Admissions Representative Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

Interview Details

Applied online. Received a call about 5 days later with a brief phone interview with basic questions such as: What interested you about this position? What was your start and end salary of your last job? What would your minimum required salary would be? Etc. Was then asked to come in for an interview the next day. That interview consisted of about 20 situational questions such as: "Describe a time you had to deal with a disgruntled customer/what did you do to solve the problem." Most questions were "Describe a time when". Interviewer (and supervisor to this position) was looking out the window half the time while both asking questions and listening to answers- not engaged or welcoming. I asked follow up questions that seemed to be unexpected and a little unwelcome such as, "What have people in this position gone on to do- is there a healthy internal promotion plan or did they leave to go work elsewhere." Answer: left to work elsewhere and retired. Not a good sign. Asked what a day's work looked like. Answer: 90% phone work. Was told they weren't technically "cold calling", but later was informed that they do. At least two nights a week required until 9pm and every other Saturday (holidays included). Was shown the office and it is a call center with tiny half-cubicles with 12 others in small space all wearing headphones making repeat phone calls. Was told by employee who gave me a tour that, other than himself, people don't stick around very long in that position.

Interview Questions
  • How would you balance strict required quotas/deadlines while still providing quality customer service. (Don't think its a good sign that they are already letting you know that will be an issue.)   View Answer
Reasons for Declining

Was scheduled to come back in for a follow up interview with the director but decided to cancel after seeing how the first interview revealed that the job description was a little misleading.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    Based on different Sales and HR related questions given by the Director of Recruitment and the Director of the campus. The interviews were more based on how you carried your self in an admissions environment then, what experience you had. An example is the director of recruitment asked how I would sale a student on our school, and I said the value of education is ever giving, the only debt that you can see that adds personal value to you as an individual.

    I applied online – interviewed at ITT Technical Institute in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Time from submitting an application to receiving an interview was brief. Interview lasted roughly an hour and a half. "Standard" interview situation. Questions mostly based on specific situations, actions, times when, etc. Disinterest and reluctance on part of interviewer to respond to / respond fully to questions I posed as a candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't a most difficult question, but it was unexpected that there would be so many (pages of them).   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ITT Technical Institute.

    Interview Details

    standard application: applied online, scheduled 1st interview with Director of Recruitment, then 2nd interview with campus Director, and should you be hired - a ton of hr paperwork. At the time, I was given a call right before the new year in 2006 rolling into 2007. The director of recruitment ask if I was still available and scheduled an interview date and time. I flew in from the San Francisco immediately. I have to say that I was informed regarding my general duties. A few days into training, I realized that I was in a sales environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Why I was considering moving to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay Area? The director at the time was very curious as to why I was willing to take a pay cut from my current job and relocate to Washington State.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, face-to-face, back ground check, meeting with director of college, hired.
    The phone interview is not bad, they just ask you the basic questions.
    The face-to-face are more situation type questions.
    The face-to-face with director is more situation type questions.

    **Make sure that you ask questions about the campus and such!

    Interview Details

    Full of misleading information. They give you one job description and you'll end up doing something totally different. Its a complete sham. Don't let them trick you. You'll work every weekend, many nights, and holidays doing thankless work that in next to impossible to meet their expectations. If you have a life, real ambition, or a conscience don't do it.

    Basically, don't have anything bad to say about this company. Great experience and the people are awesome too. I recommend the job to anyone new in the industry. The training is really great also. You'll have a great time and get best of the best industry training.

    Interview Questions
    • To move up in the industry, it's nearly impossible. There's a lot of overhead and the pay is going to be less than competitive to do what you want to do. Everything is extremely monitored, you'll feel like a caged animal working in those cubicles too.   Answer Question
