Nursing Instructor Interview

Nursing Instructor
Virginia Beach, VA

I applied online - interviewed at South University in May 2012.

Interview Details – 1:1 interview with the Director of the School of Nursing was uncomfortable because she was so all business, no personality. I took the job because I wanted to teach. I received information about the job that DID NOT come to fruition such as salary, expectations, no orientation process.

Negotiation Details – They did not compensate my annual salary when I received my Master's degree. This is the cheapest and phoniest place I have ever worked.

Admissions Representative Interview

Admissions Representative
Phoenix, AZ

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at South University in April 2009.

Interview Details – Open house format. Group presentation and collection of resumes. The called names of people that they wanted to talk with further. WE were then taken to a room with a phone bank and had to role play an inbound call. then we waited to see if we were called again. If you were called again, an individual interview with a hiring manager followed.

Interview Question – Why do you think you can do this? It seemed odd to ask that after I had cleared the telephone role play.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered, I countered, they accepted my counter.

Admissions Representative Interview

Admissions Representative
Chandler, AZ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at South University in November 2012.

Interview Details – Applied for EDMC about an Admissions position. I received a phone call soon after and spoke with the recruiter for a position with South University. I soon received an email with a survey that I had to complete. I completed the survey and then phoned the recruiter back. He called me later and set up an interview with an Admissions manager. He also sent an email with more application steps. This all happened on the same day.

I went to the interview the next day with my completed application and had a brief interview that took all of 20 minutes from walking in to leaving the interview. I then went home and wrote and mailed a thank you letter for the manager. I was then scheduled for a role play interview on the phone with another manager that had to be rescheduled. It was rescheduled with the same manager that interviewed me. The call was short and I was done within 15 minutes. The next day I was contacted by the recruiter with an offer for the position.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult, I have worked in Higher Education for over five years. If you have done student enrollment it is pretty standard questions. The part they were most interested in was overcoming objections from potential students and students.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I took the offer, there was no negotiation on salary. Benefits seem on par with other online universities, pay offered is very fair. So far I am more impressed with South University compared to the last university I just left.
