Interviewed at Revolution Prep
Interview Details – Very nice people and a great company to join for college students looking to gain some teaching and business development experience. I remember the interview was through Skype, and they mostly ask you about why you're interested in the job and how you can connect to your community. After the interview, they respond rather quickly.
Interview Question – What steps would you take to start a test prep branch in your hometown? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Revolution Prep in August 2013.
Interview Details – In order to get to the point where they would interview me, I had to submit a resume, application, and make a video of myself teaching something in 3 minutes or less. What followed was a phone interview followed by an in-person interview; they said initially that I would have to take the ACT to verify that I had qualifying scores, but that never happened.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Revolution Prep in May 2012.
Interview Details – Apply online, submit resume, very easy
Interview through Skype, very basic behavioral questions. Most of that was very easy to answer if you study just a little. If you are decent, you will be hired on the spot. Most people do. If you don't, you will be put on a wait list.
Interview Question – What is the first step you will take when starting this business back in your home town? How will you advertise and get the word out? Who will you connect with? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable. Contract. READ THE COMPENSATION CAREFULLY. Its not exactly 40/60 because YOU bear all the costs which is deducted from your profits. You won't ever lose money or put your own money in though.

Interview Details – Interviewed for K12 Regional Manager in August. First interview was over the phone with an in house recruiter. Went well and she scheduled a follow up with the hiring manager. That interview went well as well (or so I thought) and he scheduled an interview with their National SM. We did that interview over Skype, and I thought I killed it! I closed with the classic close question, and he recognized it and told me he would have been disappointed if I hadn't. He told me they were down to 3 candidates and I was the first he talked to of the 3. He promised to get back to me either way, which I thought was nice. On the following Monday, the position was reposted and I got a call from HR that they went with another candidate. Weird? Anyhow, it left me to wonderif perhaps I am overqualified.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you talked someone into something they did not want to do? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Revolution Prep in June 2011.
Interview Details – Received a phone call to set up a phone interview about 2-3 weeks after applying. Was asked the general details of my resume and past experiences. Was asked how my past experiences can be translated to the job position.
I asked the recruiter what she perceived to be the challenges that I might face for the job position and she described the environment and culture to be entrepreneurial and requires a great deal of self-initiative.
Recruiter was very nice and cordial.
Interview Question – Run me through your background- education and work Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Revolution Prep in March 2010.
Interview Details – Recruiter was very friendly and promptly made an appointment for an in-person interview. Interviewers stressed importance of relocating, asked situational/behavioral questions and were very nice. They are SUPER big on relocating and I think they could sense my hesitation so they did not offer me a position. Definitely know you can relocate before you waste your time with an interview.
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Revolution Prep in November 2009.
Interview Details – Set up phone interview for following day. I was asked general questions about job experience and why I wanted to work for company. The interviewer then explained what the job was and how I would be contacted for the next step. I was called for a second interview the next day. The second interview was face to face and could not have been more unprofessional. I was interviewed in a small food court type area within a warehouse complex. I felt like I was being interviewed for a job at Taco bell for minimum wage. All the interviewer could tell me about goals for the company was how much money they wanted to make. She never said anything about helping kids do better on tests or growing personal to become better leaders and employees within the organization. Very disappointing interview from what I thought was a good company.
