    Interview process was pretty detailed. The process was half a day. I met with the area sales director and the sales manager. Several applicants that were there for the interview. Many hours spent during the interview process and I was about to walk out during a video portion of it. I ended up staying and finished it. I wound up actually taking a position there.

    Met with department manager through an interview set up through a temp agency. Interview was held in an empty conference room and lasted about 15 minutes. I was later called by the temp agency and told I had gotten the job. When I was hired on full-time, I submitted an internal application on the recommendation of my manager. I was approved to become a full-time employee (no additional interview needed), and went to the corporate headquarters for a one-on-one PowerPoint meeting about company policies.

    Interview Details

    I went in for a first interview and found out it was to be a group interview which was new for me. Turned out to be fine and went well but it took months for a call back for a second interview which was one on one. I was hired the following week.
    This whole process was fine I have nothing negative to say about it.

    Workforce Management Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Career Education.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with an HR specialist, which was very positive. She told me they would be in contact with me, and I didn't hear anything for weeks. I finally got a call back to set up an interview with the department supervisor. We had a phone interview, which included a detailed description of the position, my experience, and many of the typical behavioral questions. It went well, and I had an on-site interview with the visiting Director in April. Again, we talked about experience and a few behavioral questions, but mostly chatted about the expectations and duties of the position. I had felt it went well, but about two weeks later I got a denial letter.

    About a month later, I got a phone call from the recruiter, and they had decided to offer me the position. I was excited, but confused. During my training, my supervisor had told me that originally, they had lost my application/resume, which is why it took so long from my initial recruiter interview to actual interview. Then, the director had decided to offer the job to someone else. Before he started, he rubbed my supervisor the wrong way, and she let him go and hired me.

    I am certain that this was a once-in-a-lifetime type of experience, as no one else I have talked to about it has experienced anything like it.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate, as I was a little naive and wasn't aware that was something you could do. I know others hired into my department that did and were successful. Never hesitate to ask for what you think you are worth. The compensation is good, and most companies can do between 5-8% over the original offer.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downers Grove, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downers Grove, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Career Education.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted in the actual office setting that you would work. Typically the Director of a team would meet you face to face at the receptionist's desk and take you to their office and complete the interview one on one or with another member of the workforce.

    The initial hiring phase was completed through a staffing company. The staffing company worked diligently to ensure you were interviewed, that's their role.

    Interview Questions
    • My interviewer ended up being my first Director, so it was a nice experience to be interviewed by the same person that I would end up working under. A lot of people did not have the same experience, however, I believe the company has a basic rubric for questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were open, but I was more than satisfied with just getting hired!
