CPC Processor Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Career Education in May 2009.
Interview Details – Recruiter called and said I have been selected for a group interview. Group interview consisted of 8 seekers and three managers. One manager was held up, so we waited while the other did small talk. Thought the time could have been used better to tell about the company or culture. Each manager took a turn asking a question around the table. If you were last asked, all the "answers" had been said. Seemed rushed and uncomfortable. This technique did not allow for any conversation, and don't feel like the managers got a chance to get to know you. The position was not presented well, managers harped on the negatives (Saturdays, heavy workload).
Interview Question – Give an example of a time when you messed up, how you told your boss and what you did to fix it. View Answer
Senior QA Analyst Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Career Education.
Interview Details – Applied online. Contacted by one recruiter a month later. Contacted by different recruiter two weeks after that. Had phone interview. Recruiter couldn't answer basic questions about the position. Said she'd present me to the hiring manager. Never heard back.
Interview Question – Lots of soft skill questions like, name adjectives that describe you, tell me about a time where you had to present information to others etc. Nothing really about testing software. Answer Question
Project Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Career Education in March 2009.
Interview Details – Discussed opportunities with the organization, but the salary and benefits where not what I expected.
Interview Question – Where did you plan on being in 10 years? Answer Question
Human Resources Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Career Education in February 2010.
Interview Details – I had an initial phone screen that was very typical, then went for 3 one on one interviews. The first person seemed very set in their way not flexible, the second was very disorganized and the third person I spoke with was very open, intelligent and honest.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deliver disappointing news to a manager. How did it go and what was the outcome? Answer Question
