    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Career Education (Schaumburg, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was already an employee of the company trying to switch departments. I filled our online application and got a call within 1-2 days by one of the managers of the department to schedule the interview, asked a few questions about current job responsibilities and experience. When I got to the interview I was surprised how all the questions were mainly behavioral.

    Interview

    Long, with complex questions interview process. Management was not sure if they wanted to fill in the position or not. Overall experience - some personal opinions impact on the hiring decision. Although there were around five interviewers involved, some of them have more weight on decision making than others. Difficulty of the questions - average, more behavior than technical.

    CPC Processor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoffman Estates, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Career Education (Hoffman Estates, IL) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Recruiter called and said I have been selected for a group interview. Group interview consisted of 8 seekers and three managers. One manager was held up, so we waited while the other did small talk. Thought the time could have been used better to tell about the company or culture. Each manager took a turn asking a question around the table. If you were last asked, all the "answers" had been said. Seemed rushed and uncomfortable. This technique did not allow for any conversation, and don't feel like the managers got a chance to get to know you. The position was not presented well, managers harped on the negatives (Saturdays, heavy workload).

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of a time when you messed up, how you told your boss and what you did to fix it.   1 Answer
