    Operations Support Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DeVry University (Irving, TX) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR person in Illinois who did an initial phone screening. I was moved onto the in-person interview with the Dean, but it ended up being online through WebEx. I felt the interview went well. They asked very customer-focused and student focused questions and how you relate it to your past work experiences. Do not expect any feedback or a customized letter if you make it further in the interview process. I was told I would personally hear from HR whether they were moving me along or not and I got a generic rejection letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DeVry University (Charlotte, NC) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for job online, then received an assessment to complete. A week later I received a call from an HR recruiter asking if I completed the assessment(I did a week prior) and to schedule an over the phone interview. The morning of the interview I received an email canceling the interview(we rescheduled). The over the phone interview went well and led to a in person interview with the Dean and another faculty member. Face to face interview went well, however; the majority of the questions did not pertain to the job position. For instance, I was asked to give a visual description of my closet?, I guess they wanted to get to know if I was an organized person. At the end of the interview I asked what they were looking for?, when would someone be updated on their status?, and when would the position start?, all I received back were responses such as "a special person to fill the position", "contact the HR rep he'll keep you updated". Two weeks pass I contact the HR rep and receive no response. A month after the interview I receive a generic rejection letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at DeVry University (Naperville, IL).

    Interview

    Applied on a Saturday and the following Monday I got a call to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview went really well and the person told me a person from the Naperville office will call me to set up an in person interview. The in person interview was with two managers both very nice. The questions they asked were trick questions and they asked the same questions just in different ways. Seemed like they liked me at the end. Got an email two days after saying I didn’t get the position.

    Admissions Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at DeVry University (Long Beach, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I went to a local career fair and spoke with a Devry representative. I expressed my desire to work in higher education. The representative stated that she would pass my resume on to several departments. Lo and behold, a few days later I received a call from a Devry recruiter trying to get me to enroll in their MBA program. Very deceptive.

    Student Support Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DeVry University (North Brunswick, NJ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    First I applied online. A day or so afterwards, a recruiter sent over an online assessment. It took about an hour. I eagerly filled it out. The next morning, the recruiter gave me a call, impressed that I had taken the assessment before he even called. We scheduled a phone screen for that following week. After the phone screen, he told me I would be going to the next level -- an in-person interview with the Student Central Manager. That interview occurred the following week.
    After meeting with the manager, I learned more about the role and felt it wasn't the right fit for me. I withdrew my candidacy after that interview.

    Student Support Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DeVry University in September 2017.

    Interview

    About two months after applying online, I received an email with an assessment which I completed the next day. It took me about 40 minutes to complete, it was a combined personality and IQ test. Immediately, the recruiter called me to set up a phone interview. The phone interview went well and at the end of the call I was invited for the in person interview with the manager the same week. The interviewing process was overall simple but the position was not a fit for me as I learned more about the role from the manager. Seemed more like a numbers game than actual student advising or support. The manager was also a bit condescending only half way answering my questions and snickering with the receptionist as I exited the office. The only reason I am not down-rating the interview is because the initial recruiter and his assistant were very professional. The following business day after the interview, I was sent an automated email that they would not move forward in the interviewing process and had selected another candidate. However, the position has yet to be filled. All is well, a week later I was offered a job at a well known university and began working immediately.
