    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kaplan University.

    Interview

    At least 3 interviews are conducted. The hiring process is so behind at the corporate level it can take months to hire an entry level position. When candidates inquire about statuses it is difficult for management to answer honestly since the decision is held at a corporate level.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan University.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with Corporate HR person which was followed by both a phone interview and an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Lastly, I was brought in to speak with the regional VPs. Most were pretty basic and simple common interview questions. The interviews were very laid back and conversational at all stages of the process. Very hesitant to answer questions I asked about biggest internal challenges or frustrations.

    Admissions Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaplan University (Orlando, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First is a phone screen interview via recruiter typically internal, then a face to face with 1 or 2 managers. It was more of a situational interview, very straight forward. Both managers I interviewed with had little eye contact and took notes almost the entire time. Overall it can feel slightly intimidating with the interview style but if you're prepared it's not bad.
