Altia Central Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
ALT Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Altia Central.
Interview Details – A CV sent via emailed, followed by the recruiting manager replying fairly quickly. An interview was scheduled domestically quickly, but no travel expenses (20,000+) were provided for it. There was a lot of time that passed between that and finally being offered the job, followed by another large blank of communication when I was suddenly told that there's training on the go.

Assistant Language Teacher Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Altia Central in September 2009.
Interview Details – Initial communication conducted via friend who worked for the company. As with most jobs, it is good to have someone who can make the introduction. Made contact with the company and found out that I had a friendship with one of the managers who went to the same high school as me in my home country. From there the interview process consisted of having a bbq at his house.
