    Interview

    For civil service positions at SIU Clinics, you have to submit the application packet online, this may include transcripts and proof of certification. The next step is to go in for the civil service exam, for this position I took two exams. The top three exam scores are then sent in for interviews when a position becomes available. Interview was a bit informal, but very thorough. They asked all of the standard questions about background, why I wanted the job, ect. There were two people interviewing me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Southern Illinois University.

    Interview

    It was quite enjoyable. They wanted to know about my experience with different cultures, and were looking for someone who wasn't hesitant to do anything, and I mean, anything. It's not like I was hired to do the dirty work because my boss was equally engaged in everything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was not to difficult I just had to send in a resume and my unofficial transcripts. The process is still ongoing so I am not sure where I stand, but thus far it has been easy to get through each and every individual step. Nothing to be intimidated about since it is an entry level job at a university made for college students.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Illinois University (Springfield, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    3 person interview, basic questions regarding the position, the only problem is that 2 of the 3 people there, I had interviewed with before, as such they came in with previous prejudices, even though I tested in the top 3. I felt one person was so disinterested she acted as if she had ADD, would not even engage until she told one person that I had interviewed with them before, she acted as if she was disgusted in having to be there.

    Interview

    I was recruited at the part-time job fair at our college. I had a brief conversation there with my current boss, who just wanted to know what kind of experience with IT and programming I had. I got an email from him about a job that same day, and the next day I went in for the interview. There was a panel of the current employees there, and they asked me again about my experience, what sort of classes I was taking, how many hours I could work, etc. They also asked me some of the famous Google interview questions, for good measure.
