Tutur Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Essex County College.

Interview Details – The LSAMP Program pairs honors students with other LSAMP students needing additional help in STEM courses. This program provides benefits to both the mentors and the mentees. Tutors are given the opportunity for employment and the experience of teaching, which deepens their knowledge in the sciences. Students being helped are given the opportunity to improve their grades and maintain the higher GPAs needed to transfer to four year colleges and universities. Every year more than 150 students attend tutoring in math and science on a weekly basis. Our studies have shown that 80 % of students who were struggling with a subject at the beginning of a semester pass it successfully after entering the tutoring-mentoring program.

Very Easy Interview

Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee
Newark, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Essex County College in January 2011.

Interview Details – Sent resume to recruiter. Recruiter scheduled interview a couple of days later. Then, interview with assistant director over basic computer knowledge. No behavioral questions. Very easy.

After a few days, a phone call from HR will confirm employment. Then, on the first day, W-2 form will be given out to be signed.

Interview Question – Nothing. Every question were expected.   Answer Question

Instructor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Essex County College

Interview Details – Unconventional. Sometimes a singular expression suffices. The requirement of a 50-word minimum to accept an answer is too constraining.The process was unconventional and to offer details would render the anonymity of which you speak moot.

Interview Question – None that can be shared as it was posed to eliminate and the poser did not anticipate that the answer would be known.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Why not? One should not tread where one is not desired.
