    Interview

    There were four interviewers. They asked me 10 questions one by one. It lasted for about one hour. It was very intensive for me at that time. But I think that it was a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kansas State University.

    Interview

    I was referred by a faculty member who already knew my background and was qualified for the summer position, being an incoming senior. Once I turned in my application(provided by faculty member) I received an email for an interview. This was with a faculty member I was already familiar with, so it went casually. We went through a series of situational interview questions in his office, and once all the students who applied were interviewed, we received an email on who had the summer position.

    Basically just asked my availability for student worker at the dining center, nothing else. It was super easy and I didn’t have any problems. The dining centers are always looking for people, so if you are a student, they will pretty much always hire you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS (US)).

    Interview

    I sent an email containing my resume, cover letter, and references to HR. I was then contacted via email to set up a time for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was emailed to set up a time for an in-person interview and walk-through. Approximately two weeks later, I received a phone call offering me the job contingent on a clear background check. I completed the necessary documents via email. The whole process from applying to starting work took about 2 months. Although the process is now different, everything is on the internet. No need to email an HR individual with everything, just apply and upload documents on the website.
