    Chairman--Business Section, Kansas City, MO Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Apollo Education Group (Kansas City, MO) in June 2013.

    Interview

    As a result of my posting on LinkedIn, I was contacted by a recruiter who was interested in determining my interest. We had a very pleasant exchange, although an inordinately large part of the interview focused on whether or not I could be content with the salary. The VERY LOW salary of $70K obviously had been a source of difficulty among other candidates. I was told that the salary could increase based on taking on additional teaching assignments, but even the additional teaching assignments only paid $1200 per course. Given the many requirements of the position (i.e., an earned doctorate, years of professional experience, as well as teaching experience), I'm surprised they are able to find ANY candidates for the position. And those who join them must do so for the experience so that they can leverage that experience in getting a better paying job.

    I first had a in person interview with a director and another BA which really went well - they explained the projects they were working on, asked me to go through my background and then allowed for me to ask questions.

    Academic Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Livermore, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Apollo Education Group (Livermore, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I had to take an assessment test, which mainly consisted of questions about how I felt about certain tasks. There were also questions about I would handle situations that might arise on the job and choose what I felt was the "most correct" response. After that, I had a phone interview that pretty much revealed the job for what it really is: a customer service position. I was not asked one question about academics or education in any way at all. I was asked how I had dealt with angry customers in the past - I don't have customer service experience, but I do have a lot of experience in education, including higher education, so I guess I wasn't equipped to answer the questions they had for me. I really was expecting the scenario questions to be about academics or working with students since the title of the position implies a lot of work with students. Don't expect a conversational style, as this is just a phone screen. There was a lot of silence while the person typed out my responses, and there was no room for follow-up questions or responses. You will not be given the opportunity to show any kind of personality or to ask any questions you might have about the position. A written record of the phone screen will be passed along to a hiring manager who will then decide if you get to move forward. It was an awkward and disappointing experience, to say the least. I have had phone interviews before, and there's usually a back and forth. This was strictly business.
