Talent Acquisition Partner

My company offers 100% paid tuition for Masters programs at either Capella or Strayer university. I would get my MS in Human Resources. When recruiting, do you value degrees from these online schools as much as you would for other colleges? I don’t want to waste my time if so.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Strayer University (Charlotte, NC) in Jul 2022


    Worst interview I've ever been in, the interviewer did not know what he was doing or prepared at all. Obviously reading from a script and when I would answer his questions he would literally repeat my entire answer back as he typed it in. It seemed like he was not listening and was patronizing me when he was listening. After 30 minutes of patronizing and being completely inept, I felt like my time was being wasted and I promptly ended the interview. I have never ended an interview in the middle of an interview until now. It was an embarrassment for me and Strayer should feel embarrassed about the incompetency of their employees.
