    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chesapeake, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at DeVry University (Chesapeake, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewing with DeVry was drawn out and a waste of time. They led me on for months and then denied me with a generic email stating that they went with another candidate. After a great interview (in my opinion) they took forever to make any progress with their hiring, despite telling me that I was a top contender for the position. After several emails and calls back and forth, they finally gave me the bad news. I wish it didn't take three months for them to come to that decision. Very unprofessional. In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't get the job. Working for them must be a similar experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview questions. Where do you see yourself in five years? etc.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DeVry University.

    Interview

    VERY SMOOTH, INFORMAL. Interviewer was a very thorough, professional but very relaxed and approachable. Overall the place, the building, the atmosphere and facilities are top-notch. Only thing, it is not place for long term. No incentive to stick around. I guess they do not want to cultivate that kind of loyalty.
