Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The University of Alabama in March 2011.

Interview

The process is very nice. Interviewees take you very seriously and are very aware of the job requirements. The time frame is pretty lengthy. It took quite a while to hear back for final selections. I had several friends who did not get a position as an RA and they were not told they were not selected--it was just silence.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Online interview for returning RAs. Recorded from home, approximately 30 minutes long. Questions were about personality, job focus, mediation experience, programming objectives, ideas and goals. Time to answer questions was limited, but the interview could be re-recorded numerous times with one final submission. The only issue was that you had to answer all ten questions every time you resubmitted.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL).

    Interview

    After filling out the necessary paperwork, you are required to attend one of several interview sessions all ran by current RAs. These sessions are broke into 4 parts. The first part is the standard panel interview. The next session is used in order to judge your creativity. The last two sections both deal with how you interact with people. This is used in order to judge who has the leadership qualities necessary to perform the RA job effectively.
