    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Grand Canyon University in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly quick, however HR dropped the ball many times. I only interviewed with my direct supervisor and the team, but many coworkers interviewed with upper-level departmental management. HR got my information wrong and it took an extended period of time to do my background check, which was a little frustrating. They also did not give me specific information about my first day. I had to find my manager on LinkedIn and ask for information on where to go and at what time.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Grand Canyon University in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I did not actually interview in person - I spoke on the phone to HR and I submitted my paperwork via email. My supervisor was very kind, and it was a fairly easy process. I was emailed all of the paperwork required by a field supervisor, and I completed them on my computer and then forwarded them to the University. I was required to complete paperwork for each student I was assigned to supervise.

    Interview Questions
    • Why did I leave my previous teaching position?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no "negotiation" at all. They pay $550. per student per semester. Period. Take it or leave it. Problem was, they don't take out taxes (it killed me the next year because I didn't estimate taxes) and they don't pay mileage.
