Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2017.

Interview

I applied on their website and was scheduled for a phone interview the next day. After that I was scheduled for an in person interview two days later. I met with the Director of Admissions who was very professional and asked normal interview questions. After leaving the interview I was called about 30 minutes later to come in for the third and final interview which was scheduled for three days later. I met with the President of the department who really went into detail about the position itself and what they would be looking for if I were selected for the position. After meeting with him I talked to HR for about 15 minutes about the culture of the company. Everyone that I spoke with and met with were very professional and they have been great with communication as far as whats going on with my application. The day after my third interview the man that conducted my phone interview e-mailed me asking how the interview went, which I thought was very nice. I was told I would hear back either way within in a week. It has only been two days so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get an offer I would love to work for everyone that I spoke with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    First I took a personality test. If that goes well you will be asked in for an interview. I interviewed for about an hour with two managers in the area. I was called two-ish days later and asked to interview with the President of the company. It went very well, she was easy going and very nice. I was told they would contact me in about a week. It has been a little over two weeks now so I'm assuming I did not get the job. I will say that everyone I spoke with was kind, professional, and easy to speak with. I think they have great programs and should be proud of what they have built. I would have loved to work with the president of the company because she seemed to have a very similar background as me and I think I could have learned a lot from her.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Santa Ana, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position after seeing it posted on Indeed.com. Approximately 5 days later, I received a call from a recruiter who conducted a telephone interview with me. He then forwarded my information to the hiring manager of the particular location I was interviewing for. She called me a few hours later, did a short phone interview herself, then scheduled me for an in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview itself felt more like a discussion rather than an interview. The hiring manager talked about the culture of the place, what her expectations are for someone in this position, and what it would take to be successful in the position. She also asked me about my responsibilities at my current position and some situational questions.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Charleston, SC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Web based application followed by in person interview and decision making within 7 days; I had prepared questions to ask interviewer about things that they wanted in the person they would hire for this position, and I think that impressed slightly. Found some of the questions difficult to answer without knowing a little more about what they defined as "team work" and how they handled recruiting on weekends.

    Interview Questions

    • Big question was "How would you relate to someone with a background clearly different than yours and get them to want to come here as a student?"   2 Answers

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    First of all, the ADA position is pretty much an admissions rep. Also, they do a drug test so for anyone on drugs, just be aware. The interview was pretty basic. They were just asking why I want this position and what I can add. They said it is sales and they do check everyday on apps. They were asking about my experience with high school students as well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online through AiS careers page. Was called a week later to set a phone interview day and time with HR. Had HR phone interview a couple days later. Lasted about 30 minutes. Was asked basic "qualifying "questions. Was told at the end of the phone interview that she would like to set up an in person interview for the following week. Went in the next week and meet with the Director of Admissions and a lead ADA. Interview lasted about an hour and then they asked me to sit down with a recently hired ADA to chat about her experience and viewpoint on the position. That lasted about 30 minutes. Two weeks after my in person interview i was called by the Director and given a job and salary offer which i negotiated and after about a ten minute conversation , i accepted the position at the new negotiated salary. I started at AiS exactly 2 weeks later wuth one other person.

    Negotiation

    I negotiated the offered salary over the phone at the time of employment offer. There was an obvious am out of wiggle room the Director had to work with and salary negotiation seemed expected on the companies behalf.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call to come in for an in-person interview after about a week. The interview ended up being a presentation for everyone that was called back, which was about 6 of us. If you were still interested, after they gave you the overview on how "amazing" the company is and how most of your time spend will be on the phone making cold calls to get students to come to the school, you could stay for a in person 5 minute interview due to the others waiting. It was basically a meet and greet. It felt positive, but after a week passed I sent her an email with no response and another a week later without any response on the process. To me, even if I didn't get the consideration for another interview I felt the lack of respect of my time even after trying to get an update through email.
