    Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Westwood College (Anaheim, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The first step is over the phone. They ask you about your experience. Your work style and drive for the position. After phone interview you speak to Regional manager and from there we meet in person!

    They drill you on what you can bring to the team and why? My perception of the people they are uptight and not that excited about students just keeping a job!

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle rejection?   1 Answer
    • Do you know how to develop leads?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you are taking the offer but you want more then ask! They will go a level higher to see if they can approve your request.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Westwood College.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruited from Career Builder. He screened me initially and then forwarded my resume to the Director of Admissions. I had one quick phone screen and was invited in for an in-person interview. I came in two days letter, met the DA and knew that this was the type of position I was looking for. I needed to meet with the DA's boss but he lives across the country and wouldn't be back to this campus for a few weeks. So I scheduled another interview for the following week to come in and do a Skype interview with that manager. They offered me the job on the spot, I submitted my paperwork, and about 8 days later was my start date.

    Super quick. Super easy. Very professional.
