Difficult Interview

Academic Coordinator Interview

Academic Coordinator
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walden University in September 2009.

Interview Details – Initial communication with Laureate (parent company) hiring staff was positive. They were very informative and helpful. Then proceeded to interview with college academic leadership and a number of faculty members. All were collegial and positive. Interview questions were challenging - be prepared to come up with experiences from your background to illustrate points. Then final interview with college associate dean was very pleasant!

Interview Question – The most difficult question had to do with assessment, and this does not mean grading. Assessment as a function of fulfilling college mission and goals and achieving positive learning outcomes for students.   Answer Question

Enrollment Advisor Interview

Enrollment Advisor
Baltimore, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Walden University in December 2008.

Interview Details – There was a brief telephone interview. I called Walden and managed to get through to Human Resources through an employee slip up. I submitted my resume online but through conversation I realized it had never been reviewed. I managed to get an interview...the day after Christmas.

Interview Question – I was very prepared for the interview and expected it to be difficult but it wasn't. The interviewers were very lax and I don't remember a challenging question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I never negotiated the salary as I was thrilled with the base. It was $6 an hour more than was I was currently making.

Academic Advisor Interview

Academic Advisor

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walden University.

Interview Details – I applied for the job through the website early in the year, it was about 2 months before I got a call for an interview. The interview process was painless. The hiring manager interviewed me in person, and a secondary manager interviewed me over the phone. It lasted about an hour and in less than two weeks I was offered the position.

Interview Question – Every question seemed pretty standard and there wasn't anything difficult or unexpected, but it could be that I prepared well. Mainly wanted to know what my desire was to work in higher education, what drew my interest for this particular position and that I would be comfortable speaking with student's over the phone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was called an offered the position and even though the base starting pay was extremely good, I negotiated for more and got it. Never be afraid to ask for what you are worth.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walden University in March 2010.

Interview Details – I submitted my application according to the directions on the HR portal but the materials were never received. I followed up to confirm receipt and, when I was informed they hadn't made it through the system, I sent it directly to the hiring manager. I applied, interviewed within the week, and had an offer less than a week later.

Interview Question – What are your experiences with online/distance education?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wish I'd negotiated for a higher salary but I was able to negotiate a later start date to accommodate a large project I was finalizing at my previous company.
