    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at America Reads and Counts (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    You don't really get interviewed. As long as you show that you have work study eligibility, you're chosen. You go through an orientation then go into separate rooms with about 5 other tutors and one person asks if you have any experience and asks if you have any questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at America Reads and Counts (Fullerton, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy process. I applied through my school's federal work study website, so I am no sure if this job is available to non-federal work study students. Applied online and was contacted about a week later by email. Scheduled an in-person group interview session through this email. This took about another week.

    A pretty easy process. I got an email from the program about applying and from there I just went to the website and applied. The questions on the application are the standard ones. After that, if you get selected, you're invited in for a group interview. It's pretty informal and the questions are pretty easy. There's a very relaxed feel.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at America Reads and Counts (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Applicants had to attend an orientation where we learned about the program and the experiences of former tutors. Several videos were shown on the proper and improper method of interacting with students. Then, group interviews of about a dozen applicants and 1 interviewer were conducted. The interviewer asked us questions about our backgrounds and interest in teaching children. It was a fairly casual experience and a week or two later we were allowed to start working.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at America Reads and Counts (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is very informal (at least for the America Reads and Counts program in my university). After applying, you must attend an information session where you fill out all of the necessary paper work to start working. From the information they presented, it seems as though everyone who applies, and whose class schedule allows them to work the minimum amount of hours per week required (which is about 8 hours a week), automatically is invited to the information session.

    During the session, the America Reads and Counts staff explain what the job entails. Afterward, students are split up into small groups, consisting of about 5-7 people. The interviewer then asks you very basic questions about your major and your reason for applying. It is very informal and the purpose of the group interview is just to get a sense of who you are. You're pretty much guaranteed a job offer afterward, and are assigned a school via email based on your location preferences.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have experience working with children? (Note: Prior experience working with children is not needed to obtain a job as a tutor for America Reads and Counts.)   Answer Question
