    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview Details

    Simple process which involved me answering some basic questions. Nothing more than sitting at a desk and having ideal conversation. Didn't really cover any past experience or educations (which surprised me being a college).

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle a student who is verbally upset with a status involving financial aid?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I attempted to negotiate salary, however, it was made very clear to me that this was not up for discussion. I then tried to negotiate hours...and again this was made clear that no part-time employee was allowed under ANY circumstance to exceed 25 hours per week...

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview Details

    It is all fake - formality - you only get the job if you know someone there. They will call you for an interview and ask you one question and tell you thank you, we will let you know, or hire you on the spot. Fake interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no difficult questions. They have to beg people to work for them once you hear the salary   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was half of what I was currently making.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted by the Allen Park campus approximately two weeks after my application. I was first interviewed over the phone, and was then asked to come in for an interview with the campus president and a member of the academic staff. After this interview, I did not hear anything for a couple of weeks -- I called Baker to follow up on the interview and at that point I was offered a job.

    Professional Tutor - Learning Support Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview process would absolutely be different form campus to campus. Flexibility of work schedule (5-5hr days )and a genuine people person are absolutes necessities. Most important quality needed would be the ability to think on your feet, problem solve, and keep it together under pressure.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview Details

    I went in person to inquire about a position and had an interview set up within the week. The interview was short with a skills and intelligence test that included things like alphabetizing according to name and title. A background check was completed and a sexual harassment and work place violence seminar were completed online. Each of these took about 45 minutes with a certificate of completion forwarded to management and placed in my personnel file. The interview and hiring process were simple and pretty easy. No tough questions asked. The main focus was on skill, professionalism, and whether I was the right fit for the department I was being placed in.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no unexpected or difficult questions. The interviewer did more talking than I am accustomed to during an interview.   Answer Question

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    There are 3 interviews, the first is a screening interview, where you answer basic questions, such as "what interested you in this position?" and "tell me about yourself". The second interview was with the VP of Admissions and an Admissions exec from Flint. It was a bit intimidating- I was seated at the end of a very long conference table, with these two guys (one on my left, one on my right). The Admissions exec from Flint does most of the talking in this interview, but you are asked questions about your college career, why you chose your major, why you are interested in the job, and what you regret about your college career (ughh). I was told in my first interview, that I should wear a suit of some kind to the second interview, it is a very conservative and business-like environment.
