    I worked at Apollo Education Group full-time (More than 10 years)


    I grew up in this company. I started in an entry level position and was able to move around and develop new skills. I worked on a great team who I considered family. I had flexibility. I was able to telecommute and had accumulated a lot of time off.


    Unfortunately, with the regulatory and political scrutiny, the company has been struggling for years. I also think the company has lost its vision. A lot of new management who seem to be throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what will stick. I hope they just get back to basics and their roots.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving people into management who do not have good management skills. Just because you are a good employee, does not mean you'd make a good manager. And a director with no reports is a director of none. Fancy titles mean nothing.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Apollo Education Group (Orlando, FL).


    In general, positions are posted on the company website Apollo Education Group or its subsidiary University of Phoenix. Nonetheless, by now it is common practice to find announcements on mostly every job dashboard. Candidates are screened using the popular process; resume, phone call, telephone panel interview. If selected within the top 2-3 then you receive an invite for a face-to-face interview. Not to be surprised that the hiring manager/director may fly to your location for the in-person meeting. Interview questions will cover the basics: communication, project management, technical and soft skills. However, they will dive into situational and behavioral questioning. This is followed by a background check which can take up to two weeks.
