    Student Support Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Decatur, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DeVry University.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. I was contacted by HR and set up with a phone interview time. I then was asked to complete an online assessment and come in for a face to face interview. The interview went well, I believe. They said they would be in touch within a few weeks. After some time had passed I contacted them and was told a decision would be made that week. Two weeks late I contacted them again and asked for an update and was ignored completely. I have still not heard back and I must say I am very disappointed. Even if they chose someone else I would have expected to have been told. I think Devry would have been a great place to be!

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at DeVry University.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume to a recruiter, and was sent an e-mail to complete two assessments - one was a quantitative reasoning assessment, and the the other was a "judgment" assessment. I was informed by the recruiter on the same day that I completed the assessments that, while I did extremely well on the quantitative reasoning assessment, I did not meet requirements on the "judgment" assessment, and I was given best wishes in my job search. I wasn't even told WHY or HOW I didn't meet requirements. I assume that one has to have a certain type of temperament or belief system to even be called in for an interview, and I suppose that mine just didn't fit, which is a shame, as I enjoy helping people and I have loads of experience in proprietary education.

    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DeVry University.

    Interview Details

    Had 3 phone interviews and they required a philosophy of teaching and a vision and values statement. They pay $1500 a course and only pay when the course is over. They wasted my time because the first two interviews said nothing about me having never taught online being problematic. The final interview was courteous, but once she learned that i never taught on line she finished the interview quickly. I hate companies that waste my valuable time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DeVry University in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I got a call back from HR in IL a few days later. She wanted to set up a phone interview. I think I had to wait about a week until the phone interview. It was supposed to take about an hour and a half, but I think it took 20 min. Really easy questions: Do you like people, describe a situation where you had to choose who to help first, student or boss, stuff like that. I was just friendly and she immediately wanted to set me up for an in person interview. I found out later she interviews a bunch of people and then picks the top three to send in. She sent me an online assessment to do. It was dull. I had to wait over two weeks until someone was ready to interview me in person. She showed me around the area and everyone was really friendly. Some questions had to do with the situation they find themselves in right now; lay-offs, change of culture, etc. So she asked how I react to new co-workers/co-workers leaving, how I respond to students questions that seem stupid, etc. It's been a week now and I haven't hears back. I know I did well on the interview, but it's killing to not hear anything.
    tl;dr simple questions, nice atmosphere. Be nice and help students above all else.

    Executive Admissions Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DeVry University.

    Interview Details

    In my opinion, they have a very professional pre-screening process. There was terrific follow-up from the staff at headquarters. The on-site interviewer, himself, who has apparently enjoyed great success at the institution, appeared uninterested in me as a candidate for the job, basically minimizing my credentials and past performance at a similar institution. I was very disappointed with the way the interview went, but still hoped that things would work out somehow, as the staff at headquarters treated me very well.

    Operations Support Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westminster, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DeVry University in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was not particularly impressed by the interviewer who at the start of the interview indicated she was behind schedule (phone interview) so she wanted to push this call straight through. As a prospective candidate, they are either interested in you or not, and this led me to believe she was just following a course that she was required to take. Doesn't speak well of their hiring practices.

    Admissions Advisor I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DeVry University in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    This position was for the Online Programs Admissions Advisor I in Orlando,FL. First had a phone interview with someone for the IL headquarters. She called me 15 minutes late so I was pretty frustrated about that when she finally decided to call. The interview took about 30 minutes and she just asked standard behavioral questions, strengths and weaknesses, and asked me to go through my resume for her. About 15 minutes into the interview I heard dogs barking in the background. She freaked out and kept saying sorry that she was "working from home." She told me someone would be calling in 2 days schedule a face to face interview. Didn't actually get a call until two weeks later.

    The face to face interview wasn't that much better. I got there 10 minutes early for a 10AM appointment. I didn't get called in to see anyone until 10:45AM. Apparently the people at DeVry have no sense of punctuality. The interviewers (there were 2) were dressed in jeans and baggy t-shirts. One of them mentioned that it was casual Friday, but honestly if you know you're interview people you might want to dress a little nicer. The interview went well. They described the position and asked just about the same questions as during the phone interview. After the interview they put me with someone that was working to see what the a day working as an advisor would be like. They said they would get back to me in 3 buisness days and I still haven't heard back from anyone and it's been 2 weeks since I had my interview.
