    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Career Education (Chicago, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Round table interview with four interviewers and eight interviewees. It was a bit intimidating because you were always afraid that the person right before you would "take" the response that you've been wanting to say. It was quite challenging to come up with a response on the fly if that did occur; unfortunately that happened to me on several questions.

    CPC Processor Interview

    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).
