    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle University (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a different job at SU. A lady emailed me back saying that I was not selected for that job. She said after looking at my resume she said I apply for Sr. Operations Assistant and provided a link to the job posting. I did so. A few days later I received an email asking for a phone interview. A week later I received an email that I did not get the job.
