    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at The Teaching Company (Chantilly, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by TTC via email. I was informed that they had come across my application for Video Editor and they were offering me an interview for this position. I was scheduled for an interview the same week that they emailed me. They sent an amazing set of directions, and it was a breeze to find their office. Everyone was helpful and friendly, my interview was relaxed and informative. It's easy to get a great sense of what the company's all about. They answered all the questions I had. It was great! I absolutely ended up taking the job.

    Sat with a veteran employee for 30 minutes to see what the role entails.Panel interview with Manager and Supervisor- this lasted about 45 minutes. I then sat with a team lead for 30 minutes and got to ask any questions I wanted to- this was wonderful! This part was just for me.. The interview was very detailed and professional, but very easy because the manager and supervisor seemed to be good people. Benefits and salary are robust! GREAT company to join!

    Analytics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at The Teaching Company in October 2014.

    Interview

    First had a 45 minute phone interview with the hiring manager- thought it went quite well. Went in for an in-person interview a month later and the hiring manager had left the company. From the moment I got there, I did not have a good feeling about the place at all. Not a single person I ran into looked happy or cheerful.. the place looked beaten down and gloomy. The people I interviewed with did not seem to be interested in talking to me.. they barely had any questions for me and kept asking me what questions I had for them. It was a complete waste of my time and energy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Teaching Company.

    Interview

    Very long day, multiple interviewers, no lunch, no breaks; interviewed in groups and individually and pairs across multiple sections. everyone was nice, thoughtful, smart. it was clear that everyone was passionate about their work; passion for the product is one of the strengths of the workers (not the executive team, however)

    Customer Care Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Teaching Company (Chantilly, VA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    After multiple phone interviews with the recruiter I was passed along as a candidate. Then I got a phone call and an e-mail from HR telling me I had to access a website to take a test to assess my compatibility to work within their environment. No problem.

    I took the "predictive skills indicator" as requested and then didn't hear anything.

    When I reached out to the recruiter he indicated my lack of int'l experience disqualified me for the position. Nothing in the posting about int'l and now, a month later, the posting still doesn't have anything about int'l experience.
