    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Art Institutes (HQ).

    Interview Details

    Sent in my application through their online site, received an email within 2 days to set up an interview for the next week. I came through a referral so they were very excited to meet me.

    When I first got in they required that I fill out a full paper application, even though all of the information they were requesting was already submitted electronically. This was my first red flag, why waste 20 minutes of my time - so that I was then late to my interview - to fill out a paper application when one is already available to the company? The interview was based on this paper application and you could tell the application and resume was glanced over for a few seconds at most and they conducted the interview accordingly. If you invite someone in for an interview you would think they would have reviewed your resume for at least a couple minutes to get a slight feel of the person.

    They were not interested in anything but sales experience, even with a thorough background in education. No commission, but it is 100% a sales job. They described it as "only" 4 hours of cold calling a day, with other administrative tasks the rest of the day. Interview was less than 30 minutes with a tour around the building afterwards. Building was small and it made me uneasy that they were convincing mostly low-income students to pay $100k+ to attend an arts school. They were definitely looking for people who were hungry for the job, and I took the interview as a courtesy to my referrer, not because I truly wanted the position. I did not get the position, and found out through a letter at the end of the week. The entire process seemed dated, I didn't realize company's still sent rejection letters.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Art Institutes (HQ).

    Interview Details

    I was called in for a group interview, and they were great about making this clear in the very beginning. However, when we all gathered to learn more about the position, the title was completely different. Yes, it would require some administrative tasks, but it was both confusing and frustrating to come in expecting the job description posted to be correct and instead to find a completely different job. It would have also been nice to know this before having to fill out an entire employment application.

    Interview Questions
    • I was only asked one question, as the interview was a brief time of one-on-one screening which included a short elevator pitch. "What three qualities would you use to describe you?"   Answer Question

    ADA- Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Art Institutes (HQ) in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    the interview process was very fast and my recruiter was very thorough. I applied for the position in San Francisco. he replied to my application request in less that four days, and scheduled a group information session. the session was about two hours and it was worth every minute. He let us know exactly what we were going to be getting into and left no stone unturned. He was very honest about why people fail in their position and what keeps people from remaining in the company longer that a year and a half. after the interview i was even more encouraged to pursue the position further and i a sent the recruiter an email requesting a formal interview. he replied promptly and the interview was scheduled for the following day. so far that is where i am at in the interview process.

    Career Services Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Art Institutes (HQ).

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted through email about two weeks or so after putting in the application. Set up a phone interview from there and we agreed to a 10am appointment. Interviewer called at 9:30am despite the confirmed appointment. Pretty basic phone interview and an in person interview was offered at the end of the call. In person interviewed followed about a week later. Interviewer spent the time more so playing the role of bad cop and trying to, "paint as realistic of a picture," as possible without even taking the other side and making it seem like a solid opportunity worth pursuing. Walked away from the interview more impressed with the city itself than the company. Interviewer proceeded to call back three times (as a follow up of sorts?) without even once leaving a message.
