    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Education (Larkspur, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on the website from a Craigslist ad that I saw. I was contacted the next day and scheduled a phone interview. A week later; I was invited to come into the office for an in-person interview. Met with 3 different directors (managers) and they asked me a series of questions. Typical interview fare. Part of the interview required me to take a selection of SAT test questions. I also had to give a quick presentation to teach a topic.
