    I applied online – interviewed at K12.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication from recruiter was very positive. Follow on interviews with Senior leaders was very positive - very transparent, professional, and warm. I know the company has been through recent turbulence, but I strongly believe they will overcome their challenges and continue to do great things for virtual education across the US and beyond.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from the hiring manager telling me he wanted to interview me. I had an hour-long phone call with him, then I was brought in for an in-person interview. I met with the hiring manager and his supervisor rather briefly, and was extended an offer that day. Very quick, in a good way.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at K12 in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an email stating that K12 would like to interview me for their online teacher position. It would be a phone interview with the head of the school

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was what was the last book you read. I had put on my application that I enjoy reading, which I do, but it has been awhile since I read an entire book (due to having a toddler at home) so I had to scramble to think of a title and author that sounded decent.   Answer Question

    The phone interview with the supervisors was very professional and detailed. They asked very similar questions to the interviews I've been do for brick and mortar schools.

    2 phone interviews. One screening interview and another with principal and staff member. They didn't ask any questions about teaching. Interviewer talked about himself and made jokes about how easy being an online teacher is.
