    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at The Ohio State University.

    Interview

    I went in for the interview and the supervisor told what the job entailed and asked me a few general questions. He had basically decided to hire me before I even came in for the interview. If you are fortunate to e-mail or contact at the right time, you've pretty much got the job because there are no real qualifications. It's just an entry level job.

    Interview

    It cannot be called an interview since it is just a free conversation about what you like. Like what do you think of something. I cannot remember what the question is. But it is a great interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Ohio State University (Columbus, OH (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Position was for Fisher College of Business. Applied online and heard from them really quickly - within a day - which from what I've gathered is pretty amazing since everyone says OSU tends to have a slow hiring process. Interview was scheduled for about a week later with a director and associate director. The staff was extremely friendly and easy to talk comfortably around. They were very team oriented and presented a fun fast-paced work environment. Asked quite a few questions but were also very informative and it was nice that they told me exactly what they liked about my resume from the get-go so I knew what skills to focus on when I answered. At the end, they said they would be in contact with me within a week or two because they were hoping to hire quickly. It's been almost a week - fingers crossed.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Ohio State University in January 2015.

    Interview

    From the time of the application to the time of an actual first interview was about 3-4 weeks. Interview was good and conducted in a professional manner. The questions were all about what you would expect for the position. If you do your homework you should be fine as long as someone's friend isn't pegged for the position.
