    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I filled out the application online in sept 2014 and passed the assessment. It took a while for me to be contacted (3wks) for the interview phase. Once I was contact I had 1 phone interview, then I was moved on to the face to face interview. I passed the face to face interview and I was notified with an acceptance letter 2 days after the face to face and also to start the background check. My background check only took 3 days to be clear. Then I was given my start date. Overall the whole process took 4 and a half weeks from start to finish.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were behavioral based questions. The interview should be like telling a story, what did you do, how did you handle it, what was the result, and the outcome.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation but they pay very well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of Phoenix.

    Interview

    Submitted an online application and was then sent an online interview with about seven questions. After returning the online interview by the requested deadline I was contacted by one of the managers to schedule an in-person interview with a panel. There were eight managers on the panel and each took turns asking questions then marking comments on a sheet in front of them. I received an offer about two days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral-style questions (i.e. tell me about a time when...)   Answer Question

    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    You have to meet minimum education requirements, there has to be a need for your area, then go through a 20 hour ( I think that is what it was) unpaid training session.

    Interview Questions

    • The training session it was over several weeks one night a week. But well worth having that level of introduction to their teaching method and the school.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I was recruited to fill a new role that wasn't officially in the system, so materials and online testing were actually not applicable to this position. The entire IT/online component of the application process was a bit of a disaster. I continued to get links saying I had not completed some online testing even though I had, and the salary email and the rest of the information sent to me did not match what I had been told by the hiring manager. Also, for a relatively low-paying job, asking the applicant to create a PowerPoint presentation under a limited time schedule that could be used to market the school almost seemed like free marketing consulting particularly as the job I was applying for did not require such a presentation necessarily. The hiring manager also made a statement to me in the call confirming their offer that was professionally a bit insulting I declined the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Being asked to create a PowerPoint presentation in a very short time and then being asked to present it in a conference room without having started the job or being given information to use was a bit extreme.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    There was too much confusion in the system, the pay confirmation was not what was agreed upon, and the hiring manager made a statement in the confirmation call that was professionally insulting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix (Bakersfield, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online a week letter I received an email to take three assessments. After passing the assessments there is a phone interview, after successfully passing the phone interview you will move on to the face-to-face interview. The face to face interview is a panel consisting of two people. It is a behavioral type of interview most questions begin with "Describe a time when you....". They are looking for a specific answer and if you do not give them the answer they are looking for they WILL write you off. My tips for you: Know the position and what it entails and be able to explain exactly what the position is and how potential students are contacted. Also, study all of the questions on here and have an answer that relates to what they are looking for. The director told me they are seeking a hard-working, self-starter.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you used time management and what steps did you use. Describe a time you used logic and good judgement.   Answer Question
