    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Institute of Reading Development (Novato, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It is a multi-stage process that begins with responding to questions online and then doing a couple of interviews. The interviews were calm and friendly and meant to gauge the applicant's interest in reading and in the position after finding out more specifics about the logistical details. All supervisors throughout the interview process and the training are very warm and kind.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very fast and didn't elaborate well the answer sought after. But after sometime, we made a connection and it was a flow. I think the interview should be done via a computer software not on the telephone.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Institute of Reading Development (Remote, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Thus far, I'm in the initial phase of the interviewing process. I initially submitted my resume (primarily consisting of a background in ESE/ASD, ESL, as well as facilitating professional development). I received a reply via email to complete and submit an online application. The next requirement was to complete an online interview. This consisted of 3 questions (prerecorded) which I was allowed to answer via my own recording. The questions consisted of these (paraphrasing):
    1. Provide a brief introduction about yourself
    2. Provide feedback regarding information provided prior to the interview regarding the founder's views on absorption as it relates to imagination and full immersion in reading. Does this resonate with you? Explain and elaborate.
    3. Why ird?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Institute of Reading Development (Atlanta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, uploaded my resume and quickly heard back for a video interview. I did a short canned video interview where I had to record my responses. Then I was contacted for an online interview with a live person. After about 3 weeks I got an email saying that they were no longer pursuing my application. I was stunned. I experience teaching college and was looking for extra income and the chance to increase my experience. I really don't know what more they could possibly have wanted, but if a Ph.D. isn't enough, then wow, their standards must be high!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Institute of Reading Development (Venice, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First you have to fill out an online 16 page questionnaire and then upload your resume. If they like what they see, they email you and you can click on an interview time. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. The interviewer was very nice and told me many things about the company. At one point, and very spontaneously, the interviewer asked me to do some role playing along a script that they use for all their salespeople.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews that went well. I do not have a lot of good to say about this company and how my trainer treated myself and about 10 others that had technical issues that cause us to miss our role playing time. This caused many of us to be told that they were letting us go! Shame on this company for the tech issues they had that caused good people to lose their positions.

    Interview

    After submitting resume immediate response through email to choose a interview date and time from the menu. The interviewer was cold and intimidating . Please be prepared to study THE SCRIPT and follow the script because they are just looking for cold robot's to follow their script. Do not show your personality just follow the script and you'll get hired if you're a robot. I made the mistake of showing my personality,yikes!!
