    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Park University (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    The interview was in a typical style. The first interview was over the phone and held with three people within the department. They asked me about myself as well as my experiences in other jobs. The next interview was held in person at the school with several people from the department. Each one asked questions about my experiences and typical interview questions. Everyone was really nice and welcoming.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Park University.

    Interview

    No Hiring or interviewing process. None what so ever. For student workers they will accept any and all. It was quite crazy. and I mean crazy. No over sight, no work. Just sit down and get paid to be yelled at for not doing a job that no one told you to do.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    none. 8 an hour flat

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Park University.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Park University shortly after applying online. They conducted a phone interview with me and then proceeded with an on-site interview the following week. The position only required a HS Diploma and 1-2 years of experience. Well, I have a college degree in Technical Writing and was looking for beginner work while taking some Grad classes. However, I was more than qualified for the position.

    When I walked into the Admin. Office, all of the employees were middle-aged and older women. I could automatically tell that there was a "click" type atmosphere in the office. The interview itself went well. Typical interview, but we just sat around in a circle with no table inside a small personal office (odd).

    A week after my interview I was called and told that I was not selected for the position. This was a shock, but after reading other reviews of the college on Glassdoor, I knew why I was not selected. Turns out they hired another middle-aged woman to fit in with their group. It didn't seem like the office liked change or competition of any kind.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Park University (Parkville, MO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    On the day of the interview I had to take a computer typing test and pass with a 75%. The test was based on grammar, spelling and how many words you could type in 5-10 minutes. I passed after one attempt. Im sure if you were a nice person they would let you attempt the test twice. The interview after that was quick and simple.
