    That's basically what my cousin said. I don't think the pay was great, but he said the job was realllly easy. He worked there for ~2 years.

    So many people at my school work for kumon. I used to go there in elementary school, but the owners were horrible

    **** bad memories are appearing in my mind. I went there for like 3 years. I used take the answer booklet from the kitchen shelf to answer the questions for the homework lol.

    Ahhhh kumon. I would think the work would be super easy. I loved kumon, the owners were kickass and would give everyone christmas presents when the time came. I quit a while ago. I was thinking of bringing them some cupcakes..

    Kumon is a tutoring company that uses special techniques to help you in Math and English.

    They have homework and stuff that you have to complete. This makes you better at those subjects.

    And they have prizes and special "levels" and stuff for you.

    I just got an email back saying she would call back within a week..

    anyone know what the interview process is like? wat questions they ask, any placement tests, etc.

    I went there for 5 years as a kid and work there now and have been for two years.

    Anyway, my pay is great. I make good money (tax free), the hours are great (2-4 days a week for three hours.) My boss is great and took everyone out to eat for Christmas. The only problem is it is the easiest job ever and gets really boring! My boss lets me take work off for school tests/random conflicts, so it ends up being a really great deal.

    I never got interviewed for the job since I was a former student, but I know people who have interviewed at other centers. Another kid I know interviewed at another center and took a placement test, but didn't do good enough to get the job. He is a pretty smart kid, but I guess the other kids competing for the job did better.

    If you work there, check advanced math. It will make you a lot better at math and you can learn math techniques that are really cool and unique in the harder levels (J and beyond). And they give you a solution book so you can always pretend to be smart.

    Good Luck!

    lol @ sAxsKy. I remember doing the same thing. I'd take a "peek" at the answer booklet when things just got a little too frustrating.

    I'm interested in working Kumon in the near future. I heard that you have to take a couple diagnostic tests in order to get a position. To those of you who have taken it before, what were they like? Were they easy, just stuff taught in school, or were they hard?
