    Market Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    My application was submitted at headquarters. I received a phone call as the initial interview. We then scheduled a 1:1 interview at the office. My initial feel of the office environment was that it was quiet and unfriendly. Once I was working there, the employees were all very nice. The interviews were all basic questions.
    I enjoyed my time there. I learned a lot of new marketing techniques, but it was time to move on.

    Cosmetology Educator/Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Empire Education Group in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was contacted a couple of days later by HR and a phone interview time was set up. The representative was nice and was able to do the interview at my convenience. At the end of the phone interview (lasted 20 minutes) I was told I would be contacted by either the director of the school or by HR again. The next day I was contacted by the director to come in for an interview the next week. When I arrived at the school, I was asked to fill out an application and then taken back to the director's office. The interview was pleasant. I was given a tour of the school and introduced other educators. I was given a technical interview. I was told to do any haircut I wanted on a mannequin while the Director and an Educator watched. I assume this was to see how I would teach.

    Director Interview

    Interview Details

    Hiring process makes you feel very important. Met with two executives prior to receiving an offer. After the interview process, a thorough background check is done and processed, and a caliper test given to test that you are a proper fit for the position that you are applying. Human Resources does a great job through this process.

    Interview Questions
    • They give several "what if?" scenarios that must be answered: how you would handle a disciplinary issue, educator/staff issue, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated a little bit more money than i was offered, and I still wasn't satisfied, but I was promised the potential for performance based annual bonuses, though these were also done away with- and as I knew I would... I performed and would have been elgible.
