    Interview

    First a call from the recruiter, then an in-person interview with hiring manager. The biggest concern is that the recruiter and hiring manager told me two very different forms of compensation. I was told $19.23 an hour by the recruiter and then told $40,000 per year by the hiring manager. At 40 hours $19 is accurate but the hours are more like 50+ according to the hiring manager.

    Reasons for Declining

    This is a telemarketing position. They tell you on the phone it's $19 an hour but it's not hourly, and is a 50+ hour job for $40,000 per year. You're basically sharing a cubicle with someone and calling people all day. The interview process could have been alot better on their end.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at South University.

    Interview

    Very brief, I answered basic questions about my experience, and I asked several questions about their processes and technologies. Everything was very antiquated there were paper applications and a paper filing system. There was no lead policy and people could go into each others databases with no notice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at South University.

    Interview

    Phone screening, scheduled in-person interview, lengthy in-person interview with regional management personnel, scheduled follow-up interview with the President of the local campus. The in-person interview with the regional management personnel was lengthy, the majority of the interview felt like someone trying to sell me on the idea that a for-profit college was good/acceptable. The interviewer went to great lengths to explain the pending litigation and pending settlements of the parent corporation that owns/runs South.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Have you researched whether or not we are a for-profit or not-for-profit institute?
      2. Are you aware of the pending litigation or settlements in process against our parent organization?
      3. Does the for-profit status of the organization bother you?
      4. How would you feel about the position being more of a sales role in contrast to an "admissions counselor" type role, I.E. selling our "product" which is the education...
