    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UC Santa Barbara (Isla Vista, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple and straightforward. They are very understanding of students and the work environment in there. You simply apply online and they ask to interview and then decide if you get hired. I would recommend bringing a resume with you to the interview as it helped my friend who was also applying for the job get hired.

    Interview Questions

    • The toughest question they asked was what I would do if I found a friend of mine or someone I know in a situation that incriminates him/her.   Answer Question
