    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Post University in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview then came in to the office. I met with different people in the department. It was a very long interview and lasted about 3 hours. It was more of a conversation than asking direct interview questions. It was not very organized. HR didn't know I was being interviewed and were not prepared to hire me. I was offered the job on the spot.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterbury, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I went through a staffing agency, they placed me and I got an interview that week. Two hours after my interview they gave my staffing agency an offer who told me if I would like I could start in two weeks. Overall it was a very simple hiring process. Simpler if you go direct through Post's HR and not a staffing agency.

    • What skills do you have that will help you be successful?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but that is because I went through a staffing agency so the power was in their hands, not sure how direct recruits are treated in this regard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process for me was very laid back. I was contacted just a few days after submitting my application. I spoke with the HR rep for a few weeks via phone before I could make it to campus. Once I arrived, I interviewed with one of the Assistant Directors. We talked about hobbies, my career goals, and a little bit about the culture of school. My second interview was a bit more formal with some harder work-related questions. From the moment I walked in each time, I saw smiles on faces and everyone said hello. It seemed like a buzzing environment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer is competitive especially in this economy. Most people working in admissions are young and just starting a career, so the benefits and salary are often worth it for the experience.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screening followed by an interview in the offices of the Online Education Institute. The questions were guided toward past related experiences and how they related to the Admissions Counselor position.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview and then in person interview with HR and 2 managers. Not an overly welcoming environment when interviewing. Standard inside sales type questions were asked with a couple tough ones thrown in. I answered them thoroughly and with a lot of thought, but did not get an offer. They did also mention that the position requires at least 100 outbound phone calls per day. Sounded to me like more of a high pressure sales job than admissions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Direct and to the point, with one exception. They will tell you that they do not have sales goals - that is because by law, the educational industry is forbidden to define what they do as "sales" - HOWEVER, they do have an expectation as far as how many students you bring in.

    That aside, the interview was direct, polite, and personable, asking relevant questions about your experience and expectations.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I have been working for Post University for over a year now and I have never felt more at home! When I first applied they called me for an interview and then I was interviewed by an Assistant Director in Admissions. When you work for Post - You are joining a team! A family! They go above and beyond to make each employee feel comfortable and they train their employees very well! Have you ever wanted a career in which you wake up every morning excited to go to work? A place that is full of fun, loving and caring co-workers that become great friends? Post is that place!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Post University (Waterbury, CT) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted via email regarding unexpected opening - wanted to know my availability. I was. Both interviewers were the "management team" I would be working for. Lots of talk about we don't spoonfeed our kids but they need lots of special attention. They were both friendly enough and asked on point questions related to teaching style, integration within their system.

    Advice: Just be yourself

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation - it is presented as this is what we offered. Later in conversations with other adjuncts I learned someone with a masters was being paid same as I with a PhD.
