Student Mentor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Salt Lake City, UT).

Interview

Screening phone call, then a skype face to face with an hr rep, next a skype face to face with a senior manager. Everyone I spoke to was very nice and engaged. No "tricky" questions. Was asked about relevant situations. Had a good feel of the culture after the interview. Process moved quickly from submitting application, scheduling all the interviews, then the offer. Was overall one of the best interview experiences I've had

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email nearly three weeks later requesting a 30 minute interview through Adobe Connect. Was told that the recorded interview would be passed along to the program manager and I would be contacted within 1-2 weeks. Still waiting to hear back...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Oswego, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    After receiving an interview request through email, I had my first interview. The first interview was easy. I was then invited back to a second interview with a program manager. I felt it went well. I waited 2 weeks before getting an email that I was not selected for the job. Very Disappointed.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had 2 Skype type interviews. The first one was preliminary with questions that you would expect. The second was with some "Higher Ups" and was longer. Overall, it was a smooth, rather timely experience.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an interview about a week after I applied online. The interview went well over Adobe with general questions. It lasted about 30 mins total. I was told that they would pass my video along to the next supervisor. I have not heard back from them in over a week and I am highly qualified.
    *Disappointed*

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Alma, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the job. I did get an interview. It was kind of weird because instead of talking about me and how I would fit into their company, or my past experience, the gentleman just spoke about the company. It almost seemed like he was following a script.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Governors University (Grand Rapids, MI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied about 2 months ago through WGU's website. I received an email asking me to schedule an interview. The interview was via Adobe Connect and was recorded. It was an easy interview with mostly screening questions. They said they will send the recording to the department managers and they will decide who moves to the next stage, which is another interview. Only difficult part was the audio wasn't working and there was an echo which made it difficult to concentrate.

    Got a request for a interview via phone/adobe connect with a HR Recruiter about 4 days after applying. This interview went well, and I was contacted later that evening for another interview via phone/adobe connect with a program manager. I have been told I will hear something in the next couple days. Fingers crossed

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Western Governors University in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very professional yet comfortable process. First interview was really a "screener" to see if I understood the expectations, hours, travel, etc involved. The second interview was with a senior manager from the department, followed by a third interview with another supervisor from the department. The last call was the job offer.
