    Interview

    Online application --> Phone Interview --> In person Interview

    The interview process was simple and straightforward. The in person interview was problematic in some of the questions they asked, and the company never followed up afterwards (but promised to get back with final decisions by the end of the week).

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Princeton Review.

    Interview

    Extremely curt and unprofessional.
    If the HR Rep did not pick the scheduling, I feel for them and they should have voiced an idea/ideas for the phone screening format. If the HR contact did choose the format, than that is their opportunity to learn to speak up as I could immediately sense stress/hurriedness in their voice.
    The phone screen was 15 minutes and 2 times during the conversation I was told something to the effect that "I have back, to back, to back appointments."
     As a sales professional, I understand that everyone's time is scarce, but I sincerely felt that their HR/Recruiting is a 'check the box' organization. If you're newer to sales and would like to work on your "elevator pitch" than I'd recommend accepting the phone screen to help your skills and perhaps it will lead to a sales role.
    Otherwise, I'd say this organization is a "pass"

    Interview

    There was a phone interview and then after you are called in to teach a five minute sample lesson. Mine was on how to win every-time at tic-tac-toe. This part was fairly easy, do not over think it as I tried to do. Make sure you plan to use a white board

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Princeton Review in December 2019.

    Interview

    After application was submitted, I was asked to answer a questionnaire from the hiring manager. Had three separate phone interviews. The last interview was with a senior manager who was curt and appeared to be in a foul mood. I attempted to reach the hiring manager after the last interview but did not get a response. I never received a rejection letter, but assume the position was filled.

    SAT Tutor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Princeton Review (Washington, DC (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I started the interview process while I was abroad, so this may not be what everyone does: it started with an online application. After I submitted the application (all about basic stuff: education, resume, etc.), I received a message from a staff member in the DC office. She then had me set up a Skype interview. I assume this would have been in person if I had been in the country. Lastly, when I came back to DC I participated in a teaching interview where I taught the subject of my choice to one of the office managers for about 15 mins. After those three stages, I was hired and I started the training process.
