    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oregon State University.

    Interview

    Only one question on technical skill, the rest on customer service skills and experiences. Large emphasis on "we will train the right person for the job if they don't have the necessary skill" over getting people with skill. Questions were also more of "what would you do in this situation" type over questions about experience and skills.

    Interview

    Simple, and straight forward interview. Mine was over WebEx and not in person, although the follow up interview for hiring is in person. The questions are simple and straight forward, they know you don't have much experience and that you're looking just for a little pay to help with school.
