    Interview

    The LSAMP Program pairs honors students with other LSAMP students needing additional help in STEM courses. This program provides benefits to both the mentors and the mentees. Tutors are given the opportunity for employment and the experience of teaching, which deepens their knowledge in the sciences. Students being helped are given the opportunity to improve their grades and maintain the higher GPAs needed to transfer to four year colleges and universities. Every year more than 150 students attend tutoring in math and science on a weekly basis. Our studies have shown that 80 % of students who were struggling with a subject at the beginning of a semester pass it successfully after entering the tutoring-mentoring program.

    Administrative Assistant Or Secretary (Part Time) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Essex County College (Newark, NJ) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The position was not hard to get and the job process lasted only two weeks and I was employed after only one interview. There were some basic math tests alongside some intellectual questions that were asked but they were no challenge. During the interview, I had to answer questions by the chair which was a bit hard because the chair was an extremely serious person that doesn't smile back even when one does smile with him.

    Interview Questions

    • The aren't that I can remember at this time because I came well prepared for the interview. In other words, it was a piece of cake.   Answer Question

    Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Unconventional. Sometimes a singular expression suffices. The requirement of a 50-word minimum to accept an answer is too constraining.The process was unconventional and to offer details would render the anonymity of which you speak moot.

    Interview Questions

    • None that can be shared as it was posed to eliminate and the poser did not anticipate that the answer would be known.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Why not? One should not tread where one is not desired.
