Assistant Director of Admission Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2012.

Interview

Very basic interview... nothing too specific... seems like they will hire most people who can speak well, and aren't on drugs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy and quick process, this should have been a red flag but I needed a change fast so I went with it. I wish I would have been able to meet the management team beforehand as I would have declined the offer or asked for much more money.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked to role play speaking with students and convincing them to enroll in a program.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    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

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Seattle, WA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    There is a group interview and if they deem you worthy they follow up with an individual interview. After that if they are still interested they will schedule you for another interview. In my case I was told they were running my background and reference checks (which took three weeks). I was under the impression I was going to be hired, all of my references were great. Then at the last minute they called to say they were going a different direction. My advice would be don't slow down on your job search to wait for this company! Also from everything I've gathered, employee moral especially for ADA's was very low. My best advise would be to steer clear all together.

    • Asked about a former supervisor who you liked the management style of, and one that you didn't.   1 Answer

    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    1st = Group Interview. Very flashy, but very vague
    2nd= Met with Director of Admissions. Again, very flashy... and more of the focus on on her and her life story. Very weird.
    3rd= Met with the President of the Campus. Again, just weird. Non-job related questions and more of a life story/talking to fill quiet air. I found myself fishing for answers to try to get to the bottom of what it was that I would REALLY be doing in the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. I was promised a salary raise on an annual basis when I took the position. However, due to the decline in popularity among for-profit education (especially EDMC) it was recently announced that there were no longer raises or job advancement available.
