    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Reading Partners (Charleston, SC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I met with four staff at the Reading Partners office. One read questions from a laptop computer and wrote down my responses while the others offered follow up questions. The interview questions were pretty simple- asking me about past volunteer and leadership experience. It was overall not a difficult process, however I left the interview uncertain if I'd want to work with Reading Partners. My interviewers were withdrawn and rather unengaged in my responses throughout the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Reading Partners (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through Indeed and found it on Jobscore. There is a video or phone recording interview that has pre-recorded questions on it. You record your answer. This can be kind of hard because you are only given 60 seconds or so to answer and process. You can't hang up and call back. After that, someone contacts you probably through email and sets up a phone interview. If you are in the area they will ask to meet you in person. If not then the interview is conducted thru the phone which is weird cause how will they like know who you are if they can't see you, but it's okay.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Reading Partners (Dallas, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed twice over the phone for two different positions before interviewing in person for this position. I had initially declined considering this position, but I was informed that the position I originally applied for had been filled, and so I waited another week to interview for the position I eventually accepted. The office was easy to find, the questions they asked me were relevant, and they allowed ample time for my own questions.
