    Enrollment Advisor Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview is somewhat informal in regards to your answers. The recruiter is really gauging your phone demeanor. The 1 on 1 interview is very formal and structured. The questions are standard situational analysis format. They are looking for very specific examples. Cite the problem and what you did to resolve it and then the outcome.

    All though I was not offered the position, based on the interview I would not have accepted an offer.

    Enrollment Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The woman read the questions from a sheet of paper and wrote down all my responses. She spent more time writing than actually looking at me. She was professional but without any personality. She could have been a terminator.

    I stumbled on some of the questions, as I was trying to figure out what she was writing and was distracted by her behavior.

    She wanted lots of detail. "Tell me about a time when you disagreed with your boss. How did you resolve it?"

    I had studied questions and thought I was prepared but I apparently did not give her what she wanted.

    It was the worst!

    IT Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process for applying for the job. Found the listing for the job online and sent them a resume. Next step was a phone interview. After that I went in for an interview in person. The interview was with three people and was pretty standard except for the questions from one of the interviewers. Upon reflecting on it afterwords, I think he was trying to gauge my problem solving abilities. The first odd question was how I could get my resume on one page without changing the font size. Well I have always thought that the best resume was one page, but I can't seem to make mine fit anymore. After talking about adding columns etc, his idea was to use the back of the page. To me that is not solving the problem, but just saving a piece of paper. It is still technically two pages, but just one sheet of paper. Anyway the next one was even better. He said, "Simple question, how many pay phones are in New York?". No mention at all about how would you find out this information or anything, just how many. Keep in mind this position was for a $10/hr intern. I was so taken aback I simply said I don't know. I think he was looking for me to tell him how I would go about finding out this information, but to me that is a really stupid way to test problem solving. Needless to say I didn't get the job.......thank goodness.

    Negotiation Details
    The hiring range was $38,000-$43,000 if I recall. I was offered $38,000 and I countered with $42,000 based on my previous sales experience, the interviewer went to get it approved with her supervisor and came back and offered me the job within 15 minutes. I am not sure if all interviewees are offered the job at the 1:1 interview, but I did ask for the job, as I feel that you should ALWAYS do if you do in fact want the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    They were launching a site for their subsidiary, Ashford University, in Denver, CO. When I came to the facility for my interview I had step over cables and construction when I arrived. There was no signage so it took a while to find the office. When I did find the office I had to walk down hallways to find the hiring managers.
