    Interview Details

    Standard interview process. Started with phone screening with behavioral questions and situational reactions. Took about an hour to complete. I was then contacted within a week and was brought in the week after for a face to face interview. Met with 4 senior managers, who asked standard interview questions and how I'd react in certain situations.

    The interview was actually really nice, quite informal. I went in, spoke with the manager for about a half hour, and then joined the rest of the team for questions. In all it was about an hour.

    Group interview with 15 other candidates. We met with all the managers in the Financial Aid department, including the VP and CFO. Each candidate had one on one time with a manager. After the interview, the manager called me and said she was interested in bringing me back for a second interview to meet with the director and VP. After the second interview, HR emailed me a typing test and a reference check to complete. The whole process took about 2 weeks.

    It went very well, a little bit of waiting but very pleased. Started out as a standard e-mail response from saying they sent my information to a hiring manager. A week later had a phone interview. Another week later had a three hour interview. A week later, got a phone call from the manager and then a follow up call from HR about offer detials. Another week later, I was sitting in orientation. Took a little time but went very smooth.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at American Public University System in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was sent a few question that I had to write a response for and email back. I was then contacted for a phone interview, with pretty standard interview questions. I then had an in-person interview, where I had additional basic interview questions and detail questions based on my phone interview. They then gave me basic office software to assess my knowledge (word, excel, ect).

    Everyone was very down-to-earth and friendly. They were having a birthday party for another department while I was there and I could hear them socializing. It seemed like everyone was getting along well.
