Interview Details

For the interview you need to do a basic math and reading test and prepare a small lesson. It is not a very long process and I got hired that same day. Since they have such a high turnover rate, they are desperate for employees. They do a background check and training begins soon after you are hired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at THINK Together in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied 2 weeks before I received a notification about a pre-employment test. Pre-employment tests are on-site in their office and you take it with a few other people. The test is multiple choice with some spelling, math, and grammar. Since I passed, they set me up with an interview 2 days later. The interview isn't bad at all. They tell you beforehand to prepare a mock lesson plan for any grade level. The interviewers will respond like the grade you are directing your presentation to. Before the presentation, they ask you a handful of questions.

     They asked me what is a negative experience that I turned positive, previous experiences working with kids, and very few scenario questions, but I heard that some folks were given many scenario questions. Overall, interview was a breeze so don't fret, just prepare for your mock presentation and read the interview questions on GlassDoor!

    They said that my only weakness was that I didn't have classroom experience, but the worker told me that that I can be trained on. So don't be intimidated if you like working with kids but have no classroom experience!

    Interview Details

    I applied through the internet. After about 2 weeks, I got sent an email to go take a pre-employment test. Test was super easy, I received about a 93%. Basic english and math questions (area, percentages, division, etc). Then, they asked when I would like an interview.

    A few weeks later I got the interview. It was super quick. They asked me about 8 questions. Then I presented my mini-lesson plan to the interviewers. After I was done, they sent me to wait in the lobby. Then, got hired on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at THINK Together.

    Interview Details

    I was called the next day after submitting my job application to come in and take a pre-assessment test. It was on math, English, and spelling. They called me a couple days later and told me that I passed. Then I was called to have an interview. I came in, and there were at least eight other people waiting to be interviewed as well. I was called in and interviewed by three people. They asked routine questions about why I wanted to work there and experiences that I've had. Then I was to do a classroom mock presentation as if I was talking to a classroom full of kids. I had to prepare a lecture/presentation and present it to the interviewers. After I was done, I was notified that they liked me and wanted to offer me the job. I accepted! Then they did a background check and fingerprinting right in their office. When it cleared, they scheduled me for orientation and training. Overall quick process.

    Interview Questions
    • "If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?"
      I feel so narcissistic answering this question because they could be judging your answer! You don't want to compliment yourself to death, so you have to be humble as well.

      "What is your greatest weakness?"

      I feel like this is a trick question. Should I tell them or not tell them? What if I don't get hired because my weakness is being a procrastinator?!

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. You start as a SUB PL, until you're needed permanently.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at THINK Together in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    First step was to apply online. Application includes the basics but also open ended questions where you can provide a lengthy answer.

    A week after I had a short phone interview which consisted of questions such as: why do I want to work with kids, what is the best aspect about working with kids, my experience with large groups of children, what makes me qualified. Simple questions.

    Next step was to go take a Math, English, & Spelling test. The spelling portion was 8 words One of the employees would say a word, use it in a sentence, and then we had to write in down. They were easy words such as "ridiculous, accept, library"... The rest of test is 39 questions which were math & English. The math portion had adding, subtracting, multiplying, percents, word problems, find perimeters, areas. English consisted of putting sentences together and finding which word best fits into each sentence.

    After you turn in the test, you wait about 5-10 mins. Next, an employee takes you to the back and lets you know if you passed or failed. I passed, then we picked a date for my interview.
    My interview was 2 days after & she let me know that I have to present a lesson plan.

    For my interview, I had to site coordinators interview me. They were very friendly and made jokes frequently so I felt comfortable. The male would ask me questions while the female wrote down my answers. Question topics: what brought me here, explain my experience with kids, how would I handle an injured child while 20 kids are out playing under my supervision, how would I manage the classroom and discipline, how would I foster emotional development, how would I teach a mixed class where some students are more advanced then others, and my methods of handling a disruptive student that is not behaving.

    Then they had me present my lesson. I created a learning game, which I had the male come up to the front and volunteer to play. I made sure to pretend I was speaking to the "audience, my students" as well as have the male volunteer speak to them because those are his "classmates". It was very engaging, I made lots of eye contact, insisted they participate. I brought props, 2 game boards so they could play at "their pretend student desk". My game was fun, colorful and targeted at a young age/ low grade level because that way its an easy lesson to teach. Not even 5 minutes into it, they stopped me & said it was wonderful, well done. Asked if I had any questions, then sent me to wait in the lobby.

    Five minutes later HR calls me and tells me the interviewers were very pleased and offered me a position.

    Interview Questions
    • I cant remember the exact wording, but they asked how I would manage my classroom and how I would manage the discipline of students so that the environment encompasses learning and nurturing. Something along those lines.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at THINK Together in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application through their website and within a week was called to do a test. Super easy - spelling and basic reading as well as math. Then they schedule you for an interview where you will present a small lesson. They will interview you first then let you do your lesson plan - or the other way around - it just all depends. People who are interviewing you are site coordinators - so be ready for specific questions.
