    During the interview, you are asked what you know about the company. It is the basics though, what do you want to do, what have you done and do you have examples. I interviewed with one person first and then two people the second time before meeting the man in charge.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DeVry Education Group (Naperville, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was first contacted via email from a woman in HR. I had to complete a couple assessments before we could schedule the phone interview, which was somewhat annoying. One assessment was a personality questionnaire, I believe it took about 30 minutes. The other was like a college math exam, I found both to be stressful, and I never learned what the results were (I must have done okay if I proceeded to a phone interview, then followed by an interview at the office in Naperville). The HR lady on the phone was friendly. The office interview was with two women (I can't remember their positions) it seemed like they played Good Cop Bad Cop which I didn't appreciate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at DeVry Education Group (Downers Grove, IL) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about my application from HR in about a week. They then scheduled a 30 minute phone interview which they asked the typical interview questions. After you pass that you are asked to take an iq type test online with math and problem solving questions and a personality assessment. I followed up with HR and the scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager with more typical interview questions like why do you want to work for DeVry. After the phone interview I then followed up again with HR to get an in person interview. This following up process took two weeks. Then I met with the hiring manager and a senior manager. They asked more typical questions and I was prepared. My advice would be to prepare yourself as much as possible with answers to obvious interview questions and bring resume, recommendation letters, and proof of past performance. Once I completed the interview I sent them both thank you emails and received an offer the next week.

    Specialist I Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DeVry Education Group (Naperville, IL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I had applied online and about one month later I recieved a phone call from the recruiter. It was about a 20 minute interivew asking about my previous jobs and why I wanted to be a specialist. I then was scheduled an in-person interview with the co-directors. I had to complete and hour online quiz as well as a personal info sheet prior to the interview. When I went to the interview I was briefly shown the office and then seated in a private office with the co-directors. They then began the interview by basically reading questions off a sheet of paper and writing down my answers. Very routine and they seemed very uninterested in what I had to say. The one co-director was yawning throughout and slouching through his chair. You could tell that they were just going through a line of interviews and did not care what I had to say. I also could find no way to contact them after the interview because nothing is listed on the sites or given from them.
