Admissions Counselor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Sacramento, CA) in August 2017.

Interview

I was originally referred by the position by a GCU employee. HR Talent Acquisition reached out within a week asking to set up a phone interview. The interview was pretty basic - see questions below - then she asked me to fill out a writing sample. This consisted of three scenario based prompts you might encounter as a counselor. Once I sent that back a secondary interview was set up with the regional manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was called for a preliminary interview and I had to call back several times in order to get back in touch with the person who called me. When I did, she asked me a few questions which I will indicate in the questions column and then told me that I would have an in-person interview but they had to decide if I would fly to Phoenix or if they would come and interview me in my location. I waited a few days, hadn't heard anything and called back. She made a point to say that she "can't remember all the people she talks to in a day" and that "it was out of her hands". It was very unprofessional and rude. She said the hiring department had my resume and that I should reapply to be considered.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked why I want to work for GCU, why I felt like I would be a great Admissions Representative, and the usual.   1 Answer
