    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Everest College (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I applied for a job at the Greenspoint TX campus and received a call back one week later. I had an interview with the admissions manager. The next day I had a phone interview with another admissions manager. The following week I had an interview with the campus Dean and the regional VP. All interviews went well and I am expecting a job offer this week.

    All interviewers were personable and made me feel comfortable. The atmosphere was easygoing

    Tips:

     The job is heavy phone work (200+ calls/day) so if you don't have prior phone experience sell them on that fact that you can speak well/be persuasive/get students to come in for in person interviews over the phone.
    Be personable and energetic if they see that in the interview they will get a glimpse of how you will interact with prospective students.
    Always give specific examples to the questions they ask.
    There will be at least three interviews so make sure you come up with a list of different questions per interview. (I asked 3-4 different questions at each interview)

    I applied online. I interviewed at Everest College (Skokie, IL).

    Interview

    was called for an interview in skokie campus in april. went through group interview and then called back for individual interview. After that was emailed link to take assessment test. Then I waited, and waited. Finally, 3 weeks later I was called by a recruiter to come in for a group interview for the same position!!! When I said I already went through this, recruiter said I must already be in the system and she will contact me if they wish to continue. Eventuallly, I found out I didn't get it-but I had to email the recruiter to get an answer. They seem very unorganized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Everest College (Merrionette Park, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview, then a lengthy assessment was emailed to me. The next thing I new they were checking my background and past employment history with a fine tooth comb. I passed that, but then I heard nothing from them. They told me to be patient, but they haven't returned any of my phone calls or emails 2 weeks. Too rude for me! I don't want to work for a company like that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Everest College (Seattle, WA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The first step was a pretty basic phone interview which lasted about 10 minutes. I was asked general questions like why I thought I would be a good fit, what my availability was, etc. I was then asked to come on for a group interview, which took about one hour and consisted of a panel of four managers asking four candidates to answer questions regarding our work history as well as how we might handle situations in the admin position. About a week later I was called by the hiring manager and asked to come in for a one-on-one interview, where she asked a few more questions regarding how I might handle situations in the admin job. She then took me around the school and introduced me to the teachers, other admin reps, financial aid reps as "who you'll be working with" and "who will help train you". I thought I had this job in the bag after that interview, but I never got a call back. I tried calling and e-mailing for an update but was never contacted. The place seemed nice and I really liked everyone I met, but I have to say that it is really tacky and disrespectful to not even give someone a "sorry we went another way" e-mail, especially after three interviews.
