    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at 2U.

    Interview Details

    Very casual interview. HR recruiter had great energy and you could tell she really enjoys working for the company. It was an overall great interview and I am waiting to hear back about when I may be meeting with the hiring manager.

    Interview Details

    The process wasn't too bad. I did a phone interview and then an in-person interview. They didn't offer a relocation package prior to me staring. Not sure if that has changed. It wasn't too extensive or over bearing. I referred my best friend and she got the job and her experience was very similar to my own.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at 2U in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview, with pretty basic questions, about my strengths, weaknesses, work history, etc. It was made clear that this was a sales position with expectations of up to 100 calls per day. Since this was not clear from the job posting, it was good to learn this from the phone interview. It would not have been a good fit.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at 2U.

    Interview Details

    Received an email letting me know that I would be going through an initial phone interview with HR. HR interview was pretty basic, as though she were reading off a piece of paper. Later interviews over the phone with Director, and came in for an in-person interview afterwards. All seemed pretty straight-forward. Nothing exceptional, and felt like they were just trying to meet a quota.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at 2U.

    Interview Details

    Interview process lasted over two months with long stretches in between contacts. Over 4 interviews between the recruiter and the hiring manager. Process was painful and didn't end in an offer, but all of the people I spoke with were very nice and passionate about the work they did with the company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at 2U in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted a few days later for a phone screening by HR. We set up an in-person interview for the following day at the office with the hiring manager. The interview went great. It was very relaxed and I felt really comfortable. Everyone in the office was nice and it looked like a great place to work with other young professionals. I emailed the recruiter after the interview and I was told she would be in touch but I never heard back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at 2U in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter and scheduled an in person interview while we were still on the phone. The in person interview consisted of three 30 min one on one interviews with a director, manager, and senior admissions counselor. Questions were pretty basic and you could tell that they were evaluating firm fit but also team fit.

    They wanted me to start only 1 week after I was made the offer and I negotiated to start a bit later in order to give a proper 2 weeks notice at the job I was leaving. I did not try to negotiate anything else.
