    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Knowledge Universe (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Basically applied online. Called me in about 2 days. Went in for interview with center director. Asked situational questions. Then came back for second interview with district manager who asks questions like she wants you to fail. Took forever to hear anything back. Very long process.
