Achieve3000® is the leading differentiated literacy platform in blended learning programs today, serving nearly three million students worldwide. For over 16 years, Achieve3000’s patented model of online differentiated instruction provides the same state standards-aligned, grade-appropriate content to each student, but tailored at 12 levels in English and 8 in Spanish to reach all students one-on-one, at their individual Lexile® reading levels. The Achieve3000 platform, accessible anywhere, anytime, and on any device, with or without an internet connection, is proven to deliver significant learning gains for students, many making double to triple the expected growth in a single school year. A recent review published by the Evidence for ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) website recognizes Achieve3000 with the highest rating of “Strong Evidence” of efficacy for middle and high school students with the largest average effect size (+0.29) achieved by literacy solutions.

    Regional Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lakewood, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Achieve3000 (Lakewood, NJ) in October 2015.


    Worked through a recruiter. Had a live interview and presentation in my local area with 2 sales vps and hr. I was then was flown to New Jersey for an interview with the founder about 2 weeks later. The interview in New Jersey was not professional. I was only interviewing with the founder. She was late to the interview. She interrupted my presentation to ask about my current employer, and the hr contact clearly had me mixed up another candidate. The founder only "interviewed" me for about 20 minutes. The whole experience was over in 40 minutes. I never heard from them again, so have no feedback or information. I am glad that I learned then that my time was not valuable, and the fear that the employees live in of the founder.
