    IRC Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Career Education in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was actually hired through a temp agency, I had to interview with them before going to the company. Once I got my interview with CEC the manager asked behavioral questions. I had to do a fake call, since it is a call center position. That required reading the script that has to be said during each call. Over all the process was not bad, but that also depends on which manager you interview with, so I heard.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.
