    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview 1: The recruiter was very helpful. She gave me advice for ways to prepare for the second interview. She explained the job, school, salary, and benefits. Within a week I received a call from the principal with an invitation to come in for an interview. Interview 2: The principal and one dean met with me. They were pleasant and thorough. I sensed an immediate rapport with both of them. Within a week I received an email inviting me back for a brief meeting with other faculty. Interview 3: I was placed in a room with several other people, who I assumed were faculty. They were applicants for other positions at the school. I was called back to a different room and met with two specials teachers. The interview lastest about ten minutes and I was cut off in the middle of my answer because another applicant was ready to come in. As I was leaving I spoke briefly to the principal, who said there was one more step in the process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies.

    Interview

    First impression of student behavior in hallways was very good leading me to expect the same within the individual classrooms. Unfortunately, as I toured the school, I could hear teachers screaming at their students and saw kids in the classrooms running around. It looked like very little learning was being accomplished. After my tour, I almost did not want to interview for the position but changed my mind.

    Interview Questions

    • I was expected to know items specific to the area that the school was servicing. Since I am not from the Detroit area, I did not know that the school was within close proximity to some projects.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate. I was offered 39000 the first year and another offer for 40000 the second year.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies (Dayton, OH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    20 minutes max, the Principal and another teacher. My resume was reviewed, and a few questions were asked. I did not teach a lesson, and was not given a tour of the school or anything. Afterwards, I got a call from an NHA recruiter. She asked me a few more questions, and then told me my starting salary. Negotiate! I said I would not take less than a certain amount, and got a 4,000 increase. She called me back after "confirming" she could offer me that. When she did, I accepted. I then did a background and drug test and a few days later got an email saying they were excited to have me as part of the staff. I never signed a contract.
