Managing Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Teach for America in September 2008.

Interview Details

TFA has a long interview process, which includes multiple phone interviews, completing a task/project, and then completing multiple in-person interviews. Salaries are relatively high (in the non-profit world), but not very negotiable since the organization does a lot of internal and external benchmarking to establish salaries for each position.

A lot of focus is on fitting into their "core values"- relentless pursuit of results, respect & humility, sense of possibility, disciplined thought, & integrity. They will specifically be looking for you to demonstrate each of these qualities.

Once they select you for a position, they will court you with multiple people reaching out to try to woo you to work for the organization (don't be too enticed since that's the most personal the organization will ever be).
