    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan (Alpharetta, GA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter in early December 2012 for a phone interview and didn't hear back from them until mid-January for a personal interview with two Senior Accountants. The interview was quite casual, where the interviewers asked a series of behavioral questions and then questions based on what was on my resume. The interview lasted about an hour then I received a call from them on my way home to schedule an interview with the department's VP for the following week. The questions asked by the VP were mostly behavioral and also included questions regarding concerns I had about my ability to complete the tasks that will be required. I was told towards the end of the interview that they will make a decision the following week however I didn't hear back from them within the time frame mentioned and saw a few days later that the position was re-posted on the company's website. They called me with an offer about two weeks after my last interview.

    Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mission, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan (Mission, KS) in April 2008.

    Interview

    The "Center Manager" is the person who will do your interview. He was the person who called me about a week or so before. I think the standards are low because the pay is low, but they still have to have someone there who will be there alone, so the person has to be at least reliable. He ask me simple questions, and asked me a few things about my resume.

    Negotiation

    He told me everyone who takes this position starts at $7.00USD/ hour, and told me I would never get a raise. This turned out to be wrong as the "Center Director" gave me a $1 raise after six months.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in La Crosse, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan (La Crosse, WI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a team of people, first the manager, then a group of 2 or 3 guys who followed up with their own set of questions. After talking with them I was handed a very difficult written test - I was later told that I had a decent set of answers, in spite of incorrectly answering 40% of the questions. The questions were a bit text book, but after I was done I got to talk to the same 2-3 guys. I enjoyed that team interview phase, because there wasn't much of a lull at any point.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a question regarding memory collection in C, looking for a very specific answer.   1 Answer

    I probably did not get as much as I would have liked, but I was in a situation where I was ready to move on.

    Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kaplan in June 2009.

    Interview

    There was a telephone pre-interview and then a meeting with an HR representative. Then they had me meet with the managers of the department the job was in. They gave a realistic view of the job duties including the enrollment goals and call metrics expected. The interview process was very thorough. However, the possible commission turned out to be exaggerated. What they called an average turns out to be a very small minority.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how I would handle someone who requested information but said they didn't have time to talk to an advisor.   Answer Question
