    I have been working at City Colleges of Chicago full-time (More than 3 years)


    Good diversity among students, staff and faculty. Campuses are situated in diverse Chicago neighborhoods, which makes for unique partnerships with various colleges. (There are seven in all.) Great students overall!


    Historically, staff hirings were politically motivated given Chicago's long practice of nepotism and cronyism in government. Political hiring has resulted in pockets of incompetence and a lack of professional development, particularly among support staff .

    DEI Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at City Colleges of Chicago (New York, NY).


    I got a phone screen after two months and interviewed the following week. There were two interviewers who asked basic questions of "Tell me about yourself" and specific ones to teaching like "How would you help an underprepared student?" or "Tell me about a difficult time you had with a student and how you handled it." They discussed scheduling with me and by the end of the day they emailed me an offer. I initially applied for a Biology Tutor position and was told about the remedial education tutor position which had more openings. Also, it was unlisted on indeed so there was not a lot of external competition I had to deal with. If you have the right qualifications, experience (I had three years as a Teaching Assistant in Chemistry) and are very passionate about helping remedial students then the process isn't so bad. Its a good fit all around for the program directors, you and the students.
