    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a call about 5 days later with a brief phone interview with basic questions such as: What interested you about this position? What was your start and end salary of your last job? What would your minimum required salary would be? Etc. Was then asked to come in for an interview the next day. That interview consisted of about 20 situational questions such as: "Describe a time you had to deal with a disgruntled customer/what did you do to solve the problem." Most questions were "Describe a time when". Interviewer (and supervisor to this position) was looking out the window half the time while both asking questions and listening to answers- not engaged or welcoming. I asked follow up questions that seemed to be unexpected and a little unwelcome such as, "What have people in this position gone on to do- is there a healthy internal promotion plan or did they leave to go work elsewhere." Answer: left to work elsewhere and retired. Not a good sign. Asked what a day's work looked like. Answer: 90% phone work. Was told they weren't technically "cold calling", but later was informed that they do. At least two nights a week required until 9pm and every other Saturday (holidays included). Was shown the office and it is a call center with tiny half-cubicles with 12 others in small space all wearing headphones making repeat phone calls. Was told by employee who gave me a tour that, other than himself, people don't stick around very long in that position.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you balance strict required quotas/deadlines while still providing quality customer service. (Don't think its a good sign that they are already letting you know that will be an issue.)   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    Was scheduled to come back in for a follow up interview with the director but decided to cancel after seeing how the first interview revealed that the job description was a little misleading.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    Based on different Sales and HR related questions given by the Director of Recruitment and the Director of the campus. The interviews were more based on how you carried your self in an admissions environment then, what experience you had. An example is the director of recruitment asked how I would sale a student on our school, and I said the value of education is ever giving, the only debt that you can see that adds personal value to you as an individual.

    Adjunct Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    Interview was typical. First portion was a screening company asking a set of questions online; second part was in person interview, including a short "demonstrate teach."

    The curriculum for each class is pre-set and includes PPs, handouts, and graded activities for each chapter. The grade book is set to record each assignment from the syllabus, so you have no opportunity to pick and choose topics / assignments according to class composition. It is often very hard to present the certain material to the wide range of academic levels and abilities within the student body. Some students can barely read, some feel the assignments are too easy and get frustrated that they are required to complete such primary work. Since you, the instructor, is evaluated on attendance, you must find a way to make sure each student finds value in coming to class each week.

    Peer tutoring is not readily accepted by many of the the advanced students because they feel they are not advancing their knowledge. Sometimes peer teaching reinforces learning for the advanced students, but in many cases I have found the academic divide too great and shared their frustration. My solution to the problem has been to create enrichment activities with enough direction for the more advanced students that would not distract me from the teaching and helping those students working on the required assignments by the other students.

    I often find myself walking the fine line of using classroom management and human psychology to keep the class feeling united.

    Being an adjunct means that you are only there for your class time and that limits your opportunity of meeting other staff members. It can provide a sense of freedom, but it can also contribute to obstacles in collaboration with fellow colleagues and support staff.

    Finally, being an adjunct means you never know whether you are teaching a class until a few days before the quarter begins. In addition, the Department Chairs have recently been required to increase their teaching loads and that has reduced the number of adjunct jobs.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing unexpected, I was asked if I could work mornings, afternoons and/or evenings.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Given the uncertainty of getting a class for the term and low pay of $24-28 an hour (excluding time for preparation / creation of special assignments / grading, copying handouts [copier always breaking down], making weekly phone calls to each absent student, completing 2 mandatory online classes for continuing education each term and attending at least 2 faculty meetings per quarter), I would recommend this job as a hobby or an outlet for community service, not as a money maker.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    standard application: applied online, scheduled 1st interview with Director of Recruitment, then 2nd interview with campus Director, and should you be hired - a ton of hr paperwork. At the time, I was given a call right before the new year in 2006 rolling into 2007. The director of recruitment ask if I was still available and scheduled an interview date and time. I flew in from the San Francisco immediately. I have to say that I was informed regarding my general duties. A few days into training, I realized that I was in a sales environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Why I was considering moving to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay Area? The director at the time was very curious as to why I was willing to take a pay cut from my current job and relocate to Washington State.   View Answer

    Phone interview, face-to-face, back ground check, meeting with director of college, hired.
    The phone interview is not bad, they just ask you the basic questions.

    Full of misleading information. They give you one job description and you'll end up doing something totally different. Its a complete sham. Don't let them trick you. You'll work every weekend, many nights, and holidays doing thankless work that in next to impossible to meet their expectations. If you have a life, real ambition, or a conscience don't do it.

    Director of Career Services Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with the District Manager first. Once you complete that interview and are still being considered, you interview with the Campus Director. If you are still being considered at this point, a phone interview with the National Director of Career Services will be conducted. Offer will be made by Campus Director. Make sure you negotiate your salary to obtain the highest possible salary. I did not negotiate and I am stuck with a below average salary for a functional manager.

    Interview Questions
    • This question would be for someone who is already employed in Career Services with the company. I was asked about my conversion rates. How many phone calls do I need to make to produce enough job orders. How many job orders do you need to develop a certain number of interviews. How many interviews do you need to schedule to ensure the proper number of employments are made each week.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't one. I asked if that salary was final and was told yes.
