students.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fordham University in January 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online, I believe, (this was awhile ago) and the entire process was very smooth and simple. I was contacted by telephone to schedule an in-person interview for shortly thereafter. When I got the interview, some basic questions were asked, and after I passed the interview the start date was set for the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • I wouldn't say that there were any particularly difficult questions, although since I did not have much administrative assistant experience at that point, I did have to explain how I felt I was qualified for the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't attempt to negotiate the salary.
