    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Education Management Corporation (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    It was an hour and half long divided into three separate 30 minute interviews with different managers, supervisors, and fellow accountants. Their questions were about general accounting knowledge and technical experience, excel, general ledger, etc. Some of them did more talking than asking questions. It was a rather easy process for someone with adequete accounting knowledge and experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Education Management Corporation (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Very informal. Just talked with a manager about the role and responsibilities and the atmosphere. He was given questions to ask however he said he did not feel like asking them.
    We then were shown a video/slideshow about the company and schools and role played a phone conversation with a perspective student shortly after. This seemed abrupt as we had no training or experience. I believe they just wanted to see if we were capable of holding a conversation with someone. I was offered a position the next day after only one interview

    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Education Management Corporation (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is not an honest one. You think you're interviewing to work in an admissions department where you will spend your days interviewing with students and meeting new people day in and day out. However, this is a telemarketing job where you're expected to make 100 calls everyday to hassle students to come in for an interview. The majority of the students who apply can't even afford to take out students loans in the lump sum of $86,000 dollars for a bachelors degree.

    First step is to come to the campus and listen to a presentation about the company and position. From there you will meet with the President of the campus, along with the Senior Director and Director of Admissions. The local HR Rep is usually there too. You will answer one question in regards to sales. Please understand that EDMC and the Art Institutes are looking for CLOSERS. From there you will be invited back to a 2nd interview where you will do role plays of how you will get someone to go to school. After that an offer is usually made within 48 hours if you're selected.
