    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Council On International Educational Exchange (Portland, ME).

    Interview

    This was a fairly quick process until they had to make their decisions. I receives a call asking for a phone interview two days after I sent iny resume and had the phone interview during that same week. A week later I was asked to come in for an in person interview and met with five people for individual interviews over about 4 hours. I was told I would hear from them in the next 2 weeks but after I had heard fromy references that they were called it was about another 2 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Council On International Educational Exchange.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted for a phone interview, which went great. Then, I had a skype interview that went fine. I was told to wait since they had a busy time of the year coming up, but also told not to freak out. After a month of no response, I emailed and they said they had decided to interview other candidates- no one ever bothered to tell me I was no longer in the running. When I (very politely) asked if I could be told why I was no longer being considered, there was never any response. A few weeks later I get another email saying I'm no longer in the running. Great, thanks.

    Coordinator, Events & Travel Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, ME
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Council On International Educational Exchange (Portland, ME) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone screening by an outside company (I believe). The questions asked were pretty standard. I was then invited in for a face-to-face interview. I met with my direct supervisor, my supervisor's supervisor, and managers in other departments I would be working with. Finally, I met with the HR representative to discuss benefits, etc. I appreciated the fact that they I was able to meet with all of these people in one visit as I had to travel out of state for the interview. For the most part people were very nice, professional, and interested in learning about my background and explaining the work they do. The HR representative was especially helpful. When we discovered that the salary range available would not work for me, she continued to speak with me and give me recommendations for other companies or jobs that might suit what I was looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given several situational questions. Due to the international nature of the company, several questions related to how I would react to deal with problems that occur with students abroad, and juggling the needs of parents/educators/government officials/business partners when a problem arises.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary offered did not line up with my expectations. Some job requirements (travel, etc) also did not line up with my requirements.
