    I have been working at University of the Rockies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Low pressure, but find that you're on your own. I have experience and know what I'm doing, so it's nice to have a lot of freedom with minimum hassles.

    Cons

    The university is owned by Bridgepoint Education, which is a very aggressive company. When they meddle with university affairs, it's bad news. Now that the sister school - Ashford University - is no longer the problem child with accreditation issues, it seems we're getting more focus from big brother.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at University of the Rockies in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    You are interviewed by managers, they are mostly new to their leadership roles. You can tell they aren't experienced at interviewing, they just read questions from sheets they have in their hands.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary, they will of course have you discuss difficult service situations from previous work experiences, your strengths / weaknesses, etc.
      They should have another department handling the interviews. Once I was hired I realized I must have done ok in my interview because the manager who interviewed me said he and another manager were fighting for me for their individual admissions teams…. I have managed in other work situations but this was unprofessional to me, instead of making me feel excited about my new job offer, it made me question what is going on in this place?

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating, they said it had to do with the education you earned. I was given the maximum amount they said b/c I had earned a Master's degree.
