    Student Information Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Ana, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Santa Ana, CA).

    Interview

    It was a great experience. They scheduled a group of us at the same time, took us up to a conference room, and then called us in one by one for a one-on-one interview with the call center supervisors. There were two supervisors interviewing one candidate at a time. They asked standard questions from a long packet and jot down notes as you answered. They asked standard questions like "tell me about yourself" and uncommon questions like "what is your definition of professionalism". Also prepare for situational questions like describe a time where you had a conflict with a coworker, how did you handle the situation. Also, prepare your answers in the STAR format. That impresses them if you even know what that is. It's a 45min-1hr interview. If you are interviewed last, prepare to wait for a couple of hours before you get interviewed. Be patient. They got like 3-4 sets of supervisors to interview but gotta wait for your turn cause these supervisors are busy so that's why they schedule in groups. They have group training dates

    Training Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    The first phone interview took about 20 minutes and was with a recruiter for Corinthian Colleges. I was asked for a 2nd interview about a day later. The 2nd phone interview was with the director and the manager. It was going well (as in I was answering the questions pretty easily) until I had mentioned that I truly cared that I would be properly training the staff who would be supporting the students (in other words, the customers). I went on to talk about how the students were important when I was interrupted by the manager with a bad attitude. She basically did not like my answer because the students/customers are NOT important to Corinthian College and it's about making money, etc. No kidding, but shouldn't a proper organization still show that they care about their customers? That's how you make money, after all. How someone in a management position doesn't get that is beyond me. I wasn't feeling the negative vibes from the 2 interviewers and I definitely feel with my experience and ability to thoroughly answer the questions this process could have gone further, however, I did not let it. I told them that I was NOT interested in hearing any more from them and challenged the interviewers about why CC has so many negative employee reviews and their accreditation has been questioned more than once. They really had nothing to say about it. No answer back, no defense for their company. These are upper managers, remember. So I'd say heed the warning of many before you and if you are getting that "bad gut feeling" during the interview, it's for a reason. I know people who have worked for for-profit universities and they describe it as "an uncomfortable work environment with low morale where you're trying to get people who can't afford an education to pay large amounts of money for a degree that will get them nowhere."

    Also, the company is a call center environment. Is that where you want to work?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Corinthian Colleges (Dearborn, MI).

    Interview

    I was referred to by an employer who at the time was the Assistant Education Director and was well known with the company. The interview process involved with meeting with the Director of Admissions, then the Director of Finance who was the immediate supervisor for the position. The next step if to meet the President of the campus, but I did not have to do so. But I did meet him the day of interviewing. A tour is taken around the campus, which allows you to see how things are ran daily, see friendly faces, encouraged students, and the building itself since the company is in a suite building neighboring around other companies.
