Executive Director Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Empire Education Group in January 2011.

Interview Details – I was initially hired as a Career Planning Specialist ( Admissions Representative). A recruiter called me and then shortly thereafter I spoke with an H.R. Representative. Afterwards they scheduled and interview with the Executive Director of the school as well as the Regional Director and H.R. Representative. Was pretty simple and seemed very well organized and challenging interview questions.

Market Research Coordinator Interview

Market Research Coordinator

Interviewed at Empire Education Group

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.

Interview Question – What do you consider to be your biggest weakness.   Answer Question

Cosmetology Educator/Instructor Interview

Cosmetology Educator/Instructor
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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

Director

Interviewed at Empire Education Group

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 Question – 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.
