    Financial Aid Officer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Education Management Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The process from start to finish took over two weeks. I had a phone screening to start, and then had an interview face to face. From there I had two additional interviews. Everyone I spoke with commented on how impressed they were with my background and assured me I would be a good fit for the position. A week after my last phone interview, I followed up as I noticed the job posting was back up and I hadn't heard anything. I later received a standard email rejection that wasn't even addressed to anyone. It was very frustrating to have so much of my time wasted being led on by these leaders who made me feel very secure with the position, and then not even receive a final answer after four interviews. Incredibly unprofessional. And to be brushed off to another person to send a vague rejection email that they couldn't even bother to type my name into was very dehumanizing. Hate having to ask for rejections.

    Interview Questions

    • First screening was a review of your resume, skills and past experience. Second interview was just to get to know you. Third interview was role playing and last interview was similar to the second.   Answer Question
