    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in June 2013.

    Interview

    They were prompt, friendly and thorough. There was an initial conversation followed by two follow up phone calls. The initial interview lasted about 15 minutes while the second interview lasted about 30 and the final interview lasted about the same. I was interviewing from out of town so everything was done over the phone and they were very accommodating.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgepoint Education (San Diego, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Beware there is role playing in this interview as if you're in he phones. They want upbeat and bubbly personalities! But don't be fake. When you role play, you will do it more than once, each time they expect you to take constructive criticism and apply it in the next one. Show improvement and your personality and I promise you'll have the job. Don't look at this place as another paycheck because you won't get far and you will be overwhelmed!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bridgepoint Education in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview to be scheduled the following day. The interview was scripted and there was no flexibility with scheduling. They wanted the phone screen to be the next day, and an in-person interview to be the following week. I said I was traveling but could do a skype. They could not accommodate a skype interview. How can an online education company not accommodate a skype interview for a technology related position? Seems fishy to me. From the other reviews on here seems like I dodged a bullet.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic and scripted as it was not done by the hiring manager. Questions about working with people, using specific technology products, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Annoying multiple interviews for a job that's just a churn and burn sales cycle. First was a phone screen with an internal recruiter. That was followed up by two more phone interviews with the hiring manager and their lead. Final interview was face-to-face w/manager.

    • Previous sales or education experience.   1 Answer
