    Part Time Faculty Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan Test Prep.

    Interview

    This is a mult-step process, and from what I gather, it's fairly easy to get through the process should you actually complete each step. However, you can be cut at any point in the process.
    1. Apply online
    2. Complete online videotaped session in which you "teach" a sample problem. This is not live so you can retape it a couple of times if you mess up.
    3. Live Skype interview with hiring manager -- review of your videotaped session and normal interview questions. This was the easiest point for me to ask my many questions.
    4. Live Skype "technical evaluation" with a veteran teacher -- this was the most stressful as you needed to prepare 4 sample problems which s/he could choose at random to have you present to him or her. Feedback is provided and you are expected to include it in the next problem you work through with them. Additional normal interview questions.
    5. Background check (they actually call your references)

    Center Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan Test Prep (Richmond, VA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Had multiple phone and in-person interviews, each going progressively "higher." KTP has a relatively flat organizational structure, so I was talking to regional and multi-state directors fairly quickly. They flew me in to home office to interview other directors on the team. The interview was more about "fit" than ability -- they were very concerned that I had the right "be positive and do what it takes to succeed" attitude. Ultimately it came down to how I got along with everyone over lunch.

    Nursing Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kaplan Test Prep (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process was all automated, there was an initial audition and then a web based interview. However the pay was mentioned at the end and they only pay $15/hour for 15-18 hrs of training and minimum wage for 40+ hours of prep - this is not appropriate pay for a nursing professional with a Masters degree

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaplan Test Prep (New York, NY).

    Interview

    phone interview and then in-person interview
    it was pretty easy. mostly behavioral questions. They want you to work for semester intern and summer. They are looking for someone who is responsible, who can multi-task and dilligent. If you prove to them those things and that you have a passion in marketing, you are most likely going to get it. Not a difficult interview process at all.
