    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview

    A total of 3 interviews are done. Screening, panel, and third interview. I waited a very long time in the lobby before being interviewed. I met a current advisor for the initial screening. Questions were based on a sales position. During the panel interview, I was asked me "sell a pen." Entire process was quite intimidating.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baker College (Waterford, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The first thing I had to do was take a personality test online. Within 24 hours of completing the test, I received a call from the CEO, who requested a face to face interview. Interviewed with the two owners (CEO and CFO). The questions surrounded my experiences working as an Adjunct Faculty, a corporate trainer and my knowledge of and use of MSOffice.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    They could not pay me what my skills were worth and there would have been a very difficult one hour commute to and from the location.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker College in March 2016.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview. This interview lasted about 15 minutes or so. I thought that this interview was going to be with the Director of housing, but it was with the Area Coordinator. The next interview was a Facetime/ Skype interview and, this interview was with both the Area Coordinator and with the Director of housing. This interview lasted about twenty-five minutes. During both interviews, the questions where about the experience that that I had that was relevant to the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker College in July 2015.

    Interview

    Application was made by mail following the employer's directions. The interview was conducted by phone by two representatives of the HR department. After small introductory remarks were made, the interviewers asked general questions. I was my impression that very few of the questions asked related to the position I was seeking. Rather, the questions were primarily screening questions. I did not feel like I had the opportunity to demonstrate how I would be an asset to the employer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about how I would handle working in an environment with a difficult coworker due to personality disagreements.   1 Answer

    Application

    Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview

    Simple process which involved me answering some basic questions. Nothing more than sitting at a desk and having ideal conversation. Didn't really cover any past experience or educations (which surprised me being a college).

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle a student who is verbally upset with a status involving financial aid?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I attempted to negotiate salary, however, it was made very clear to me that this was not up for discussion. I then tried to negotiate hours...and again this was made clear that no part-time employee was allowed under ANY circumstance to exceed 25 hours per week...

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker College.

    Interview

    It is all fake - formality - you only get the job if you know someone there. They will call you for an interview and ask you one question and tell you thank you, we will let you know, or hire you on the spot. Fake interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There are no difficult questions. They have to beg people to work for them once you hear the salary   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was half of what I was currently making.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker College (Allen Park, MI) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I sat down with the bookstore manager and the president of the college. They asked me about my past history with sales and customer service, about my strengths and weaknesses and how I would benefit their company. I was nervous but it was a fairly normal interview and I went to interview practices before hand with our career services department at Baker College and they helped tremendously. Being as prepared as one can be makes all of the difference and helps with confidence.
