    • If you have been in this industry, its a cake walk. If you have been in sales, you should be good. If you are at an entry-level, may need to research this career field first.   Answer Question

    Told you one thing, then you show up on your first day and find out its significantly less. When you ask why, they give you some lame answer.

    I would not work here as I believe this to be a firm lacking in ethics. Students are pushed thru process, grades and attendance are adjusted so students qualify for govt aid, which goes to the school. Placement stats are adjusted to please regulators.

    Educational Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn Center, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Rediculously drawn out interview process. I had multiple phone interviews, group interviews, and 1:1 interviews with a number of different people who were never clear on the next step in the process or when a decision would be made. I was told a final decision would be made multiple times more than 2 months before final decision was actually made.

    Interview Questions
    • What skills do you have that you believe will prepare you for this career?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non-existent. All decisions come down from corporate and your input means nothing. Don't expect calling and requesting an update on status to warrant any results. Chances are the person who interviewed you has no idea where your application stands.

    This was the most unorganized business I have ever been to. I went in for an interview and the director had left. She didn't tell anyone to contact me. I told the girl at the desk to forget it and that I could not work in such an unorganized place.

    The process took a day - interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the Director of Recruiting for a Phone interview. I was asked to complete a short Skills test online and come in for a group interview. I arrived at the group interview, and I was the only one there. I talked for a few minutes with the Director of Recruiting, and then I took a longer skills test and a personality test. He said they would contact me within a couple days for a second interview if my tests went well. I never heard back from them. I tried following up, but my calls were sent to voicemail by the receptionist.

    Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the director who asked if I was interested in the position. I told her I was interested, and she emailed a test. I passed the wonderlic test, and I came to a group orientation. When I arrived for the group orientation, the director told all of the applicants to follow her to a computer lab. I was really surprised by the director because she was a very young and attractive woman (probably 25 years old). She was dressed professionally. She graduated in three years with a Bachelor of Science from a University that I have never even heard of, and she majored in a subject I never even knew existed. At that age, it shocked me that she was already a director. But there was a good chance that she was with the company for four years. There were some refreshments during the group orientation, but they were dreadful. The group orientation involved the director and her colleagues giving a presentation about the company. Then, they asked if there were questions. The group orientation involved two tests: wonderlic and personality. There is a time limit on the wonderlic test; the personality test is untimed. The final part was a face to face 5 minute interview with the director. During the interview, I was told if the company was interested, I would be contacted. The results of the tests were available to the company the next day, so I am presuming I failed the tests. Albeit I contacted the director after taking the tests, the director never contacted me for a second interview. They measure the wonderlic by the number of questions you answered correctly. If you answered 15 out of 50 correct, then that is equivalent to answering 15 out of 30 correct. The vocabulary questions were rudimentary because it involved comprehending the meaning of words. Nevertheless, there were questions about shapes and math that were absurd. My biggest gripes are the tests. All of the tests were completely irrelevant to the job description. How does answering a word problem about velocity of a train or analyzing multiple graphs prepare you for this job? These tests should never be used a barometer to measure how well you can do the job.

    Educational Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online, responding from a posting on the company's website. About 1 week after I applied I received a call that asked me if I would be willing to come in for "the next step in the process". I showed up at the selected time and waited about 20 minutes when someone came to greet me and take me to do a skills/intelligence test. They asked me if I had a copy of my resume because their 'computer wont print it out correctly.' After the test was over, I notified the recruiter and waited for them to collect my scores. After retrieving my scores they said they would like to do an interview and gave me the option of doing one then or the next day. During the interview the recruiter was extremely friendly but also a bit rudely sarcastic. It became apparent pretty fast that the recruiter thought I was not qualified and didn't have enough experience for the entry-level position. The recruiter then asked me to give her a description of the job I was applying for and I responded, listing 3-4 major things from the job description that I had read. She then responded saying "that's not bad for knowing nothing about the job" and told me that this was a "sales" position and mentioned nothing else but the sales aspect of the job. (After leaving I reviewed the job description and the words 'sale,' 'sales,' 'product' or anything even implying a "sales" position was not listed.)

    The interview consisted of roughly 9-10 questions about my previous experience in customer service/sales including very standard questions (tell me of a time when you... 'dealt with a difficult customer,' 'had problems with a co-worker,' 'did an excellent job selling'...including the resolution of the story). Throughout the interview we were interrupted a few different times because the recruiter had phone calls. The recruiter then told me some about the salary and benefits of working with ITT Tech, asked if I had any questions, and then said if they were interested they would contact me for another interview very soon.

    While the interview wasn't particularly hard, I would have liked to have been respected a little more. I was familiar with the job description and stated that to the recruiter but because I didn't interpret the job description and boil it all down to 'sales' I was labeled as someone who was applying for a job they knew nothing about. The phone calls were beyond rude in my opinion. I turn my phone off when I come to an interview, the least they should do is notify the secretary they are unable to take calls for the next 15 min.

    While I would label this experience as negative, it only seemed to characterize the HR staff. The secretary and other workers that passed through the office were extremely kind and friendly. The HR staff however, had overwhelmed themselves with interviews (each of the phone calls taken during my interview were from other interviewees that were calling to check on their status and while I was waiting in the lobby initially there were at least 2-3 calls for the same thing and one other person waiting to be interviewed.) and i believe it affected their professionalism.

    Advice:
    1) Go to a group recruiting introduction. (they seemed to favor these and my recruiter seemed to imply they give you good information about the positions available)
    2) Prepare answers to typical entry-level 'sales' and 'customer service' questions. This will be your interview.
