    A Role Other Than Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I want to be frank, however protecting my identity is the highest priority. My interview experience was filled with evasiveness, disorganization, and finally disrespect. The employee whom I interacted with should be identified and reprimanded for their unprofessional conduct. It is unfortunate that they know that they should act in a better manner, yet they intentionally chose to do otherwise. I would be wary of this company and I am hesitant to advise anyone regarding Marhnasium.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview Details

    I contacted them through my college, as I was searching for jobs through the college website. I emailed Mathnasium about the offering and was told to arrive at a certain appointment date with the attached application form and my resume. They also told me that I had to take a math literacy test. So when I went there, I handed in those two items and was immediately asked to take the test. There were two parts - the first part dealt with basic math, while the second had math content that went up to Trigonometry. Being a math wizard, I found it pretty easy. I never got any form of a regular interview though. I was told that they'll get in touch right after I had finished the literacy test. I am currently waiting for my results.

    It was the same pay for all new employees. Just keep cool and don't be nervous while taking the test.

    Mathematics Instructor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview Details

    I initiated contact by emailing after being told they were opening a new location in Brooklyn. I was told to come in the next day to interview. When I showed up I was asked if I was there for the math test - I responded no I didn't need tutoring, I was there to tutor. I was apparently there for the math test - long, thorough, covered all grades and a lot of material. It took a lot of time, made the interview longer than I had anticipated but applicants who want to instruct math should be comfortable with it. Scored in front of me. Owner was impressed with my skills and how I answered interview and math questions. Offered job on the spot which I at first accepted. A LOT of paperwork emailed to me later that night, including: an agreement to pay back the background fee if I failed; an agreement to pay back the fee if I resigned within 90 days; a noncompete that said I couldn't work at any other math instruction job (aside from a nonprofit public school) for a year within 50 miles, etc.

    After several days of contemplation, I turned down the job due to some "red flag" comments/questions during interview, the 90 day clause, the insane noncompete (for someone who just quit NYCDOE and Math Instruction is how I make a living), the way-too-low wage, and extraneous circumstances.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview Details

    I inquired for a possible position after a friend of mine who worked at the center informed me about a an employee leaving. After initial email communication, I came in for an interview. Mostly behavioral style questions. How would you handle certain situations kind of questions. After that, there was a fairly simple math proficiency exam. Basic arithmetic all the way up to geometric proofs and a bit of algebra 2 stuff.

    • Hmmm most difficult would be the math exam especially the geometric proof section.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mathnasium in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    They had me take a math test on elementary though high school math questions after a brief form and conversation with the manager. I needed a 85 and I got an 84. They gave some partial credit but not to me so I guess they didn't want me. When I asked to see my test they claimed to have shreaded it. I guess I really screwed something up because as far as I can tell they really didn't want me.

    Interview Details

    first i was interviewed over the phone. Then had to take a math literacy test at the center. Test consisted of some basic algebra, geometry, and fractions. A couple days later, I had a 1-1 interview with the director. Very friendly environment and people. The Interview is mainly to see your interpersonal skills since the test takes care of the math portion.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Mathnasium.

    Interview Details

    First, we were each given an application to fill out. Then we needed to complete a math test with a satisfactory score; it was not especially difficult, I just wasn't prepared for some of the questions. The actual interview, which followed, was relaxed. Both interviewers were extremely courteous and professional.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mathnasium in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I emailed my resume and a cover letter in the morning, and received a call the same day. They told me to come in for an interview, explained there would be a math assessment (up to geometry, but it was primarily algebra). The interview was pretty straightforward. They asked me about my past tutoring experience and educational background and ran a scenario where I tutored the director on two problems. Really brush up on simple algebra and solving different word problems and equations. They went over the exam and I got hired on the spot.
