    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sullivan University.

    Interview Details

    There was really no interview process as the position was created and designed specifically for me to accept this leadership role in a newly designed position. The interview was really based on years of service to the University and proven track record for success in the position.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sullivan University.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview asked typical questions about history, why you would be a good fit, and sales experience. There were no real questions asked, most of the time was spent with the two managers discussing things they do not like about other departments. Very easy interview.

    Admissions Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sullivan University.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to return for a second interview after what seemed like a very promising first interview, both times with a panel of interviewers, and both times 4 different people. At the beginning of the second interview I was shown around and introduced to pretty much the entire department. I hung out with them for a while and just chatted casually about the work culture and the job. Looked promising. At the interview I was asked all the same questions as in the first interview. At the end I was told that I was 1 of 6 interviewees, and there were 6 open positions. To me this is an unofficial way of saying I got the job. They said they would call me by the end of the next week, and even after I called back the following week to see if the position was filled, I never heard back from them, not even to tell me I didn't get the job. Pretty unprofessional.

    Admissions Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sullivan University in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a preliminary phone interview, then an in-person interview on campus with the Director of Admissions, Academic Dean, and Campus Director. It was all pretty basic stuff - although after I completed the interview and accepted the job offer, I discovered that they had used much of the interview time to be misleading about what the actual job entailed.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly just a lot of "have you ever experienced..." and "how would you handle..." questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation phase - I literally just got a packet in the mail with a letter saying I'd been hired and what my salary would be. No phone call, email, anything. I had to call the campus myself to confirm that I did, in fact, receive it. The only thing I tried to negotiate was the starting date - I'd informed them during the interview that I would need at least two weeks notice to give to my then-current employer, but they only gave me one week before I was expected to start. They would not budge on that. Should have known then...

    Career Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sullivan University in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was brief. I had what I thought was a great interview. I was told the interviewer would be in touch within a week or two. Two weeks later I followed up and was told that he would get back with me in a week and a half. After multiple follow ups and no contact from them, I can only assume I did not get the job. Very unprofessional for a "career services" department.

    Admissions Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sullivan University in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was informal, no real discussion of expectations. There was gossip about other departments and how negative they were. I could hear employees complaining while waiting for the interview about students and other employees.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not really asked any questions. It was as if I was a counselor and the interviewer was venting to me about all the issues. There were people dressed professionally and some that looked like they could care less how they looked.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The initial offer was low and I was able to negotiate up just a little bit. After I was hired I found out that I was still way underpaid compared to the main staff.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sullivan University.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called for a phone screening. Upon successful completion of that, I was asked to complete a questionnaire/personality profile online. I found that very difficult to do, as some of the questions were hard to answer. Such as "have you ever thought negatively about someone else?". Obviously we all have at some point or another so I was left with answering truthfully and making myself look bad, or lying and risk them knowing Im lying. Anyway, I was called about a week after I completed the profile and asked to do an in person interview with the director of admissions and the corporate training manager. The following day I was offered the job.

    Fellow co-workers did negotiate their pay and made slightly more than I did.
