    Interview

    Online application and hire. Didn't have to do anything other than fill out an online form. It was pretty easy. For the most part, to get hired as a Student Assistant Manager, you have to already be working there.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Iowa State University (Long Beach, CA).

    Interview

    I didn't really have an interview. I submitted an application after I met my eventual mentor at a professional conference (I guess that was my interview). My conversation with him at the conference was very low key, as we just talked generally about some of the things that we were doing with our work/research.

    There was no actual interview. They look at your application and accept or reject you based on that. This means that you merely have to compete against everyone else in the application pool.

    • They wanted to know previous teaching experience, which is hard to come by during an undergrad degree.   Answer Question
