    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Carrington College (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy process, starting with talent acquisition, then finally meeting the marketing team. There was a series of phone calls/interviews and two half-day long in-person interviews. They were more interested in me being a cultural fit than my skills, which I found interesting. I didn't get asked a lot about my resume or my experience.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carrington College (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Brief telephone interview just confirming your resume and educational background. Then followed up with a formal telephone interview about three days later. Then when you are "screened" you speak to the Dean, which was very informal. If he'/she likes you, you must complete a background check packet and go for a drug screen. When that comes back passing, you are scheduled for a mock teaching session in front of a Program Director and 2 other random people from the school.

    Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Albuquerque, NM
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carrington College (Albuquerque, NM) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The manager had no prior supervisory experience. We had a nice conversation but the manager completely misrepresented the quality of the students enrolled. Many turned out to be emotionally unstable and the manager and school did not care whether the instructors were physically safe and able to be productive in their teaching and grading.

    Director of Financial Aid Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carrington College in June 2014.

    Interview

    Carrington Stockton was an impressive place to interview. I was immediately given the impression that they cared for their students and staff. The Campus President had answers for my questions which demonstrated effective leadership. The phone interview which preceded the on site interview was not as intimidating as I thought it would be. Everyone I spoke with, from the appointment scheduler to the interviewers, were professional and pleasant. I was pleased with the clear approach to the process. Every interaction ended with an explanation of the next step. It is a long process, but they are very professional and upfront about it.

    Career Services Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I started off with a phone interview which went great. The recruiter was very nice and made the process comfortable. Then I had the in person interview. The director was intense and told me that she has been looking for the "perfect" candidate for 7 months. 7 months???? That should have tipped me off that this was obviously not going to happen. If you are looking for someone for that long, the candidates aren't the problem. YOU ARE. I thought it went well overall but apparently I wasn't the "perfect" person she was looking for. I then emailed the recruiter asking about an update. She has blatantly ignored my emails. I should have known that the process would be unprofessional since this isn't a real university. Especially since the "campus" is a converted grocery store. Students and applicants beware!
