    Assistant Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Director of Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Hollywood, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Quite possibly the most unprofessional interview I had ever been on. The manager giving the interview was taking calls, responding to emails, and allowing subordinates to walk in and out of the office during our conversation. Almost all of my answers were either interrupted by one of these distractions or she would cut me off mid-sentence.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Approx. 1-hour interviewer with Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, the Dean of Academic Affairs, and the Director of Institutional Effectiveness. Seemed like a pretty standard interview, with all three interviewers reading off of a list of questions. They said they would have a hiring decision within 7-10 days. However, to the best of my knowledge the position has not yet been filled.

    Career Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Art Institutes (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Phone interview, behavioral interview and a group interview. There is a brief presentation on expectations, work at AI, and career services before questions. I was interviewed by the director, the regional manager as well as the campus president.
    They were really seeking a person that was the right fit for the job moreso than the exact experience. I liked that they wanted to get to know who I am and why I want to work for the company. I'm glad I prepared by reading about the company, its mission statement, etc.
