    Interview

    The interview process for this position is conducted by one main interviewer, a director-level worker, and a few director-level others may stand by to listen in on the interview. The interview was not stressful but was longer than other interviews for jobs. They seem to like extremely busy people who have a lot to talk about.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about previous leadership experience and difficulties. Most questions were straight-forward.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Teach for America.

    Interview

    After completing an activity demonstrating our ability to plan and organize a typical day at the Institute, we discussed the plan I had submitted and the reasoning behind my decisions. Pretty basic. The interviewer then asked about my interest in Teach For America and my reasons for applying for the position. She asked what was one of the most challenging experiences I have encountered. Also, she asked for a time when I disagreed with a supervisor.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer was straight forward - no negotiation took place.
