    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Career Education (Schaumburg, IL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was a list of simulated situation questions. It was a two person interview with manager and a senior team member. After each question by the manager the team member was asked if they had questions and they never did. At the end a comment was made by the team member and that was it. There was also a computer test that required basic knowledge where you had to find mistakes. All-in-all it was a fairly straight forward interview, not difficult at all. There was a subsequent second interview with a different manager and the head of the department. Those questions were about how you would fit in with the team.
