    I interviewed online - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I began my journey in June 2014. Each person I came in contact was very passionate about the position. I had 5 interviews and I enjoy each one. Each person had a great personality and genuinely wanted me abroad. Although the process was very long, it was worth it. I also got above my asking salary.

    Initial phone screening that took about 20 minutes over the phone, then I had to take an assessment of math and analytic questions, then interview with Director of Department in person, Campus Dean in person then Regional VP over the phone. The entire hiring process took well over a month and a half.

    Training Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges.

    Interview Details

    The first phone interview took about 20 minutes and was with a recruiter for Corinthian Colleges. I was asked for a 2nd interview about a day later. The 2nd phone interview was with the director and the manager. It was going well (as in I was answering the questions pretty easily) until I had mentioned that I truly cared that I would be properly training the staff who would be supporting the students (in other words, the customers). I went on to talk about how the students were important when I was interrupted by the manager with a bad attitude. She basically did not like my answer because the students/customers are NOT important to Corinthian College and it's about making money, etc. No kidding, but shouldn't a proper organization still show that they care about their customers? That's how you make money, after all. How someone in a management position doesn't get that is beyond me. I wasn't feeling the negative vibes from the 2 interviewers and I definitely feel with my experience and ability to thoroughly answer the questions this process could have gone further, however, I did not let it. I told them that I was NOT interested in hearing any more from them and challenged the interviewers about why CC has so many negative employee reviews and their accreditation has been questioned more than once. They really had nothing to say about it. No answer back, no defense for their company. These are upper managers, remember. So I'd say heed the warning of many before you and if you are getting that "bad gut feeling" during the interview, it's for a reason. I know people who have worked for for-profit universities and they describe it as "an uncomfortable work environment with low morale where you're trying to get people who can't afford an education to pay large amounts of money for a degree that will get them nowhere."

    Also, the company is a call center environment. Is that where you want to work?

    During interviewing process, 2 different people contacted me about the same appointment. It was obvious that the "right hand did not know what the left hand" was doing. The process took almost 2 months, as the people involved were at Corporate for a week while the interviews were going on.

    Admissions Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview really focused on Sales talents. I had to persuade the interviewer to purchase an item although I was interviewing for a admissions position. I understand follow up and reaching out to the prospect is vital; however it just appeared to be the main focal point and I believe academia should not be Sales. I wanted out of the Sales industry, not mask it with another job title.
