    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaplan (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process involved doing a "mock teach" where I was expected to teach on a subject of my choosing for 20 minutes. The "students" were other employees who were available to sit in on the process. They were courteous and attentive. Because of the amount of prior experience that I had, the interview process was not very extensive.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if a student asked you how to do something that was not ethical?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was asked what I expected for salary, and was told that there were specific pay rates depending on experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kaplan (Reno, NV) in October 2008.

    Interview

    I interviewed for MCAT specialist. Kaplan appears to be always interested in hiring this difficult-to-fill position. Had to take the MCAT pre-test and have good scores, present a short, non-academic lecture, but was welcomed and treated well.

    This job is part-time, irregular hours. It is suitable for a high school science teacher, a grad student, or a bright, scientifically-minded stay-home-Mom (as I was.)

    One thing to watch for is that you spend 1-2 hours prepping for each hour you work, and the prep hours are paid at $7/hour. It lowers the overall dollars per hour rate that you are earning, but if you're a teacher, you're already used to doing much of that same prep work for free, so $7/hour is a bonus.

    Interview Questions

    • Having to prepare a 3-5 minute non-academic presentation was a bit of work. They really want it to be non-academic.   1 Answer
