Difficult Interview

Admissions Advisor I Interview

Admissions Advisor I

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DeVry University in July 2011.

Interview Details – Received an email from a recruiter. Spoke to recruiter in a phone interview. Took personality and basic math skills tests online. Came in for in person interview - 2 people interviewed me at once. Had to get a drug screen test and they also had to verify that I had a Bachelor's degree. Got the offer a week later.

Adjunct Professor Interview

Adjunct Professor
Chesapeake, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at DeVry University in July 2012.

Interview Details – I received a call back in mid-July and interviewed with the Dean of Academic Affairs for a position that began in late August. The first interview was 30 minutes, covering the basics - and there was nothing remarkable about it. I passed the screen. The second interview was a simulated classroom test, teaching to the Dean. He sought a highly interactive style of teaching in which every student would be asked a question at least once per session.

Interview Question – Nothing was very difficult but I was asked to compute the CPI in the classroom session.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I took what they offered, but the contract was not made available until the day before classes began. This was a bit off-putting but I wanted the job, so I took a chance, and had no regrets.

Typically, once in the interview process a candidate will need to interview three different managers before an offer will be provided.

Very Easy Interview

Student Support Interview

Student Support
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at DeVry University.

Interview Details – Hiring and Interview Process was very professional and quick for me personally; however, judging by some of the other employees that worked here, I am constantly wondering how they managed to get a job at ALL, let alone with DeVry (they were VERY incompetent, unprofessional, and lacking critical thinking skills).

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions; they were all very "standard" and robotic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my salary - my starting salary was $9,000.00 more than the bottom "base" salary.
