I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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
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 Question –
Run of the mill questions
Talk about a time you didn't along with your boss AND a co worker
Talk about a time you had a difficult customer
What is your worst quality/something you want to change about yourself?
I worked in a men clothing store so one interviewer asked me to sell him a suit

Interview Details – The hiring process went fairly quickly. I applied and got called in for a group interview, where there were about 15 people responding to interview questions together in the same room. We went around the circle and you got to hear everyone's response. Then I had a one-on-one interview with the admissions director, and an interview with the president of the campus, after which i received my offer.
Interview Question – "Why are you better than any of the other candidates for this position?" - very challenging when asked in a group setting! View Answer
Negotiation Details – There was some room for negotiation - I was asked to name my price range. I wish I had aimed slightly higher...my advice is just to research what they're willing to pay based on the location. One of my co-workers named a figure that was very low and she was upset later when she found out she could have been making $5,000-$8,000 more!

Interview Details – First interview I had was with the Director of Finance at the campus, no real phone interview but was invited for in-person right away. I did know someone at the campus already, so that might have been part of that. Second interview, same day, with the Campus President. Both were pretty easy and no difficult questions at all. Interview might be very different case-by-case depending on your education/experience. Heard interview process for Admissions is a lot tougher.
Interview Question – No real difficult questions, but be prepared to answer how you would deal with "difficult students" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Try to negotiate a higher salary - they really try to get you in with a LOW salary while the range might be a lot higher
