I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.

The process took a day - interviewed 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 Question – Do you have experience working with children? (Note: Prior experience working with children is not needed to obtain a job as a tutor for America Reads and Counts.)   Answer Question
