    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kelly Services (Tampa, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Very simple. Typical HR questions. I think she asked me like two questions. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Why did you want to become a sub? They also had a 3 hour training session that was actually informative.

    They expect you to pay $95 for your own background check. Really guys?

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. 8.50 for AA, 9.75 for college, 11.25 for 5+ years experience and certified as a teacher.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kelly Services (South Burlington, VT) in February 2014.

    Interview

    This happened more than a year ago so I do not remember the specifics, I do remember it was by far the easiest interview I have ever had. First I made a phone call to the office. She said get these documents and come in on this day. She said the documents were fine, come in for an interview on this day. So I did, and we had a very casual interview. It was more like a date than an interview, I remember talking about my hobbies. I don't remember a single difficult question such as "what is your greatest accomplishment? what is your teaching style?" nothing like that. It was more like, are you ok waking up early in the morning? You do not even need a BA to get a job as a substitute with Kelly I believe. And keep in mind this company hires most of the substitutes in the country...

    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clarksville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kelly Services (Clarksville, TN).

    Interview

    Starts with an email to Kelly Services followed by an in-person interview. The interview and initial paperwork will take at least one hour. If that goes well, fingerprints are checked (at the employee's expense) and background checks are conducted. If those are good, you attend orientation session where you learn Kelly Svcs, school system, and how to find vacancies in the system. Very shortly thereafter you start in the classroom.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected or difficult. The usual "Why do you want to be a substitute teacher?" There is some discussion of state and local school system policies. I suspect that is to gauge your response or feelings about them (1) if you never taught school before or (2) if you taught school, to inform you of local policies.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. There is a set schedule that includes: an hourly wage for teacher aides (no degree required), a set rate per day for a degreed candidate (any degree- a higher degree does not equal more pay), and a set rate for a candidate with a current in-state educator license (an out-of-state license does not count but there is a process to obtain a current state license).
