Interview

Very straightforward. Interviewer went through process beforehand, then role played through online messaging and voice. The appointment was on time and the interviewer was pleasant. During role play must stay in character as to give a full presentation of the job duties.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tutor.com (Virginia Beach, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    You apply online, then take a test over the subject you want to tutor. If you pass, you do an online interview with a mentor. The interview is actually a practice tutoring session online. So you have to read the resources for how to tutor that are given to you.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tutor.com (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The competency tests that you have to complete aren't hard. You have to pass those before you schedule for a mock tutoring session with a mentor. The mock tutoring session was a joke. I was rushed through it and as I was writing an answer to my FIRST question, the interviewer wanted to connect to a voice call. I was totally caught off guard and didn't even have time to gather my thoughts. She ended the phone call and the session within 2 minutes after. They asked me to reschedule, so I did and the interviewer never connected. I contacted tutor support regarding the issue after waiting 30 minutes to connect (it wasn't a connection issue). After 4 days I still haven't heard anything from tutor support.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tutor.com (Richmond, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After creating a profile they have online tests for the all the subjects offered. When you pass one you're able to schedule a mock interview. My subject is accounting, which you have to have a degree to tutor, and the degree plus the test are your proof of knowledge, so the mock interview essentially just makes sure you're capable in the aspects of tutoring outside of content knowledge. The interview takes place in the online classroom that you tutor students with. The interviewer had no accounting knowledge but had some accounting questions for me, pretending to be a student. I could have made my answers up as long as it was convincing, because at this point they just want to make sure you can break it down and help a student who is completely clueless. The interview was 43.6 minutes long (It saves the transcript, which is how I know), and tested my tutoring ability using the chat function, then the voice function. At the end, my interviewer told me that I'll know in a couple days if I got the job.

    Interview

    Fairly simple: all chat-based, no in-person or phone interviews. Mock tutoring session, helping out the recruiter playing the role of student. Also had to write a brief, simple essay. It's a bit awkward, not having that face-to-face communication, but my recruiter was friendly enough, and I got through the session just fine.

    The paperwork was ridiculous, but once you are past that part it isn't too bad. Afterwards, you set up a phone interview with someone, and they call and quiz you on the software and ask a few questions
