    Admissions Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Tampa, FL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Santa Ana, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very professional and helpful in the beginning. She wanted to make sure that I would like to work at Corinthian Colleges. She informed me on the greatness of company culture. I was actually enthusiastic about the job and the company because the recruiter was sharing the information that i thought was vital.

    Intervier in person came. I was dreading it because its a 4 person interview but one on one. first time i ever had an interview where I have to explain what i do and answer questions over and over again to 4 people. It was ok for the first two people and then it became tiring that I have to repeat myself over and over again. The only upside is I got to meet the perspective of my colleagues that have been working there for a while and a new team members.

    Then, after the long interview session with each person. I never got an email back on status of my job application. I was really looking to working with a reputable company, but now I changed my mind. They don't have a sense of follow through and common courtesy to tell me the outcome of the interview. It is as if I didn't exist, I exerted effort to meet with everyone, at least tell me If I got the job or not. Wish me luck at least.

    Now, the recruiter is not responding at all to my emails regarding following up on the status of my application.

    So would I reconsider working at this institution? I would rather not... they don't seem to know about common courtesy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Tampa, FL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I completed the application, recieved an assesment, passed it and was refered for my first interview, passed it and was scheduled for my second interview with the Program Director. Received an email for my final interview and here is where things started to get strange. The same day, a few minutes before the interview, I received and email from the recruiter postponing it because the Dean had technical problems and could not log in to skype. It was postponed for the following week. The day came and I waited for about half an hour after the appointment time and no one called. I sent an email to the recruiter and he said that the Dean had forgotten. It was supose to be a skype interview but his system did not work properly so he ended up calling me on the phone. He asked me about my practice , where was I , that he like my home town and all of a sudden said that I did not have the necesarry experience for a full time position. I mentioned that I have been teaching for over 10 yrs in a classroom, hybrid courses and online courses. He said he could not recommend me. He mentioned he would refer me for an adjunct position but I am still waiting for him or anyone else to contact me regarding the job. I felt very, very disappointed. ( they did a background check and I had sent all the paper work needed for the position) Received my results and everything was perfect. Still do not know what happened.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Corinthian Colleges in October 2013.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from the Admissions Director asking me to call her when I had time to speak to her about the position, I then returned her call and was not able to reach her that next morning, then we played phone tag, so I guess it took about 2 days before we actually spoke. She then went on to ask me about my background and what I was looking for in a job, we spoke about my past experiences, then she requested that I come in for a face to face interview the following week. I arrived on time, she called me in right away and I met with her and one other person from admissions dept, they mainly asked about my collections background and sales and how would handle certain situations that arose while handling difficult customers.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was what would I do if a student was told by a girlfriend or boyfriend not to attend school, because they felt that the person pursuing their career would leave them after graduating?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Thornton, CO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was standard. Recruiter called, set up interview, showed up 20 mins early. Seemed disorganized .

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were standard call center behavioral interview questions. Be careful not to be more experienced than the person interviewing you. It was apparent that its interview was going nowhere once it was ascertained that I had better and broader experience than the interviewer.   Answer Question
