    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at WyzAnt (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I'm going to chalk it up to growing pains, particularly post-major investment after years of impressive bootstrapping, but -- my oh my -- the SF-based satilite office was an utter mess. I understand the challenges of the office's infancy as a non-HQ hub, but, operationally, it was truly scary, almost laughable.

    No company with this amount of qualified milestones, proven sustainability, revenues, and funding behind it should be so sloppy in its execution. The concept of "best practices" certainly did not apply AT ALL; and if the leadership doesn't do something quickly, then I fear the company's failed attempt at a first impression in SF and Silicon Valley will haunt it for some time.

    • I did most of the questioning, which isn't necessarily a negative. But it did give me pause.   Answer Question

    Private Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WyzAnt (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    After submitting an application, they review it before they decide if they will call someone.
    So I got a call and they ask you what kind of tutoring experience you have and what subjects you are interested in. Its been awhile but I dont think they ask you anything technical questions . However using their website before you can actively teach you must be approved, after that for every subject you would like to teach you must take an assessment pertaining to the subject which is usually multiple choice. Some assessments just ask you to simply write why you can teach a subject. Everything goes throuh approval which takes less than a week.

    Private Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WyzAnt (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There is not really an interview process in the traditional sense, but you do need to take online assessment tests in order to qualify for the subjects you want to tutor. However, the tests are very fair and do not take very long to complete. You may also have to apply for tutoring jobs by communicating directly to prospective clients, although clients can also contact you if they are looking for a tutor.

    Private Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WyzAnt (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There was no interview, however there are tests in each subject that one wishes to tutor. There is also an optional background check which one can retake at any time. It costs about $8 and the only reason for retaking it is so that it continues to appear current. They don't give any specific guidance about how often one should renew one's background check.

    Private Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at WyzAnt (Denver, CO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After e-mail contact, I provide my phone number so potential clients may call me. (In order to share phone numbers, potential clients must have already submitted their payment information to Wyzant, who made the connection possible). Over the phone, we discuss client needs and possible ways I could meet those needs based on my skills, experience, and education. I tell potential clients that I will be happy to meet with them at their convenience where ever they like. I usually meet new clients at a coffee shop, their home, or a library. When the student is a minor, I meet both parent and student together to get acquainted. When they feel my services fit their needs, we schedule a day and time for weekly tutoring. Approximately 10% of my e-mail contacts hire me, 80% of the phone contacts hire me, and 99% of those who meet with me in person hire me.
