    I worked at Challenger School full-time (more than 3 years)


    Pay was on the low side, but close to the market. Outstanding school, far superior to public schools. Emphasis on personal responsibility. Great parent involvement.


    Management was a little scattered.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    Met with HR first so they could do a basic interview with very generic questions--why do you want the position, what are your good qualities/strengths, etc. After that, took a couple tests to make sure I was qualified/intelligent enough to get the position. I believe there were three parts: generic math and reading test, grammar test (specific, must know terms such as compound complex sentence), and an opinion survey. Next step was to meet and interview with the principal of the desired campus. Interview was much more specific, with questions that require more thought. The last step of the interview process was to do a teaching demo for a class while the principal and teacher observed.
