interviewed at Princeton Review in July 2014.
Territory manager was friendly, energetic, and straightforward. For the interview, i was asked to prepare a 5 minute teachback on any non-academic subject. Afterward, I took a shortened SAT exam. Office was small and casual. I can tell that they are looking for instructors who can make the SAT studying process a fun and enjoyable experience.
- Questions on the SAT exam. I didn't expect taking an SAT exam (even if it was a shortened version). Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Princeton Review (Framingham, MA) in August 2013.
No details of what they needed. A country club that is reluctant to tell you anything about the company. Proper decision making people were either absent or despondent in their impression of the company. Face to Face with varied people who didn't really care of what is important to the position open but just wanted a buddy.
- The questions were open ended questions of yourself never any engaging questions of what you bring to the company. When you ask for details or what is expected they clam up and later said "you rubbed them the wrong way". Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Princeton Review (San Francisco, CA).
The interview was unprofessional by young kids who did not prepare at all for the interview. They seem unsure of the job duties, the hours, what was involved, etc. It seemed as though I was being interviewed by undergraduate interns. I might have made them uncomfortable by asking too many difficult questions which made the interview awkward. I like working for smart people and age is unimportant but the guys here seemed to lack experience in life or passion for anything. They might have just gotten to work and might have totally forgotten about the appointment. This was in downtown SF office. A total waste of time.
- Not sure they had any real questions. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Princeton Review (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2013.
Applied for the position via email, they responded within a week. For the interview, they ask you to prepare a 5 minute teaching example, to show them how you teach. It's better if you pick a topic that isn't related to the SAT questions. The 5 minutes is only an estimate, you can go a little over that.
After your teaching presentation, they speak with you regarding the job and answer any questions you may have. They did not ask me any behavioral questions, but they did ask about my degree and my current job.
They give you the option of a phone interview in case you cannot come out to their office, but I think it's easier in person. Also, if you have not taken the SAT or cannot prove your grade, you have to take a mock SAT test if your interview goes smoothly, before they start training you.
- One of the interviewers pretended to not understand what I was explaining, to see how I would explain it another way to a student. He acted pretty genuinely though, and I thought he actually didn't understand and I panicked, and this was pretty visible to him. Answer Question
