    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at America Reads and Counts.

    Interview Details

    A pretty easy process. I got an email from the program about applying and from there I just went to the website and applied. The questions on the application are the standard ones. After that, if you get selected, you're invited in for a group interview. It's pretty informal and the questions are pretty easy. There's a very relaxed feel.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at America Reads and Counts in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    First you sent an email with your school schedule and then you set up an interview in person with the head coordinator of the program. It's a formal interview therefore formal attire is required. The staff is really nice and professional and they really like their job. It's an organization that focuses on helping kids of low income to become more independent and develop their skills.

    Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at America Reads and Counts in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very informal (at least for the America Reads and Counts program in my university). After applying, you must attend an information session where you fill out all of the necessary paper work to start working. From the information they presented, it seems as though everyone who applies, and whose class schedule allows them to work the minimum amount of hours per week required (which is about 8 hours a week), automatically is invited to the information session.

    During the session, the America Reads and Counts staff explain what the job entails. Afterward, students are split up into small groups, consisting of about 5-7 people. The interviewer then asks you very basic questions about your major and your reason for applying. It is very informal and the purpose of the group interview is just to get a sense of who you are. You're pretty much guaranteed a job offer afterward, and are assigned a school via email based on your location preferences.

    Interview Questions
