Average Interview

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Peoria, AZ).

Interview

All I can say is joke! I came into this process with awesome qualifications. I went through all the 3 interviews, which included a phone interview, met with the talent agent, and sat in front of 4 managers. I felt I answered each question with precision, but it ended up being a waste of time. This university is looking for robotic minds, who will simply be happy sitting behind a desk, and not taking on people with character.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Process was fairly inane. They responded to my resume, and asked me to respond to their email to set a time for a phone interview. They called as scheduled. The interviewer was polite and friendly. She was thorough in her description and responsibilities of the position and asked several times if I was still interested after she finished her notes. They spent a great deal of time going over my resume, position by position

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Tempe, AZ).

    Interview

    I received an email to set up a time for a phone interview. After the phone interview, the next step was an in office interview. I first met with the talent specialist who set up the phone interview and she asked me several questions about why I wanted to work for them, etc. After that I was taken to a conference room and had another interview that was conducted by two managers. The managers had great personalities which helped to calm some of the nervousness most of us experience with an interview. They asked me about my work history on my resume. They also asked several S.T.A.R. Method questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very friendly. She took me to a room to meet the two military managers that were going to interview us but they were late. It was awkward and after a while the recruiter had to go find them.. twice.. before they came to meet us for our scheduled appointment. When we walked in they seemed quite friendly at first. One of the interviewers was very nice and more open but she kept looking to the other one for what to ask and how to react to my answers. The other one that was in there asked questions did not smile one time and she stared straight ahead at me, almost without blinking. She almost looked angry. It was clearly uncomfortable to myself and to the other manager in the room. At one point she asked me to review my resume and I went over the first job and looked up to see if she had questions or wanted me to continue. She smacked her copy of the resume and said "I said to go over your entire resume!". The way she said it was rude and it was as if she was talking to someone that was way beneath her. It was more of an interrogation interview from her. If she wasn't staring, she was writing, with very big writing. Not one time was there a level of comfort in the room and it was obvious that she intimidated the other manager in the room as well. It was one of the worst interviews I have had. She is a manager only interviewing, not an officer interrogating a criminal, yet that is what it felt like. There is no way she is going to really know a potential employee if interviewees are facing interviewers such as that. When GCU is doing interviews, they need to find someone that is better suited to doing that and actually getting a potential employee to really share what they have to offer instead of trying to "show them who's boss". Thank you.

    Interview

    Interviewers were unprepared. Didn't know how to interview me and took 5 mins during the beginning of the interview to go over the process. Although I was told there was multiple positions that were available, what they do not tell you is that you are ONLY interviewing for one slot per the supervisors that were assigned to interview you. So if they do not like you for their slot, you are not hired.

    Interview

    During the interview, two interviewers asked performance based questions using a method titled as STAR. These questions namely focused on your past experiences. During this time, the two gentlemen write down your answers on paper looking for key words. Overall, the interviewers are not interviewing but rather reporting. There is no personal dialogue.

    Interview Questions

    • The STAR method, in general, is lackluster and not focused toward actually discovering the true talents of the potential employee.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Interview felt like they were looking for a warm body, not a person.
