I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at University of Phoenix in April 2009.
Interview Details – I sought out University of Phoenix at a Career Fair. I was directed to a Temp Agency that they use for hiring. I contacted the temp agency and without any review of my resume I was invited to the group interview. I thought this was strange but grateful to make a first impression. I had a 1-2min speech about myself prepared which got me the interview with 2 supervisors at Univerisity of Phoenix. In the mean time, I had to meet with the temp agency multiple times to get registered with them since I would have to work through them for the first 3 months. I felt this aspect of the hiring and training process was unprofessional and demeaning. The interview with the supervisors went well-questions ranged from up front to situational, nothing out of the norm. I never again heard back from the University of Phoenix, but had all correspondence through the temp agency, which again I did not agree with. After the interview, I was chosen for a back ground check which basically meant I would be offered the position. I was offered the position about 2 weeks later over the phone by the temp agency and was told to start in 2 weeks at the main campus.
