    High School Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Everest College in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted the same day for an interview. The person I interviewed with was amazing, really easy to talk to and was very clear on the job duties etc. Was asked to come in a week later to the campus for a final interview. Stayed at the campus for a couple hours shadowing another admissions rep and was then told that I had the job. I was asked to fill out all necessary on boarding paperwork including tax forms. I was told that I would start in a week and to wait for a call to confirm what time I needed to show up on my first day. I waited a few days and no call. Finally the Friday before I was to start, I was told that because the company is going downhill with all of the bad publicity they have been receiving and that they are in the process of being sold, my position was eliminated and that I no longer had the job. I was also informed that the regional VP that had hired me had actually been fired that same day.

    Needless to say it was a COMPLETE waste of time. I have never in my professional life seen such incompetence and unprofessional behavior as I did with Everest. If this is the way they treat employes/potential employees, it isn't a far stretch to see that they do the same to their students. In the end, I am extremely happy that the position did not work out.

    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Everest College.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job at the Greenspoint TX campus and received a call back one week later. I had an interview with the admissions manager. The next day I had a phone interview with another admissions manager. The following week I had an interview with the campus Dean and the regional VP. All interviews went well and I am expecting a job offer this week.

    All interviewers were personable and made me feel comfortable. The atmosphere was easygoing

    Tips:

     The job is heavy phone work (200+ calls/day) so if you don't have prior phone experience sell them on that fact that you can speak well/be persuasive/get students to come in for in person interviews over the phone.
    Be personable and energetic if they see that in the interview they will get a glimpse of how you will interact with prospective students.
    Always give specific examples to the questions they ask.
    There will be at least three interviews so make sure you come up with a list of different questions per interview. (I asked 3-4 different questions at each interview)

    Interview Questions
    • Run of the mill questions
      Talk about a time you didn't along with your boss AND a co worker

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Everest College in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I just had a second phone interview today. It was an hour-long interview via a conference call with two of the online faculty who teach in the subject discipline for which I was interviewed to teach. They were very pleasant, and it was a good conversation. We shared a lot of strategies and teaching ideas back and forth. I came out of the interview feeling fairly confident.
