    Teacher/Tutor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Charleston, SC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was very quick and perhaps more relaxed-than-standard; they were especially interested in my math skills, since math teachers are few and far between at that particular center. They sent me home with a packet to fill out and asked me to let them know when I could start. I did not find out until after I was hired that I needed to have a teaching certificate to secure my position.

I remember asking about the student population, opportunities for more hours and promotions, available technology, and the staff. My questions were all answered.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Rochester, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    At the time I originally applied, they were not hiring, and said they would contact me when they were. They contacted me a few months later like they said they would, I scheduled an interview for either the next day or the day after. I interviewed with the owner. Her questions were very direct and straightforward, but the interview was short and simple. Then, I observed out at the tables where the students were being tutored.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers.

    Interview

    Applied online through job listing and received an email for an interview about a week later. Interviewed with the center's Director of Education and then observed instruction afterwards. A follow up phone interview was scheduled with the Center Director who primarily asked situational questions. About a week after that, I received an email with an offer letter and new hire forms. Scheduled a meeting after new hire forms were completed to finalize things. Entire process took about 3 weeks or so.
