    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Heald College.

    Interview Details

    The "interview" was terrible! I was placed in a room with at least 30 other people and had to sit and go over a 30 minute powerpoint presentation. The whole job is being a telemarketer and they said you have to be prepared to answer 500+ calls a day. All they care about is their numbers and don't really care about the well being of the student. I was expecting something more personal with students and helping them reach their goals. Not having them just be a number for my quota.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salinas, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Salinas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Heald College in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied to Admissions Advisor position online early in the week and received a call the following day regarding my interest in the position. The interview--or group interview--was held the Friday of that same week in the evening.
    As the job description focused on helping students find their career interests and getting them enrolled, I was very much interested. However, this description was misleading.

    During the beginning of the group interview, the interviewer was honest and straight forward about the position--it was a sales job. A sales job that would require making 100-200 calls daily to get a lead that may or may not end up with a potentially interested student.
     I actually appreciated his honesty very much. It gave me the opportunity to learn what the job entailed and how sales-focused it actually was.
    I did not stay for the group-interview portion; I knew I wasn't fit to be in sales. However, if you have sales experience and are good with people on the phone, this may be a job for you. Best of luck to you!

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview, then face to face with Manager, and then another phone interview with Regional Manager. The Face to Face was the most important if you get past that you are hired.

    Negotiation Details
    The range is 35K to 40K starting usually. I started at 38,500K. I think as long as you have some experience in sales, recruitment or outreach you should be able to start at 38K that way they have room to give you a pay raise. I ended at 44K but that's because I was promoted.

    Interview Details

    They asked me to come in as soon as possible. So I did, the next day.
    I was excited. When I got to the interview, they asked me some basic questions about myself and told me a lot about the company, it's mission, it's goal, its vision.
    The interview felt more like they were selling me the job instead of my applying. However, after i was hired, the interviewing process god harder.

    Now: You have an interview with the president of the school or the senior director of admissions, then you can have either one or two interviews with senior admission staff.
