Admissions Representative Interview

Admissions Representative
Tempe, AZ

I interviewed at Education Management Corporation in May 2011.

Interview Details – Met with Admissions Manager. Asked me questions from a sheet. Was hard to read and did not express any interest in actually performing the interview. The only part he seemed interested in was when I explained my rank at my previous job. The process didn't take long at all.

Interview Question – Most questions were very textbook. Toughest one was about solving an issue in the former job.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating, they only have one salary they offer without negotiation.
