    Academic Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walden University.

    Interview

    I had a very short phone interview, about 7 minutes. Never heard back after, therefore emailed them two weeks later to ask about my application status. They could be nice enough to at least email me back and tell me we do not want to continue hiring process with you. I had a phone interview a month ago, and they did not even answer my email. I think such ignoring is very rude.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walden University.

    Interview

    Don't respond to emails or calls in a timely manner. Very laid back. Ask situation questions. They will hire anyone if you interview well regardless of your background. All you have to say is you have experience building rapport and a team player.
