    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Smarthinking in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The recruitment process started for me with an advertisement that I saw in March, which had an April or May deadline. I first heard via email that they were interested in my application about a month after I applied. I was given a skills test (a couple of untimed essays to review according to SMARTHINKING's form) to complete and send back by a deadline. Did that and a few weeks later, I received a positive response, and then received an additional skills test (if I recall correctly) and was asked for permission to check references etc. Then I was scheduled for paid training, which took several weeks. After successfully completing the training, I officially became an employee in September. So, it was a long process from beginning to end, but with lots of down-time in between steps. It was a friendly process.

    Interview Questions
    • No real questions. You are asked to comment on the tutoring samples you are given as part of the screening and as part of the training. They can end the process if they are unsatisfied with your progress.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pay is set, based on degrees (an extra dollar an hour for a master's degree, and then an extra dollar an hour for PhD). No room to negotiate, I don't think.
