Apply online, 3-4 weeks later a 30 minute phone interview, was selected to move to next phase. Next phase is a face to face meeting in Orlando where the HR team goes over the basics of working for FLVS. Then you will interview one on one with an instructional leader. Within a week you find out if you are in candidate pool and then once a job is available they can hire you.
- How can you motivate a student you do not see? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a year or more – interviewed at Florida Virtual School (Orlando, FL).
Phone interview, then large group interview at the headquarters, then an online, panel interview. I was just honest with the people. I have taught, successfully, for nearly twenty years. I am a very competent teacher who has always had very good reviews from my principals. I felt that this process was very inefficient and frustrating. The entire process took 22 months. More than a year after the initial phone and large group interview, during which time I did not hear a word from them, they called me and asked if I would be interested in an online interview two months in the future. After the two month wait and then the interview, I waited another five weeks to hear back from them. They did not select me, which is fine, but it just seemed like a very long process, and I was disappointed in what I felt was a lack of professionalism for making a potential employee wait so long for news.

I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Florida Virtual School.
There was one phone screening followed by a panel interview (4 different interviewers), and after that there was a one-on-one interview. After the final interview it took them a week to tell me that I wasn't selected. They required a business suit or a blazer for the interview. They were very professional and treated me with respect and dignity.
- It wasn't one question that was difficult to answer. There were a line of questions that sounded similar and that's what made it tricky. Answer Question

I applied online and then was called to do a phone interview. I passed the phone interview and then went to a group interview. The group interview was like an orientation/interview. I also passed this level. I am in the applicant pool. This is where I have been for the last year and a half. I'm just waiting for them to call.

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at Florida Virtual School.
Interview Steps: 1. Applied online. Within a few minutes of applying, I had an email from FVS asking me to take an online personality quiz. The questions were really easy and it they asked how you would react in a situation. 2. About 45 days later I received a call to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview took place a week later. It lasted about 30 minutes and the interviewer was very nice/professional and asked questions about how you would or have handle situations in the classroom. At the end of the call he said that he would recommend that I move to the next round, which is the R squared session at their office in Orlando on Metrocenter Blvd. Step 2.5: In between my phone interview and my R squared session, I was asked to provide a copy of my teaching certificate, along with 2 recommendation letters from current/former supervisors. 3. Attended the R squared session (about 2 weeks after the phone interview) and I had a great time. The morning consisted of introductions, excel project (make sure you know how to paste data into excel, as well as sort it and color/shade the cells), Lego "team building" exercise, and writing assignment. There were about 40 people in my session of all ages, races and taught many different types of subjects. They let you take about an hour lunch and then you reconvene for the afternoon where current employees of FVS speak to you and tell you more about being an instructor and what is expected of you. They also opened the floor up for questions and allowed our group to ask anything that we had questions about. After the session is over you will receive an email letting you know if you have been placed into the potential instructor pool or if they do not think you would be a good fit. If you are accepted into the pool, they said it could be a few months, or up to a year before you are selected for a final interview and an open position. Open positions are based on enrollment and they only hire an instructor if they have enough students to fill a class.
- Why do you want to teach specifically for FVS? Answer Question
No, the salary levels are set and there is no room for negotiation.
