    Online Writing Tutor Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Brainfuse (Seattle, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was required to submit the usual background information (resume, statement of interest, work history and copy of diploma), as well as completing and returning a sample essay review for a made up customer. Photocopies of my credentials were acceptable. The sample writing review was a bit of a hassle as the forms were PDFs, and the entire essay had to be copied into Google Docs in a specified format, then filled in with my commentary. It was time consuming, but I suppose one could get the hang of it easily enough with a little practice after being hired. I sent it in, and about 48 hours later I received a rejection notice via email. No reasons were specified except that it was apparently over the essay review I had completed, rather than anything in my credentials. When I pressed for specifics, they refused to give me any.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brainfuse (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. You have to pass a series of small tests. The directions were clear and the tests were not difficult. Mainly, they just want to see if you are capable of tutoring in the field that you are applying for. There were scenarios that you had to describe appropriate actions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Brainfuse (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Everything was done over email. Most emails were dense with a lot of info, but not great organization or clear action items. Asked for proof of educational background and that was it. Afterwards, I was sent a long email with 10 attachments and expected to figure out what to do and how to work from there.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brainfuse in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied a few days ago for French tutoring.
    They asked me to send my resume then asked me my proficiency in computer science. I told them i have an intermediate level with most softwares but i have a good level in Word and Powerpoint.
    They sent me an application and asked me to highlight the subjects i wanted to teach.
    I have highlighted French and Powerpoint. The other subjects were Excel and some softwares i don't even know.
    In my surprise i received an e-mail saying i couldn't be a tutor with just these two subjects.
    I was really pissed because they never told me there is a specific number of subjects to choose and it's not professional to ask people to teach subjects they don't master.
    If i choose some subjects i don't know, it won't be fair to the students.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brainfuse (Nashville, TN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The "interview" consisted of reviewing an academic paper and submitting my assessment, as I would if I were a tutor. There were no questions asked, it was as simple as reviewing the given essay and submitting it to the hiring professional at Brainfuse.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brainfuse.

    Interview

    There is an application process, and an invitation to take quizzes to demonstrate proficiency. The "writing quiz" appeared to have so many errors that choosing one correct answer was not easy! There were errors present, without options to provide corrections as the only editing options were to choose from those provided. The quizzes are annoying and time consuming. Plus, the reviews make me nervous:(

    Interview

    This company filters employees mostly by education and their qualifying tests. If you want to tutor a subject, a degree and passing their exam for the subject may be sufficient. Their exams are timed, but the time limit is generous.

    Almost 10% of the Calc I questions made no sense, but the harder problems were correct, leaving a bizarre impression.

    Interview Questions

    • There was one question that asked where g(x)=\int_0^x f(t)dt is decreasing. The function f was more involved but just imagine it was f(t)=-sin(t) and the choices included [0,\pi/8] and [\pi/8,\pi] and you say "huh?" and choose the second one because it's bigger. Wrong, it says. Fair enough I guess, if you're not trying to work for *oogle, but only to stay out of ***-Mart.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brainfuse.

    Interview

    I was just sent a bunch of documents to go through and sign. Then, I was given a few tests to check if I qualify for the subject. I was started tutoring before I even finished the tests. I believe I was given the test after I started tutoring.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brainfuse (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was rushed, due to an urgent need for tutors. I quickly passed the test and the screening process, while being rushed along by administration. After being accepted, I had no direct contact with a regular mentor, to help reinforce guidelines in the training process. I found myself harassed by monitors, when small issues came up with student dissatisfaction. I gave my best as a tutor and received nothing, in terms of positive encouragement.
