    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Santa Ana, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Ana, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online, received initial phone screening by recruiter, then brought it for 1st round of interviews with three individuals (one-on-one) - including the hiring manager, then called back for 2nd interview with VP of the department. There was nothing out-of-the ordinary here; if you've interviewed for a BA position before, there are no surprises for CCi's interview process.

    Director of First Impression Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dearborn, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to by an employer who at the time was the Assistant Education Director and was well known with the company. The interview process involved with meeting with the Director of Admissions, then the Director of Finance who was the immediate supervisor for the position. The next step if to meet the President of the campus, but I did not have to do so. But I did meet him the day of interviewing. A tour is taken around the campus, which allows you to see how things are ran daily, see friendly faces, encouraged students, and the building itself since the company is in a suite building neighboring around other companies.

    Online Full Time Professor Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Corinthian Colleges in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
