    Enrollment Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HotChalk in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called and did a fairly quick phone interview by a recruiter. Then I was invited to a panel interview, after the panel interview I was called in for an interview with the Director of Admissions. I was told the CEO typically met with each new hire, but the company was growing too fast and they changed the process.

    Interview Questions
    • It was pretty standard and there were no difficult questions that stood out.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was little negotiating due to the fact Phoenix is a flooded market for Enrollment Specialist. I did see some people get rejected over a 1500 difference after I was hired.
