    Academic Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Livermore, CA

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apollo Education Group (San Francisco, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I did not apply for a job, but rather submitted my resume as a contractor. I was contacted by a recruiter asking if I would be interested in a full time job.

    Interview Questions

    • Now that you know more about what we're trying to do, can you write up a short memo of how you would approach the job?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was made an offer over the phone and was asked to name my salary. Not knowing that there was a bonus system in place I did not ask for the bonus and was not offered it. Once hired, though I was brought into compliance with my co-workers benefits and was given the bonus. Now, with cut backs I'm not so sure it would go like that.
