    Interview

    Very indepth process for a part time low paying job. Interviews were pre-written questions asked to every graduate student worker who had a interview. Panel interview where if you did not expect it would have been intimidating. Everyone was nice but were not comforatable in the interview. You culd tell human resources played no role in training hiring manager on interview techniques

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at West Virginia University in December 2016.

    Interview

    HR was clueless about the job itself and transferring from a student role to a staff role. My immediate supervisor could have answered the questions, but we weren't allowed to talk until the hiring process was completed.

    Anonymous Employee in Morgantown, WV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at West Virginia University (Morgantown, WV) in May 2016.

    Interview

    You provide a list of what courses you have taken, and what classes you would feel comfortable teaching. They give you a fair amount of leeway if you have attended WVU for your undergraduate studies. For certain classes, the teacher's pick which students they want teaching the associated labs. If there is a lab that you really want to teach, it may be worth approaching the associated teacher directly before-hand.

    Resident Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Morgantown, WV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at West Virginia University (Morgantown, WV) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a combination of group and two private interviews. The group interview showed that you were able to work together with others effectively instead of overshadowing others while ranking safety concerns. Then there were two private interview conducted by a panel of 5 people. 4 of the five people were student resident assistants, and 1 was the resident hall coordinator of a resident hall. Beyond this process, I was also called to two follow up interviews conducted by the Resident Hall Coordinator of the hall I was being considered for.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked situational questions to see how you would respond to a problem. They also asked questions such as "Why do you think you stand out among all of the other applicants?"   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at West Virginia University (Morgantown, WV) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal. Random interview questions. It was very laxed to the point that was wondering if it was a casual conversation. Or a real interview. This most certainly due to WVU not giving sufficient training to their employees. They are about twenty years behind any normal enterprise.
