    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at 2U (Landover, MD).

    Interview

    Relatively standard. Phone interview followed by a couple in-person interviews at one time. The questions were not very probing. Seemed as if everyone who interviewed me had a totally different agenda. I was told I would receive a decision by a certain date, and that date was pushed back three times.

A week and a half later I received an email saying I was still being considered and would hear back shortly. Three days later I got a call saying I wouldn't be moving forward.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at 2U.

    Interview

    It was a pretty typical process. They followed up from an online application, scheduled a phone interview, and then scheduled an in person interview. It did feel rushed. They mentioned they would want me to start in less than two weeks. It was a fast process.

    Interview

    2 Phone interviews and 1 in person interview.
    Everyone was very friendly and nice; definitely interesting culture. It took about 2 weeks to for them to get back to me about the final decision that they decided to go with other candidate. Very fast process during phone interviews - HR set up an interview with driector of the admissions dept immediately.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at 2U.

    Interview

    I received an email for Placement Specialist when I initially applied for Student Support Advisor. They wanted to schedule a phone interview ASAP. After the phone interview, I received an email later that afternoon asking for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was scheduled for the following week. I was told in the email who I would be meeting with and their roles. In the interview they mentioned they may want me to speak with other managers, which did end up occurring the following week. Within 5 days of the 3rd interview, I had an offer and they wanted me to make a decision as soon as possible.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online at the beginning of December. I didn't hear back until recently (middle of January). I figure it is because of the holiday most people are out of the office. We scheduled a phone interview and I was initially interviewing for one position but the recruiter felt I would be better in a different specialty. Nothing crazy in the interview. Hiring Manager interview to follow.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't difficult just unexpected. They asked me to calculate GPA (which I totally blanked of course).   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at 2U (Landover, MD) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on a Sunday afternoon and received an email on Tuesday requesting a phone interview. I had the phone interview on Friday and later that day was invited to an in person interview. At the in person interview I met with an HR representative, the person who would be my supervisor, and a person currently in the position I applied for. Everyone was very professional the whole time. However, all three people asked me the same questions. I felt like I was just repeating the same answers multiple times. It didn't seem like there was much coordination between the people I was interviewing with.
