    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and laid back. It was a group interview where they told me a lot about the company and asked my own personal interests. There was four different people at the interview and they were very nice. They went into specifics about the job and pay. They also asked me about my own personal experience and work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    My employer was looking for someone to assist in organizing her radio show; the process was smooth and professional, nothing out of the ordinary. I could see that she was indeed in need of someone who could help her get things in order and do the small things so she could focus on the big things.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Standard questions, polite interviewers, but there were more people in the room than I expected. Overall the interview was a pretty simple one. They are look for well rounded, stable employees who they can trust to be nice/friendly to students.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There was a group interview with the entire office staff (about 15 members). Each person asked about 2-3 questions each. This part of the interview lasted about an hour, then there was a personal interview with the supervisor and assistant that only lasted about 15-20 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The office dynamics seemed out-of-sorts - some acted superior and entitled.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Arkansas.

    Interview

    Interview process is to meet first with the hiring committee (4 - 5 people), then with a group of potential co-workers who weren't on the hiring committee once you're a finalist (4 - 5 different people), then with the potential direct supervisor and the supervisor's boss once you're a final finalist. The interview by committee can be pretty nerve-wracking, but mostly they try to put you at ease.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't really get any memorably difficult or unexpected questions; it was all pretty standard, except for the sheer number of people on the panel, which I'd never experienced before (I had been accustomed to 1:1 interviews). They seemed inexperienced at interviewing, so mostly they were taking turns reading questions for me from a list.   Answer Question

    Administrative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Bentonville, AR).

    Interview

    Way too much waiting. The interview process took about 5 weeks with 3 interviews total (1 phone interview and 2 in person panel interviews). 5 weeks was how long it took them to tell me they needed someone who already knew the computer system, and that was my ONLY downfall. Otherwise i was a great candidate according to them. This was for a very entry level role, meaning skills are easily taught. my advice—start as a RazorTemp if you really want to work here and if you were never a student. Its not completely the university’s fault, its the government that makes these extensive requirments for employment. Nonetheless, a lot of my time and energy was wasted. I cant stand how political everything has become!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, a week and half later I got a call for a phone interview with a panel of 2. Few days later I got asked for an in person interview with a panel of 7, told to give them two weeks for background checks and HR paperwork. A little past 2 weeks I got a call that said the process was taking a little longer but I should hear something by the end of the week and that they were doing my background check. That took a couple days and then I was officially offered the position. All in all the process took a little less than a month but everyone was very pleasant and straight forward.

    Interview

    Formality. You're going to be interviewed by people who already know you, and already want you to have the job. So if you're not in a position where you can network, don't count on getting a better job on campus, even if you are more qualified than your competitor.
