    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Be aware that you will have to complete a fairly extensive unpaid training as part of the "interview" process. Other than that the hiring process was rather straight forward. Now I'm just trying to meet the word minimum. The main thing I wanted to convey was the unpaid training. Ok, still trying to meet word minimum for this field. Sorry, for the lack of efficiency. This is the problem with online forms. Ok that should be good enough by now, right?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Phoenix.

    Interview

    Posted resume, and about two weeks later was called in for interview. The interview was pleasant and a real conversation, not the crazy questions being asked these days - like what type of a tree would you chose to be, We hit it off right way, and I was offered the job on the spot. I filled out the application and was sent for the standard drug test. Once that was returned I was given my start date. It was a good match and I enjoyed the work.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    There was an online application followed by a very brief phone screening from a recruiter. After the phone screening, I had an interview with an Enrollment Manager. I then had another phone interview with Campus Director because I lived out of town. The Campus Director then routed me back to the Campus Director of Enrollment for a final phone interview that felt like more of a formality.
