    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Kaplan Higher Education in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process involved doing a "mock teach" where I was expected to teach on a subject of my choosing for 20 minutes. The "students" were other employees who were available to sit in on the process. They were courteous and attentive. Because of the amount of prior experience that I had, the interview process was not very extensive.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Kaplan Higher Education in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a panel to get a feel of my qualifications for the position and then I was asked to do a practice teaching session to show that I was able to teach. I thought the panel was professional and they were sincerely involved in the process and committed to the policies and procedures of the organization. Simply put they were dedicated educators.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kaplan Higher Education in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    There was One on One interviews with the Program Chair, Director of Education and Executive Director. After that there is a mock teach where given a subject you have to come up with a 5 minute presentation. In that time you will explain the subject to a room of staff as you would be a class of students. At that point they choose to hire but contingent upon passing an online instructor training that is provided.

    You must complete 3 observations before you can teach but these observations can occur the same day by spending 1 hour each in three concurring classes.

    No negotiation. They barely let me know that Ii was hired and what the salary was. What you will need to considered is what you teach and when/how often the class occurs.
