    Security Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I tested for my abilities and experience in this type of work. I was then contacted by a supervisor who set up an interview within the week. I sat before a board of 5 very professional and experienced public safety employees who, in a very relaxed environment asked me specific questions and for examples of my past experiences. This was rather refreshing being that they were not the usual interview questions.

    Student Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. Come prepared with a basic resume (or in some cases the one you previously submitted is enough). Usually another student is doing the interview so it feels very laid back; however, this definitely does not make it any less serious. A big part of the interview was the interviewer giving a hypothetical situation with a customer and asking you how you would handle the situation. They are especially looking for strong leadership skills.

    I did a first round in person interview with Ohio State. It was a really simple and straight forward interview. Alll of their questions were based on their 4 core values - community, learning, inclusion, and wellness. There was one question for each value, and it was basically "How do you incorporate x into your work?"
