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.

    Multiple phone interviews with Talent Acquisition. One face to face interview with a hiring manager that lasted no more than 10 minutes. She was given two specific questions to ask me ahead of time so there was nothing to discuss or explain. Made me think her role is that of a puppet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    After applying to the University, they had a personality questionnaire, after I passed that, I received an email for a phone interview. After talking to the recruiter over the phone, with some basic questions and trying to gauge your phone personality (if you will), she stated that she would like to set up an in person interview. The in person interview consisted of 2 managers and a director, (middle management) and they engaged in a series of "What have you done in previous jobs" kind of questions. The focus was on experience and how you handled yourself in a given situation, not "what would you do." I did well on the interview (they are looking for talkers), and I was called back in about 3-4 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • What was a situation where you had a conflict with a coworker and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
