    I have been working at Boise State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, staff really tries to help you develop skills, easy to get around school schedule if you are a student

    Cons

    The pay could be better I am a Manager getting $8.25 and most other departments pay $10.00. Should be consistent among all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Min. wage in Idaho is $7.25 which is impossible for Student to live off of. I think they should raise student employment salary to at least $9.00min amongst all departments. It's hard to have a good position for over a year now with the school but feel like you're working long hours with little payoff/benefits.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boise State University in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very quick, for a government agency. I submitted my application online which included completing the electronic form as well as uploading a word/PDF resume and cover letter. The position was open for 2 weeks. About 3 days after the interview closed I received a call to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview occurred approximately a week after the closing date. The phone interview was a conference call with 3 people. They asked the typical behavioral/situational questions. About half a week later I received a call to do an in-person interview. The in-person interview was schedule for an hour and 15 minutes and was broken into 2 components: a practical assessment (45 minutes) and interview with all available office staff (45 minutes).
