    I applied online – interviewed at University of the Rockies (Denver, CO).

    It was quick and easy. Everybody was very friendly, engaging and open to questions and concerns. This was one of the easier interviews I have had. I had a phone interview first with a recruiter based out in San Diego and then went into an in person interview the next day with a few managers.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of the Rockies in September 2012.

    Interview

    You are interviewed by managers, they are mostly new to their leadership roles. You can tell they aren't experienced at interviewing, they just read questions from sheets they have in their hands.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary, they will of course have you discuss difficult service situations from previous work experiences, your strengths / weaknesses, etc. They should have another department handling the interviews. Once I was hired I realized I must have done ok in my interview because the manager who interviewed me said he and another manager were fighting for me for their individual admissions teams…. I have managed in other work situations but this was unprofessional to me, instead of making me feel excited about my new job offer, it made me question what is going on in this place?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiating, they said it had to do with the education you earned. I was given the maximum amount they said b/c I had earned a Master's degree.

    Initial intro phone call that last about 10 minutes. If they determine that you could be a good fit for the job, they will schedule you for another phone interview that is more in depth.

If you pass the third interview, and they like you, you will get a call back with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at University of the Rockies in January 2010.

    Interview

    Set up a phone interview, then the next day had a 1 on 1 interview and was made a contingent offer on passing the background check. I told them that I would wait until the background check cleared prior to officially starting. They also want to do a degree verification, which took about 2 weeks, but you do not need this to start your position. However, if your degree does not get verified or is found incorrect they will give you 5 days to fix it and if it is not resolved you are let go.

    Interview Questions

    • They did more of a behavioral style interview where they ask you questions like tell me about a time when you had a diffcult customer, how did you deal with it, and what actions did you take.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Take it or leave it mentality.
