    Average Interview

    Interview

    Consisted of a phone interview, an in person interview and a test. It was a standard interview process I would say. Each center is different, so the interviewing process would vary depending on which location you go to.

    Met with the center director asking if there are any vacancies, and she scheduled an interview. Interview was very easy going, she didn't ask unnecessary questions. The Center Director looks for personality and skills to fit the job. Very non-judgmental environment.

    Interview

    Asked basic questions and went over my grades from school. High GPA people are usually graders while lower GPA people work with younger kids and tutor them. Very basic interview and not that much in depth. Easy to get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Kumon North America in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was quite simplistic, the typical "why should you have this job" "tell me about yourself" type of questions. However they had no seasonal jobs, and required a minimum of a one year commitment, which i found somewhat ridiculous since it is only a part time job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kumon North America.

    Interview

    Had to take the exam the kids entering the program do - had 20 minutes for the reading and 20 for the math portion. Had long division, long multiplication, adding, etc. The reading part had predicate/subject relationships, etc. Seems easy but the time goes very fast. You get a stopwatch so you can see how much time you have left.

    Interview

    None. Was not a lenghty interview process just asked if hiring. Was a former student so I already knew a lot about the program and didnt have to do a placement test at all

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kumon North America.

    Interview

    The interview process was very casual and laid back. The managers wanted to see if I was a good fit. They asked questions that would give them a better idea of who I am as a person and also how I would fit into the culture at that center. Great for a first job during high school!
