    Academic Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    First step is recruiter phone interview. Next you get 8 pages of material and 1 day to create a PowerPoint presentation live via video conference which must be memorized. Then 2 video interviews with managers. Then a computer skills assessment. Next is a 50 question quiz about their product. Seemed to me things that should've been covered in training and not expected to be known before you get hired. They give you a 51 page study guide and 1 day to learn it. The quiz is video and screen share monitored by a manager and it's closed-notes. An exceptional score is 80% so it's very challenging. Many (if not most) of the questions are not on the study guide. They also wanted me to give my current employer less than 2 weeks notice. No offer after all those hoops but perhaps I dodged a bullet.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview from all 3 managers, no really challenging or traditional interview questions. Mostly about my resume and background.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    Had a 30 minute phone screen, then a 2 hour coding challenge, then took a 2 hour IQ test/personality test, and then a 2 hour on-site whiteboard interview.

    The people were really nice and the environment was impressive and start-up-like. Most of the interview/code challenge questions were pretty relevant to the job and reasonable. Overall interview process was pretty time consuming.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (El Monte, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Screening interview via phone,I left a good impression during the phone interview. I followed up a couple times to check on my status via email and phone, but never heard back from the recruiter. This is really unprofessional of the company since the recruiter informed me that she will let me know later about my status.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Revolution Prep in March 2017.

    Interview

    I would encourage tutors in the strongest possible terms NOT to work for Revolution Prep.
     Went through 3 interviews and an extensive job training BEFORE getting the job offer (a weird loophole for Rev Prep to pay employees only $300 for the week of training. When they finally sent the job offer, it was $12 less per hour than I had been verbally promised, and the Rev Prep employees I talked to were incredibly sketchy about it. I ended up rejecting the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The initial application required submission of an instructional video online. I was then invited for a fifteen-minute interview online via Zoom, in which I was asked about my experience, response to criticism, and teaching philosophy. Once I moved on to the next stage, I took a skills test (ACT) and was invited for a week-long training session online. At the end of the week, I was offered a contract.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted a fairly detailed survey about my education and experience, and a short teaching demo video. The interview was a 30-minute online one with 2 directors. They asked some warm-up questions, asked about some specific positive teaching experiences and about my openness to feedback, and told me about their expecations, and asked how questions to see how on-board I'd be with those.
    I had to take one of those awful personality assessments, and one that seemed to test intelligence/ math and word knowledge, but I can't remember if that was before or after the online interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What are 10 ways to use a pencil, other than to write and to erase. (I think they usually ask what you would do in a day if money and travel time were no object, but I didn't get that one.)   1 Answer
