    Average Interview

    Interview

    Fairly standard, with a strong focus on the STAR(L) Format (Situation, Task, Action, Result, Lessons Learned). Review with your RA beforehand, and highlight not only how you give back to the community, either MSU or other, but how you are still a student and you are learning--in academics, diversity and inclusion, time management, whatnot.

    Interview

    Friendly and efficient. I met with the entire team, not just the boss, in a conference room. Each took turns asking me questions about grammar and some SEO stuff. It was nice to be able to meet people I'd potentially be working with, instead of just those in charge.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Michigan State University in October 2019.

    Interview

    I received an email asking for an interview about a month after I sent in my application. The interview was with a 3-person panel where they each took turns asking questions. At the end of the interview, I was told that they would be in contact within a week, two at the latest. It has now been five weeks with no response, yet their recruiter responds. It’s pretty annoying to not even get a “no, we went with someone else” after interviewing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Michigan State University (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    It was clear they were going to hire a preselected internal candidate and only needed “outside” candidates to check the compliance box. One interviewer even joked about it. What a waste of everyone’s time.
