    Financial Aid Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Killeen, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blackboard (Killeen, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    After you apply, you'll be asked to complete some assessments. I don't remember what all of them are, but for one of them, you have to do a typing assessment so they can see how many words per minute you can type. Then if you pass that, they'll call you and sort of do a phone interview. They'll ask you if you've ever applied for financial aid, if you plan to go to college, if you're in college, etc. They asked me if I knew the difference between a subsidized and an unsubsidized loan, and they asked me if I knew the difference between a dependent and an independent student. They're just assessing how much you currently know about financial aid. The face-to-face interview was pretty basic. I just filled out a bit of paperwork, and then when it was my turn to speak to the interviewer, she just asked a few questions about my employment history and assessed my multitasking skills by seeing if I could type and talk at the same time. Overall, the interview was pretty easy. They'll hire anyone so don't worry about messing up.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blackboard in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview process (6 stages!!!), but it's all remote which makes it manageable. Everyone involved was very professional & positive. Stage 1 was a chat with a HR team member. Stage 2 was a chat with the line manage. Stage 3 was a chat with the department manager. Stage 4 was a chat with the regional sales manager. Stage 5 was a role-play presentation (give a topic a week in advance to allow you to prepare). Stage 6 was a mock response to an RFP.

    Interview Questions

    • Most queries were around personality and professional competencies. Very few technical queries. Most of the process was in the shape of discussions (mostly informal) which I enjoyed.   Answer Question
