Help Desk Specialist Interview

Help Desk Specialist
University Center, MI

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ellucian in April 2012.

Interview Details – I found the posting online and I sent my resume in. I also emailed someone that I knew from the office I was applying at and gave them a heads up. An HR rep for the corporate office called me for an initial screening. I was then invited to interview in the office for a face-to-face interview.

Interview Question – If you were driving down the road and you saw an ox in the ditch, what would you do?   Answer Question

Software Development Summer Internship Interview

Software Development Summer Internship

I applied online - interviewed at Ellucian in January 2014.

Interview Details – Got an email from a recruiter telling me I needed to complete an online preliminary test (to quickly weed out some people I suppose). It included questions that resembled SAT questions almost, like how many times did this letter appear in the text?

After that, I was scheduled to interview with a developer, and it was basic behavioral questions.

Interview Question – On the online test, there were a few questions that involved taking an image and rotating/flipping it to match another position   Answer Question

Technology Director Interview

Technology Director

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ellucian.

Interview Details – Slow, but expected.

Interview Question – Can you configure a network switch?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – First for anyone out there...DO NOT SIGN THE NON_COMPETE FORM! If things do not work out, you are stuck from working in any IT related job in the higher education sector for one year! If you are a programmer, you cannot get an offer to be a Director at another college..anywhere, for one full year.

Internal Sales Interview

Internal Sales

Interviewed at Ellucian

Interview Details – I was emailed by a recruiter a few days after I submitted my resume via the website. I was asked when I would be available to speak to her. I emailed back and then heard nothing. No one called or emailed me. I sent another email to follow up and still heard nothing. I also called the recruiter and left a message. Nothing. I think it was a pretty disorganized process.
