    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.

    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.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morgantown, WV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at West Virginia University (Morgantown, WV) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Aside from taking about 3 months to respond and giving very short notice (<24hr) for the interview, I found WVU's format to be very awkward. A panel of four staff members read questions one after another and were not allowed to comment or respond to me. It was very awkward did not allow for any connection or rapport to form between myself or the interviewers. I assume this is University policy, so I would be prepared to answer in short essay form and know that there will be little opportunity for course correction.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at West Virginia University (Morgantown, WV) in January 2015.

    Interview

    First I interviewed with HR, then the actual department, then there was a background check before I could be officially hired. The HR department typed my answers into an iPad, but I am not sure this interview mattered because they sent me pretty quickly to interview with the department. I think the HR interview could only hurt you if you answered questions really poorly or created huge red flags.
