Student Tutor Interview

Student Tutor

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Education Management Corporation.

Interview Details – Interview process was very straightforward. It really depends on who is in charge of the "Tutoring Center" over at the various Art Institutes. The management underwent many changes since I've started.

Basically, my merit was based first on the grades I received in my classes, and how far I've gone in the curriculum. I'd have to be at least a quarter of the way through with my programs.

Secondly, my expertise with particular programs such as Adobe Creative Suite. It depends on whether they have a need for a tutor of a specific major.

Interview Question – What quarter are you in? What classes have you taken?   View Answer

I interviewed at Education Management Corporation in May 2011.

Interview Details – Met with Admissions Manager. Asked me questions from a sheet. Was hard to read and did not express any interest in actually performing the interview. The only part he seemed interested in was when I explained my rank at my previous job. The process didn't take long at all.

Interview Question – Most questions were very textbook. Toughest one was about solving an issue in the former job.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating, they only have one salary they offer without negotiation.
