    Academic Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DeVry Education Group.

    Interview Details

    First I was contacted via Email to schedule a phone interview. When she called to confirm the phone interview, she said she would be emailing assessments to be completed before the phone interview. I tried emailing her and she was out of office. She failed to email the assessments and made it seem like it was my fault they weren't available before the interview. She rescheduled the phone interview and finally sent the assessments. phone interview went fine and she seemed really friendly at the end. She said her supervisor would be contacting me to schedule an in person interview. She emailed two days later with an in person interview for 4 days later. Seemed to be moving fast!

    When I arrived at the interview, they didn't have me on the calendar. I ended up waiting 30 minutes to meet with two ladies. They asked situational questions wanting specific answers relating to my resume. They said i should hear in two weeks. Two weeks later a different person emailed to schedule 2nd in person interview. It was for three weeks later. two days later they called to reschedule for three weeks later. Went to the in person interview, she was friendly, but seemed to be uninterested. She was very happy to talk about the program, but wasn't interested in my responses. She just seemed like she knew she wasn't going to hire me for the position.

    Got a call from the original phone interview lady and she said they thought i would be a better fit for a different position. She sent another round of assessments. She told me specific things to say to questions they would ask. interview was scheduled for the next week. This round was much more intense. They asked about sales experience and how i would respond to rejection. They were not friendly and very cold. Never received a call back and its been over a month. The whole process was over 2 months.

    I would not suggest this company to anyone else. they are not trustworthy and very unprofessional.

    Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DeVry Education Group in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through the DeVry Education group website. A recruiter emailed me to take an assessment test. Completed the assessment and didn't hear back from the recruiter for over a month. Emailed the recruiter to see if she had any updates and she set me up for a phone interview. After phone interview I was arranged for a in person interview with two Managers. Interview lasted about 30 minutes. They were very unprofessional asking each other what they should ask me. The recruiter contacted me back and informed me that they really liked me but they went with an internal college.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was really fast as I was a referral. I had a phone interview and the HR person pretty much gets you ready for the interview. The interview was pretty much general questions-why Devry? Why do u think you will be a good fit? Etc. The interview lasted only 10 mins and I thought I was not going to get the job but got a call the same day and I was offered the position.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DeVry Education Group.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first, then in person. They contacted every one of my references and asked them thorough questions. After a drug test I got my official offer.
    The training phase was 8 weeks but really only had a few days of full content. They expected you to be work ready in only a few days.
    They did not fully prepare you to be cold calling. They make it seem like every "prospect" wants information but expect you to convert about 5% of them long term
