    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Education Management Corporation.


    EDMC has a group interview process, usually an evening and morning format, and are very friendly. When I interviewed, they were looking for people to fill 3 different time slots and we could pick the one we wanted, which is great as I'm not a morning person and I start at 9am. The person who interviewed us was our manager. They let you know what your starting pay will be $40k for one year, and if you stay 4 years in the same position you'll be earning 57k. They tend to ask only 3 or 4 questions before sending you to their manager to talk with you. They are looking for people who are curious, and ask great questions. They are also looking for people who are coachable and want to learn.

    Interview Questions

    • none. Make sure you have questions to ask them, especially what they would like to see from you in the first 90 days.   Answer Question


    There isn't any negotiation, almost everyone starts at 40k, except for those with prior admissions experience with another school, where they make a little more.
