    K12 Regional Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2011.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Sales Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Revolution Prep (Chicago, IL) in November 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Revolution Prep (Boston, MA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    First I interviewed with the head of HR. She was very friendly, but did not address my resume. She mostly asked me what I knew about the position and what I liked about the company, and then answered my questions. I was surprised to get a phone call the next day from the VP of Sales asking for a follow-up interview. She was also very friendly, but similarly uninterested in my qualifications for the job. She e-mailed me the next day to tell me I didn't get the position.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    I moved through the interview process very quickly- there were four interviews that went from the Recruiting Manager up to the Leadership Team. Everyone was very enthusiastic about what I could contribute to the company and the process was more conversational than interview style. A couple of the interviews were only hours apart, the rest were just a day or two apart. I really liked everyone that I interviewed with and they made me very excited to work for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • If you are hired for this position, what will your specific strategies be for increasing market share?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate an additional $5 above the original offer. They were reasonable but won't give too much. I think it mostly has to do with how excited they are to bring you on board.
