    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Tempe, AZ).

    Interview

    This was a long time ago, but the interview process was typical. You start with an HR phone interview, then they ask you to come in person. The in person interview was with two managers that asked the typical questions.

    Operation Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University in April 2019.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in-person with the manager and two others on the team. All pretty standard questions except for the faith based questions. They led a prayer before the interview began, which made me pretty uncomfortable and then asked if I would be comfortable talking with students about my faith and if I would be able to uphold GCU standards while doing so. I know it's illegal to ask about faith in an interview, so they've come up with ways to get around it. Was a little confused why this came up because this position wouldn't be dealing directly with students very often. Ultimately, did not think it would be a great fit for me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview first and then had to go in for an in-person interview. The in person interview I had to interview with the woman I phone interviewed with and then I had a group/panel interview me. I thought I did well. Then I got an automated email that was very impersonal.

    Online Division Admissions Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, and was called by an HR representative within a couple of days. Did a phone screen and was invited to the campus for an interview. The day of the interview started good, I met with the HR person I did my phone screen with, she asked me a couple of questions and then told me two or three hiring managers would come in to do the interview. I sat in the interview room waiting for the "hiring mangers" to come in for 30 minutes! It was insane, and very unprofessional. I was told that they were in an "all managers" meeting. Excuse me but - why the hell would you schedule an interview and have a candidate come to campus at the one time of the day the managers were going to be busy? There ended up only being two hiring managers who ran my interview, the third never showed. I immediately knew within 30 second that I would not be happy here. Both managers seemed very stressed, unhappy, and looked like they didn't want to be sitting in the room with me. Every question that was asked and I answered they gave me empty stares and it was super uncomfortable, one manager also kept cutting me off. I couldn't not wait to leave that room, I had no questions for them because I knew I'd be able to leave quicker! *HR has still yet to call me to let me know if I even got the position, I am going with a no, but it's 2018, you can't send an email at least?
