    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Princeton Review.

    Interview

    Extremely curt and unprofessional.
    If the HR Rep did not pick the scheduling, I feel for them and they should have voiced an idea/ideas for the phone screening format. If the HR contact did choose the format, than that is their opportunity to learn to speak up as I could immediately sense stress/hurriedness in their voice.
    The phone screen was 15 minutes and 2 times during the conversation I was told something to the effect that "I have back, to back, to back appointments."
     As a sales professional, I understand that everyone's time is scarce, but I sincerely felt that their HR/Recruiting is a 'check the box' organization. If you're newer to sales and would like to work on your "elevator pitch" than I'd recommend accepting the phone screen to help your skills and perhaps it will lead to a sales role.
    Otherwise, I'd say this organization is a "pass"

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Princeton Review in December 2019.

    Interview

    After application was submitted, I was asked to answer a questionnaire from the hiring manager. Had three separate phone interviews. The last interview was with a senior manager who was curt and appeared to be in a foul mood. I attempted to reach the hiring manager after the last interview but did not get a response. I never received a rejection letter, but assume the position was filled.

    SAT Tutor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Princeton Review (Washington, DC) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I started the interview process while I was abroad, so this may not be what everyone does: it started with an online application. After I submitted the application (all about basic stuff: education, resume, etc.), I received a message from a staff member in the DC office. She then had me set up a Skype interview. I assume this would have been in person if I had been in the country. Lastly, when I came back to DC I participated in a teaching interview where I taught the subject of my choice to one of the office managers for about 15 mins. After those three stages, I was hired and I started the training process.

    Operations Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Princeton Review (Washington, DC) in December 2018.

    Interview

    The job is simply a part-time Administrative Assistant position. The company first asked me by email to compose three writing responses based on scenarios for customer service experience which I do not have any customer service skills or customer service experience at all. The Princeton Review told me the position is entry-level. I was then asked to come for an in-person interview. The company was simply reading questions from a worksheet made by Princeton Review and Tutor.com. Some of the questions I couldn't answer as I did not have experience, skills, and/or employment work scenarios to answer it.

    In Early-January 2019, I reached out to the company to know if there was a status update of the position. and I never heard back. All it reads on my application status which went from "Thanks for expressing your interest in the position of Operations Assistant. If additional information is required, this space will indicate next steps." to "Thank you for your interest in Operations Assistant." An email or a phone call would have been nice as opposed to the company's website. I really had no interested in the job at all.
