    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at College Pro.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy going but very drawn out. They call for a basic informational interview then call the next day to start to challenge you about your past experiences. After this interview they would do a skype interview and pretty much ask the questions that they asked over the phone.

    Anonymous Employee in Walla Walla, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at College Pro (Walla Walla, WA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    It started with a informational interview which was more geared towards selling the benefits of the position to me and how it would advance my future career goals. I was intrigued and scheduled for the first interview which was primarily conducted by the General Manager of the region. I did not have to speak with any other manager. The process involved a data pack which took me 2 hours to complete. The second interview was a more in depth, one on one experience. The interview was overall comfortable and the questions were searching for my motivation and commitment to this line of work.Finally I was given a call at a scheduled time and offered the job. I accepted it.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions regards past work experiences. For example, Tell me how you demonstrated leadership in your past employments?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If anything, I was able to negotiate the territory of my business. Overall it was a great personal experience and allowed me to really gain real world experience as a college student. The overall level of responsibility and training were my favorite aspects of the position. However, it is risky and students have lost money doing this job. But if you have a good General Manager and you are motivated to hit goals then you should be fine.
