English Instructor Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at YBM Education in April 2012.
Interview Details – Responded to an ad placed on Dave's ESL Cafe, and sent in the documents needed for visa issuance. Documents were sent to the academic supervisor of the branch I had specified in my email submission, and the supervisor contacted me by email two days later to make arrangements for my telephone interview. The interview was about 45 minutes long and ranged from teaching-related questions to questions about personal habits and living abroad.
