    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno.

    Interview

    For on campus student jobs, utilize the career studio in crafting your resume. Arrive early to your interview dressed professionally. This means no jeans. Personality plus is necessary in this interview. Also, taking 15 credits a semester or 30 credits a year is required in almost all departments. The university is a great place to work for students who can balance their courses and are already to be professional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno in March 2017.

    Interview

    Short. I suspect they had a candidate in mind and I was just a filler interview. They appeared inexperienced with video conference interviewing and uncomfortable with it. They did contact me very shorty after I applied. The job posting had just ended, but this is still unusual for higher ed in my experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you comfortable using hand tools? Apparently there was a part of the job duties that was left out of the job description that they were not aware of. Also, I was asked what part of the job would be most challenging to me, before I had a good sense of the job. Am I comfortable climbing ladders? No indication was given on how often or how much.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno (Reno, NV) in December 2015.

    Interview

    First you apply online via their jobs portal. If they validate your application as eligible, they may call to schedule a phone interview. They will then email to confirm you are not selected or will contact you for on-campus interview.
    Note: If you are talented, highly-skilled and knowledgeable in the field of computer science, you may want to downplay it with these folks. They definitely are not looking for technical rock-stars.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno (Reno, NV) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There was no interview process because I was recommended by a friend. I went in and did paperwork and got the job. If you were to interview, the interview would consist of basic questions such as what your schedule is like to see if you are able to work the times needed, and that is about it. The overall process is really easy.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno.

    Interview

    TA offered with acceptance. So there really is no hiring and interview process. If you are not offered a TA, I guess there may be an interview process. Talk to the DGS.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations for TAs.

    Interview

    I applied for the sysadmin position and about a week later got called to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was typical in introducing myself and a basic gauge of my technical skills with the search committee. The committee consisted of staff within IT and other staff of the departments that I would be supporting. A week later I was asked to interview. The interview process was about 7 hours long meeting with multiple IT departments and groups within the departments I would be supporting. A tour of campus along with breakfast and lunch was provided.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no technical test. They asked lots of questions based on situations and "what-would-you-do"s. Every now and then a technical question was thrown in especially from the other server and sys admins - ex. how would you go about editing policy in AD.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Compensation was higher than what I expected, so I had no complaints.

    The interview was 30 - 40 minutes with a 6-member panel. Greeting was warm and friendly. Each member of the team asked one or two questions, with little or no feedback during the interview.
