CPC Processor Interview

CPC Processor
Hoffman Estates, IL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Career Education in May 2009.

Interview Details – Recruiter called and said I have been selected for a group interview. Group interview consisted of 8 seekers and three managers. One manager was held up, so we waited while the other did small talk. Thought the time could have been used better to tell about the company or culture. Each manager took a turn asking a question around the table. If you were last asked, all the "answers" had been said. Seemed rushed and uncomfortable. This technique did not allow for any conversation, and don't feel like the managers got a chance to get to know you. The position was not presented well, managers harped on the negatives (Saturdays, heavy workload).

Interview Question – Give an example of a time when you messed up, how you told your boss and what you did to fix it.   View Answer

Admissions Representative Interview

Admissions Representative
Las Vegas, NV

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Career Education.

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.

Interview Question – It was awhile ago so I can't recall any. And to your questions below about a drug test or any other testing, I don't recall but I think that is part of the process now. Sorry!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Back than I was able to negotiate my pay rate but that has since gone away since all the cut backs over the past 3 to 4 years.

Student Finance - Financial Aid Advisor Interview

Student Finance - Financial Aid Advisor
Schaumburg, IL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Career Education in November 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty standard. I filled out the application that morning and a call back that afternoon. I had a telephone interview to initiate the process the same day. Then I scheduled the interview a few days later and was told they had to think it over. On my way to another interview, I received a phone call for a few follow up questions and was offered the position. I met with one of the Directors of Student Finance. She was very welcoming, yet stern but overall it was a great experience.

Interview Question – The most challenging question of course, " Why should we hire you?" Just answer honestly, voice your strengths, remain confident and one will be fine.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase.
