    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First interview on a Thursday, second interview on Friday gave me the opportunity to enjoy lunch with the staff and feel out the culture. Received job offer on Friday to start on Monday. The second interview had me at the office for over three hrs but it was great to eat lunch with the office and go through three panel interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Revolution Prep.

    Interview

    Simple--just talk about having a passion for helping students learn (even if you don't have one, the company doesn't really care; what matters is being able to sell your impressive college degree to prospective clients).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Revolution Prep.

    Interview

    Phone interview and then on campus interview. During the phone interview the recruiter mainly discussed the position and let you ask questions with a few questions directed towards you (more casual and less interview style). The on-campus interview was a thirty minute interview in which they asked a series of behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you'll be successful in this position?   Answer Question

    Branch Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. I was contacted via email by one of the recruiters to set up a time and date. The interview was conducted on my college campus and was fairly brief. To be honest, the questions asked did not capture the entire scope of what the job demanded.

    Interview Questions

    • "Teach me something in three minutes." I had to immediately come up with something that I wanted to teach the interviewer. Luckily I didn't have much trouble, but this can definitely catch people off guard if they're not prepared.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no salary negotiation; this was an internship with a fixed amount of pay.

    Briefly interviewed with basic questions (what's your strength what's your weakness etc) not difficult. There were no exams or tests and the interviewer was very relaxed. He wanted to know about my interests and experiences.

    Interview

    Very nice people and a great company to join for college students looking to gain some teaching and business development experience. I remember the interview was through Skype, and they mostly ask you about why you're interested in the job and how you can connect to your community. After the interview, they respond rather quickly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Chicago, IL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    In order to get to the point where they would interview me, I had to submit a resume, application, and make a video of myself teaching something in 3 minutes or less. What followed was a phone interview followed by an in-person interview; they said initially that I would have to take the ACT to verify that I had qualifying scores, but that never happened.

    Interview

    Very easy interview. They just want to know that you are familiar with your town and the test preparation landscape in the area. It would help if you interacted with previous branch managers to get an idea of what the work is like. Other questions are behavioral.

    • Why should I work with Revolution Prep? (as a parent asking you, a potential branch manager)   Answer Question
