Admissions Counselor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ashford University.

Interview Details

I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter who sounded very rushed and busy. I then had a face-to-face interview at their corporate headquarters at Evening Creek. The building was very nice, but the girl at the reception area seemed overworked. 1-on-1 interview with HR.

Interview Questions
  • Questions weren't the hardest, but were geared around my ability to recruit new students and what my motives were for getting the job. The recruiter was very nice and knew her job well. She actually worked her way up into that position.   View Answer
Negotiation Details
No real negotiation, but they relied heavily on how much sales experience/recruiting experience you have. You may be able to push for more if you're a rock star sales person.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ashford University in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through a recruiter advising me they had a career opportunity available. The first initial phone call was pretty standard information about the position, the environment and skills needed. The recruiter I spoke with then set up an actual phone interview (with the same recruiter) for 5 days after the initial conversation. He sent me links in an email as my homework I needed to have completed before the phone interview. The homework consisted of listening to call clips and answering questions and uploading my resume online. During the phone interview he asked me questions about previous work experience and gave me scenarios and asked me if I would feel comfortable handling them.
    After that he invited me for a face to face interview the next day, early in the morning. He told me I needed to complete both of the links in his email prior to the interview. The first link was an official application and the second was 4 references with at least 2 being from previous Managers. It was difficult to contact everyone and get them to fill out the information prior the that next morning.
    The face to face interview was in a conference room with one other person he asked questions and wrote them down on a piece of paper word for word. They were pretty typical questions. The last part of the interview was a role-play scenario, he told me three pieces of information about the person I was calling and asked me to carry a conversation with the caller. After that call, he gave me feedback and we role-played again.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ashford University in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application on line and about 2 wks later received an email from their Sr. Recruiter. Had a quick conversation about the position the next day, then scheduled for a phone interview the following day. I had to watch a video with 5 questions that needed to be answered within 3 minutes before my scheduled phone interview. This was very insightful about the role of an admissions counselor. The following day, there was a formal interview with a manager. Both the recruiter and Manager provided a fair assessment of the company and position. I did some research prior and was impressed with their honestly and dedication to the organization.

    Phone, Internet test, and face-to-face. They first do a phone interview, then if they like you, you have to pass a web-based role play test. Then in the face-to-face interview, they ask behavioral questions and then there is a role play exercise in which you want to use open-ended questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ashford University in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    All the reviews are spot on - yes, you initially receive a phone call from a recruiter, explaining the position, benefits, and rate of pay. Second phone call, a few days later, from the same recruiter, asking your thoughts about the video, which details "a day in the life of." Then, more questions, regarding the position, where some are situational. Then your recommended for an in-person interview that includes, a manager, and director. For some reason, only the manager interviewed me, probably because the director was busy, or called in sick that day. Whatever, not a big deal. The manager was friendly, but I felt over dressed in a suit. He was wearing jeans, and a polo shirt, untucked. Again, the manager asks what you think about the position, since your on the phone all day, everyday. Heavy dialing. Lastly, I inquired about a quota, and he said there isn't one, but this month is 4 (well, that means there IS one).
