    Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    Had one interview to land a student-worker job. Pretty straightforward. It's not really a matter of whether you fit, more of whether you're willing to do the work. Afterwards, it takes probably a week to get started on a project an working. The payment system is antiquated but I think they're finally moving towards a direct deposit option for all.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Duke University.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a lengthy one. After applying, I didn't hear anything for over a month. Later, I received a phone call from their HR department, and they gave me a phone screen. Next, I got a call from the hiring manager, then later a call from the department manager. They then asked me in for an in-person interview, then asked me to come back for a panel interview and a personality and skills test. It took forever.

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much room for negotiation, so make sure to demand the salary you want up front. Duke isn't known for giving big raises either, so you want to lock in your salary at a high number because years later you'll still be making about the same.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Duke University.

    Interview Details

    You come in for an interview with Erin, most likely, and one of the student supervisors. They ask you what you know about computers and so long as you know how to maintain your own computer with antivirus software, weekly cleanups, etc you should do fine. The software the OIT uses for clientele's computers just so happened to be the freeware I use on my own computer so I inadvertently showed I was savvy and they seemed pleased.
