    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.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Career Education (Schaumburg, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I completed a phone interview with the staffing agency over FaceTime. When I came for the in-person interview at CEC, I met with one of the managers. He was amazing and kind. He asked a couple of questions to get a sense of my experiences and how I answered STAR based questions. Then I had the chance to ask him questions. Let me tell you, every single person I met was dedicated to helping the students. It is something they really took pride in and they have a great, supportive culture that I could experience even just being there for 1.5 hours. I was offered to sit in with an Admissions lead who was very talented at her job and gave me some good tips. I know some people said on here that it is like a sales job, but after talking with her, it just depends on the person and how they look at their position. It is not inherent in the position. I got a call the next day with the offer.

    I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to apply. My experience was very positive. The only reason I declined is because working weekends is not possible for me in the long run and all departments work at least one weekend day. If you don't mind that, you get to help people pursue education, expand their employment options, and achieve what they did not think they could before. Honestly, a great place.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Career Education (Schaumburg, IL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was a list of simulated situation questions. It was a two person interview with manager and a senior team member. After each question by the manager the team member was asked if they had questions and they never did. At the end a comment was made by the team member and that was it. There was also a computer test that required basic knowledge where you had to find mistakes. All-in-all it was a fairly straight forward interview, not difficult at all. There was a subsequent second interview with a different manager and the head of the department. Those questions were about how you would fit in with the team.
