Interview Details – Interviewer asked me what area of town was most convenient, if I had any previous experience with youth care, If I could provide my own transportation, and if there was any concern or worries when background screening is processed. I was contacted within 1-1/2 to 2 weeks and informed of the school that I would be working at. I was to be expecting a call from my school Project manager before within the waiting period. Met the school project manager and the Project manager would give an explanation on how the program works and what I was going to be doing within a regular school day.

Tutor Interview

Tutor
Waco, TX

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Communities In Schools in August 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was very formal, but not too uptight and intimidating. It was actually quite a pleasant process. I applied by checking out their site online and then submitting the necessary forms and paperwork. The application is actually quite lengthy and tedious because it is for a tutoring job, and you'll be working with kids which require that you submit background checks and all this other info to make sure you aren't a child abuser, etc. A few days later, got the call for interview. Went in, and the lady who interviewed me was very nice, but firm. She was looking for someone who would be dedicated and passionate about educating children and helping them stay motivated and in school. After that interview, a day or two later, got an e-mail saying I got the job and the date for training/orientation.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Be very confident and passionate about education, especially since the students you'll be dealing with are at high-risk of dropout. They are looking for tutors who have qualities like patience, outgoing personality, and creativity in planning activities and education.

Student Advocate Interview

Student Advocate

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Communities In Schools in February 2009.

Interview Details – 2 interviews with senior management and then potential direct supervisor. everyone seemed friendly and they gave me time to shadow an employee for 1-2 days to see if the work was something i'd enjoy. I'd recommend that you be yourself and be honest about your experience. They aren;t always lookijng for someone with a lot of experience but rather someone who loves kids and will complete their job tasks. We often go above and beyond if we have the time.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations
