    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Willamette University (Salem, OR) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Sent in a cover letter and an interview, had single in-person interview. Mostly asked simple situational questions. The interview was mostly just talking about why I wanted a job with admission and why I was enthusiastic about the university. I had to explain what I didn't like about the university.
