    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Merrillville, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Everest College (Merrillville, IN) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I went through a five-interview process. First it was a group interview with several other candidates (10-12 individuals). It was very informative. The head of the Admission department was very elaborate and detailed about the duties and responsibilities, benefits, and took plenty of time to answer any questions about the position. My second interview was with the same individual, and it was another group interview but it consisted of 6 individuals who were chosen as likely candidates to move on. It was more detailed than the first interview, where the Head of the department explained the ends & outs of the company, and team. During this 2nd interview, after we were explained the duties and responsibilities, we were given 2-3 minutes to give a presentation to the Head of the department, her assistant, and the rest of the candidates on why we feel we are right for the job. After a few days or so,I was called in for a 3rd interview. I was told I would interview personally with the Head of the department individually instead of in a group setting. Instead when I arrived there,I was told I would be meeting with a panel of 6 people who comprised as the Admissions team I would have been working with. Very personable but professional. I enjoyed the concept of engaging with your possible peers. This way they can get a better feel for how well I would fit into the group. This interview took about 35 minutes or so. After that went well,I waited over a week or so later, and I was notified via email, then by phone call that I had moved on to another interview. I was told to drive 45 minutes away to meet with regional department leader and a few hours later to meet with the Dean of the College for a final interview. Two interviews with the same day or hours apart. Both interviews were stellar but throughout the final interviews there was no talk about compensation, salary requirements, etc. Just more talk about the nature of the "business" and how well do I see myself as a fit. I was told I would hear about whether or not I would be offered a position within two days from my interview. Never heard back from them. I called all the individuals I interviewed with. I spoke with the Head of the department and she ensured me that she will have a decision within the week and that they are still interviewing other candidates. This repeats for another week until I finally get the picture. I spoke with the department head one more time and she told me that I didn't get the position. I was upset after going through such an extenuous interview process but only dissappointed that it was dragged for so long without a decision being made on my employment status. I may have been insulted if I recieved a rejection letter instead of a phone call, but either one would have been better than getting IGNORED. Left a bad taste in my mouth, after spending over a month building relationships with the staff and possible future co-workers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Everest College (Santa Ana, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Confusing. Management and HR continuously dropped the ball regarding my hiring. I began interviewing in April and started working there in Aug. I realized the problems I would face with mismanagement at that point, and made a grave mistake moving forward, accepting the position. Regional Director was rude and arrogant beginning in hiring process and straight through my employment.

    Enrollment Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Everest College (Atlanta, GA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Began with an hour long group interview that asked why we wanted the job, what was a recent major accomplisment, use one word to best describe me professionally, and similar questions. Then an individual interview that focused on working with others, time management, follow up skills, and a chance to ask my own questions.

    Interviewers were looking for self starting, independent problem solvers. I feel confident I would have landed the job, but I'm sure they saw hesitation in my face when I told them it was an hour+ drive, and I asked about possibly relocating to a more convenient location. Bad idea on my part.
