    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Phoenix.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job and waited may 2-3 weeks before I was invited to take the assessment. The assessment consisted of three parts in which one took a long time. It consisted of placing words in a box until there are none there. After I took the assessment, I was told that I had passed it. I waited another 2-3 weeks before receiving an invite for a phone interview. Obviously I did horrible in my phone interview because I received an email 1 week later stating that I had not been chosen to move forward in the interviewing process. Also she only asked 4 behavioral questions during the phone interview. She stated that during the face-to-face interview that they ask different questions and you can not use the same answers since they record your responses.

    Enrollment Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and immediately received an assessment. After completing the assessment, it took a few days to receive an email from the Apollo Group about scheduling. It was hard to find a good time to interview because their times were all during the day, but we found one after two weeks. The final interview is typically a week later.

    The interview questions that will secure the job for you are all behavioral. I had to explain a challenging time, a time when things were better than expected, a time when you have to please a customer, and another that I can remember. I would google behavioral interview questions if you were unfamiliar.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a time when something you developed turned out better than expected. Where did you work, what was the project, and what was the outcome?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I tried to negotiate the salary because of my education and transferable skills but you can only negotiate if you have been in a same or similar role with the last year. This is my first position in higher education so I took a pay cut.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an email that said if i applied to this job then I would get an interview. So I applied and then was directed to a set of online tests. My score was never disclosed, the tests were not necessary difficult just time consuming. I was then scheduled for a phone interview, it lasted around 30 minutes. All the questions were the behavior based tell me a time when ... happened using the star format. I feel like the questions were pretty generic and I could have easily made things up to make myself look better but I was honest and used recent examples for my answers. A couple days later I received a rejection letter.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Overall, the process was fairly easy and took about 4 weeks in total. Just study all the behavioral questions you see posted here and just sell yourself! They like people who are self-motivated, hard-working, and dedicated to their work. Be prepared to provide only work-related examples for the interview behavioral questions. Also, feel free to ask questions throughout the whole process! My interviewers were very friendly and personable. They made my experience very comfortable and I was able to express myself easier.

    **About a week after the interview I received a contingent backup offer for the position. Pretty much means that I got the job I just have to wait until another open position is available...sucks but it's worth the wait. Pay and benefits are outstanding!

    No negotiation but the starting pay is great! Plus you get a raise each year. Not bad at all.
