    Elementary Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Charter Schools USA in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was pleased as the interview began, however a bit rush, combined with fluff. I, an experienced educator, was floored when I heard what my salary was going to be like. The administrators who interviewed me where trying to convinced me to take the position due to "kids first" and how he knew my heart was for the kids....blah, blah, blah....I regardless of my red flags took the position. I was blinded by all the great innovations at this particular school.
    Now that I am teaching there, am and the rest of my colleagues are able to see the REAL face of this corporation. I and the rest of my wonderful friends are working our tails off, for less. And yes we love our students, however we need to be compensated with more, or least match what our demands are!!!
    These demands were not discussed in my interview because it was hidden behind the fluff and lies.
    If you are here reading this and you are not working for this company yet, please, please runnnnnn! I am here reading everyone else's cry and I should kick myself because I should have done this research prior to accepting my position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Charter Schools USA in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took a few days, I applied online and received a call to come in the following day for an interview. I was interviewed by the Assistant Principal first and asked very run of the mill questions about my resume. "How would you incorporate centers into the classroom, what are your strengths as a teacher, explain how you would differentiate this content to a diverse classroom."
    After speaking with her for about 2 minutes, I was then pushed along to the Principal who asked me most of the same questions with more emphasis on tracking student growth and learning gains.
    The interview was very conversational based, both ladies were pleasant and chatty and really seemed to enjoy speaking with me.
    I was offered a position on the spot along with my starting salary and benefit information.

    Interview Details

    Went through a few rounds of interviews. They were all pleasant and not too formal or scary. The principal was nice and asked questions relevant to the position; nothing out of line or impertinent. The entire process took about four weeks for an offer to be made. The process is definitely much easier than the Broward County School District (lots of beaurocracy, paper-work, and interviews.
