Grader Interview

Grader
Peoria, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kumon North America.

Interview Details – The hiring process was easy, i went into my college career center website to search for a part-time job. The pay was also hire than the on-campus jobs and interaction with kids is something important to consider.
During the interview, the questions were based on school experience such as math and english classes. The experience of where i have been through and the organization i am with. The interview was not at all challenging, however at the times there was no test to take on testing you on math and reading. But now there is, so keep in mind that you may take a test to see how strong you are in reading and math skills.

Interview Question – Only one technical question was asked. It was about when i had an experience in which i had to be in a position where a person is stuck on a certain topic (math/english) and what i would try to do help that person in the situation in understanding the topic better. I chose to speak at a time when i had a group of students un able to understand a chapter in one of there math course, and going through the topic with clear and simple instructions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Help students learning upper math classes.

PI Tutor & Grader for Younger Kids Interview

Anonymous Employee
Henderson, NV

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kumon North America in October 2013.

Interview Details – Email a professional and simply resume to their email designated location. If there are positions available, they'll respond back and ask for an interview which is an instant hire. If no respond, they aren't hiring and they forward your resume to other Kumon centers near the area.

Interview Question – Dealing with younger kids who are sometime stubborn or too young. Constant work and almost no break because Kumon Centers are only open for a couple of days out of the week, so it's considered part-time no matter what.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – First day of work was overwhelming because there are a lot of kids but you get used to it after a couple of days. There isn't any specific training besides knowing how each lessons work. There are some workers who only mainly do grading and focus on the older kids, and another set of tutors who handles younger kids.
