Very Easy Interview

Student Athlete Tutor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Norman, OK

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Oklahoma in August 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process was really quick and easy - nothing too formal and nothing tricky at all. They just ask you about yourself, your school work, and anything related to tutoring. They'll ask you which subjects you feel comfortable tutoring in, and other questions like that. The hiring and interview process should not be a worry.

Interview Question – They were all easy, but be prepared to answer why you should be tutoring for whatever subject you're trying to tutor in.   Answer Question

Tutor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Norman, OK

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Oklahoma in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was told about the position by one of the people I went to high school with. They mainly wanted to know how well I had done in my previous classes. The interview was low-stress and I was apparently overdressed, but my supervisor has been really great to work with

Interview Question – Most of the questions were mainly about my schedule and my previous experiences as a tutor. No curve balls here.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The rates were standard but I was eventually able to negotiate a raise when I matriculated to graduate status.
