    Admissions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICDC College (Culver City, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via email and spoke with him the next week. He said he felt I would be a good after reviewing my resume on Careerbuilder. He asked my what my salary requirements were and he told me they were too high given the position. He then gave me another figure and asked if that would be acceptable and I agreed. I was set up with a phone interview with the manager which went well and then another recruiter contacted me and set me up with a face to face interview with the manager the next week. I met with him and then met with his supervisor the same day. I was then contacted by the second recruiter and set up with a face to face interview with the HR manager. I met with her and was asked my salary requirement and I have her the range the first recruiter told me. She then told me that what was so great about the company is that no position had a salary that was set in stone and that they could work with an individual on what is to be expected as far as compensation. The same day I also met with one of the Vice Presidents. During that interview I was again asked what my salary requirement was. I again gave her the same range that the first recruiter told me. She then asked me if my figure was negotiable and I said somewhat. She then put that figure on my application along with "somewhat."

    I had to give references that were checked by the second recruiter. After checking the references, a few days later the recruiter contacted me and told me they would like to offer me employment...at a salary of SIGNIFICANTLY LESS than what I had been told, a LOT less. I told him I had reservations about it and I felt with my YEARS of experience, along with my management experience and track record and cost of living in Southern California, there was no possible way for me to survive on the salary they were offering me. He said that this is what they are offering because I don't have experience in education to which I told him I have plenty of work experience in all types of industries and have been very successful in them all. He said he would speak with upper management and get back with me. The next day, he called and asked what would be the rock bottom compensation I would accept and then again told me he would call me back.

    On Friday, I sent him an email asking if there was any word from anyone since he told me he wanted me to start working that Monday. After the email the first recruiter called me and said that what was offered to me is all they are willing to give me as far as compensation and there was no negotiation. I told him I would have to think about it and then sent an email saying that I would not be taking the offer. I also told him I had been asked on several occasions what my salary requirements were and if they weren't even going to come close they should have told me and all this time wouldn't have been wasted. I forgot to mention the fact that HE was the one that ORIGINALLY that told me the amount that I said I could work with.

    I was very upset that I was told a figure by a recruiter (who is in the HR Dept), but then told something totally different in the end. It was a total bait and switch (and from the reviews that I've read this is exactly what they do to their students.

    I am glad NOT to be working for such an unscrupulous company because I'm more than sure there would have been more problems later on in employment.

    Student Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICDC College in October 2014.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted a few days later by HR for an initial screening - during that same call I was then offered a phone interview for the following week. After a phone interview with two managers, I was asked to come in for an in person interview. The in-person interview consisted of a tour of the campus and a meeting and interview with two additional managers. I was then called a few days later for a final in person interview with HR at the corporate location. I was then told that reference checks would take place that same week and I would know the decision by the end of the week.

    All interviews and interactions with staff were fairly pleasant. Knowing that I was overqualified and the pay was significantly low, I still continued with the process. After all the positive interviews and conversations, there was no offer, explanation or phone call just a one line e-mail rejection.

    Interview

    Contacted by one of the executives that had nothing to do with the area I was interviewing for.
    His questions were simple and he seemed like he wasn't interested in providing a quality candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ICDC College (Culver City, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Walked in, filled out an application, waited in the lobby. Met with the director of the financial aid dept. She conducted a very interesting interview, actually. She sat down, smiled, looked at my resume then back at me and asked "Tell me a little bit about yourself." That caught me off guard, lol. We hit it off pretty good, I tried to focus the conversation on my resume and education and not stray away from business but talked a little about my experience studying abroad. Then, she walked out and brought the HR rep to meet me. She asked the more typical interviewing questions. Then, the executive director of the financial aid dept came in and met me. Im assuming they really liked me since they offered me the job. Im excited, and ready to start my first post-grad full time job.

    The interview wasn't bad. I had my first interview over the phone, then two in person interviews. I got my offer the next morning. However, they wouldn't negotiate pay at all.

    They wouldn't negotiate pay... They wouldn't match my old pay. Even with my degree and experience.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ICDC College (Culver City, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Such a long time ago to quite remember. Interviewed with 3 individuals over a 2 visit process. Pretty much to the point. Only nerve racking thing about the process was having to wait in the lobby for a very very long time to meet with each individual. Each interviewer was much different from the other. There was one professional individual among the three I interviewed with. The other two were slightly unorthodoxe. I could barely make out what one was asking/saying because of the tone/speech of their voice. I figured that I would get asked more sales related questions about conversions rates and methods of describing/selling an intangible product, but most questions were about my interests and what type of work environment I prefer to work in.

    Negotiation

    They asked what I made before and how much do I think I'm worth now. They wanted to low ball me and hire me at a low rate, much lower then what I earned before. An offer was made and I turned it down. I couldn't just go upon their word of "possibly" getting a bump within 6 months. A week later I was called back and the gave me what the amount that I asked for.

    Online Financial Aid Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ICDC College.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call in about a week for a phone interview. On-site interview on the next week.

    The phone interview was fairly standard. The HR representative asked typical questions about availability and general interest about the job. Basically, it seemed like it was simply to verify that the application wasn't false and that there was actually a person behind it all.

    I met with two levels of management at the on-site interview. First was a getting to know you type of conversation, it was very casual. Second was strange because the person seemed busy and decided to just tell me about how life and the world is before rushing me out. After asking some questions about the position's duties and expectations I couldn't tell it was probably not the best day to be taken to that manager.

    Interview Questions

    • As previously stated the unexpected or most difficult part was dealing with the second manager. The person was fairly egotistical and a little neurotic about for-profit education and the students it recruits.   Answer Question
