    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Buena Vista University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The co-workers and environment at BVU make it feel like a home, full of family and friends.
    The benefits are great.
    Opportunity for promotion.

    Cons

    This is a smaller institution in northwest Iowa. Those moving to the area may struggle to find activities within the community if they are more familiar with the hustle and bustle of a city.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, thinking about the students first.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Buena Vista University in September 2015.

    Interview

    The committee was very friendly, down-to-earth, and straightforward. I had a panel of three people and was asked relevant questions, went through about 5 rounds of questions from each of them. They offered me water and it was very non-stress.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle stress? Describe a time when things got stressful.
