    I have been working at Revolution Prep (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent organizational structure, standards, and workplace culture. Things move fast and much is expected of employees, but time flies at the office and it's much more rewarding than working at a company where you just sit at a desk and surf the internet for half the day.

    Cons

    Pace can be mentally and physically tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Be more active about encouraging people to take time off. Rev Prep is more emotionally/mentally demanding than most places, and employees here need to be herded toward R&R.

    Academic Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Revolution Prep (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    First step is recruiter phone interview. Next you get 8 pages of material and 1 day to create a PowerPoint presentation live via video conference which must be memorized. Then 2 video interviews with managers. Then a computer skills assessment. Next is a 50 question quiz about their product. Seemed to me things that should've been covered in training and not expected to be known before you get hired. They give you a 51 page study guide and 1 day to learn it. The quiz is video and screen share monitored by a manager and it's closed-notes. An exceptional score is 80% so it's very challenging. Many (if not most) of the questions are not on the study guide. They also wanted me to give my current employer less than 2 weeks notice. No offer after all those hoops but perhaps I dodged a bullet.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview from all 3 managers, no really challenging or traditional interview questions. Mostly about my resume and background.   Answer Question
