    Substitute Instructor Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at UEI in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a joke. I interviewed with the Associate Director of Education, and that was the most informal interview ever. I was then asked to come back for a second interview, which was a teaching presentation in front of two other instructors. I was never called for 3rd interview which was promised, and they have conducted a background investigation, yet have not called to make an offer or to tell me that I did not get the position. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.

    Financial Planning Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at UEI in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    UEI called a week before to schedule an interview with me for the Financial Planning position. Basically, the interviewer along with her associate asked me about 20 in-depth financial aid questions, really quizzing me on the details. Although I answered all of the questions correctly, I did find out at the end of the interview that they had been interviewing for several weeks to fill just ONE , yes ONE position. So, basically I knew at that point that my chances were slim because that opens the door for superficiality when you're quizzing that many applicants to fill 1 spot.

    At this point, we must all accept that in this economy the employer treats 1 job opening as a pageant of sorts..pageant of unemployed freaks if you will...trying to see who will suck up or beg for the job the most and choose 1 pathetic soul for the honorable PAPER pusher role. Don't worry, I'm not bitter...

    Based on what I've seen on this site, don't go if asked because you may just be wasting your time as it seems customary that this company overinterviews based on how few openings are available.

    Interview Questions
    • didnt really have any unexpected question, just be prepared to discuss anything financial aid related in depth and to actually bring in real-lie experiences of how you handled certain things, i.e. verification, c-codes, etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UEI in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interview experience along with the 100+ individuals who interviewed was absolutely horrible!!! Unfortunately UEI College preys on unemployed individuals desperate for work. Imagine being brutally interviewed by 4 people in front of 100+ candidates and told that you must “sell yourself”. This went on for 3 days!!! Stay Away!!

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was conducted by 4 UEI College employees. They had a group of 100+ candidates being interviewed in front of each other. That right there was the most insane interview process I've ever been through!!! All the questions were ridiculous!!!   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UEI in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was somewhat unorganized. I felt the interview was rushed and not well presented. While I didn’t see any red flags, there were a few warning signs about how the position was described in the job description and what it actually is. I interview on a Wednesday and the position “had to be filled by that Friday”.
    I feel sorry for the poor soul who takes the job thinking it’s one thing, but then turns out to be some totally different.

    Career Services Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UEI in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to a group interview. Open ended questions were involved as well as public speaking skills assessed. I was then called back to a second group interview that was $ paid$ and took two days. After discussing the culture, direction, and school philosophy I was ready and eager to begin working at the college. It was a lengthy process, a lot of competition, you basically had to sell yourself over and over again. Not bad if you enjoy sales, which I do. I got offered the position and accepted. All I can say is that the environment is pretty hostile because of high turnover and IT is a sales position. Numbers are all that matter. The employees that have been there for a while become very disencouraged and so do the grads. Because they consistely fire people, you cant build relationships with people that you will not see in the near future. The operation needs more organization and time to develop and sharpen skills.
