    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Goddard School (Orange, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The assistant director greeted me promptly and introduced me to the office staff. The interview was held in a tiny office shared by two office workers and the assistant director. Throughout our meeting there were people coming and going. Parents were coming in and needed to be let into the building and teachers were stopping by. In addition, my interviewer was answering phones. While they were friendly, I felt unimportant to the process and found it difficult to maintain focus on our conversation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at The Goddard School (Middletown, NJ).

    Interview

    I applied at The Goddard School for the assistant teacher position and it was probably one of the worst interviews I ever had. When I got there I was greeted by the director who had already been talking on the phone. It wasn't about business because I over heard the conversation since the door was open. My interview was supposed to start at 1030 and it didn't start until 11. When it was finally time to interview, the staff kept walking in and out of the office asking the director questions, the hone kept ringing and she ALWAYS answered it, even her cell phone.

    I was probably interrupted more than 10 times. She had to keep starting over, and still got interrupted. She wasn't paying any attention to me. She even left the office once and it wasn't to take care of a situation in a classroom either.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Goddard School.

    Interview

    I began my interview at one location for a lead teacher position. Midway through the interview she called another location to ask if they were still hiring for kindergarten. I left and went to the other location to finish the interview and was given a tour of the school. Questions were well thought out and directly related to the education field. I applied online but didn't fill out an application till I was there. No one looked over it before the interview. Also, they do not require a teacher's certificate. There was never a background or criminal history check or drug screening discussed at the time of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • If you could write a children's book about yourself, what would it be titled?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There were no negotiations. I have accepted the offer, but am struggling to see how I can make this work realistically. Less than $2000 after taxes without a benefit package.... Not realistic in my book.
