    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apollo Education Group in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview with the VP, then they scheduled me for a 3 hour interview, an hour later they changed it to a 4 hour, then another hour later they changed it to a 5 hour interview, then a couple of hours later they changed it to a 8 hours interview, so I asked then why they keep changing the time, they tell me that's their process. (What kind of process is that)
    So I decided not to move forward with the interview, because of their convoluted or lack of process

    Interview Questions

The only negative aspect of the interview experience was the required completion of company forms. The HR representative gave direction to a webpage that listed links to the forms but the links did not work.
