    Education Partnership Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at MIND Research Institute (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    One-on-one with sales manager (direct supervisor) in person. I was referred to the position by an internal employee so the process was less of a challenge verses a non-referral. I didn't have to go through a second review. There will little transparency when explaining the position and job duties. I was also given ample opportunity to interview the interviewer. Which was important since they would be my direct supervisor

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MIND Research Institute (Irvine, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I met with one of the curriculum analysts who briefly showed me through the office before talking about the necessary responsibilities for the position. He had me talk through my thought process for a couple of brain teasers that were math related and explained how they used different concepts and methods to break down math for students. He then asked about past experiences based on my resume and what I had done in the past to help students who didn't understand the material being taught. The interview lasted around an hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MIND Research Institute (Irvine, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    A few days after applying for the position, I was contacted by HR and scheduled a phone interview for the following week.

    Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MIND Research Institute.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and I had a series of interviews with different members of the management team. Since most of the managers have a sales background and have never run a non-profit and don't understand fundraising, their questions were not very thoughtful or applicable to the position.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I was married and if I had children. When I responded, yes, I was asked "who would take care of my children since this job is very demanding".   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The organization is run like a start up software company, and appeared to be masquerading as a non-profit to drive software sales and use philanthropy to discount the software. Most non-profit professionals have an ethical issue with this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MIND Research Institute (Irvine, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back and was probably one of the easiest I have ever experienced. The questions were very straight forward and well-thought out, not like all those behavioral questions that really don't have relevance to the position. The Manager was very likable and fair-minded.
