    Pros

    Culture is awesome! Everyone is really driven and goal oriented, but also very friendly and supportive. Leadership strives for everyone to excel at what they do, but makes sure we do it in a positive way. Company is also very open about where they are, and where they're headed. Benefits are ok (medical, dental, vision, 401k, wellness).

    Cons

    Sometimes work is hard, and requires extra time and effort. If you aren't growing with the company, there's a sense that you can be cut from the team at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep striving for an open environment. In the past, some strategic and personnel decisions were kept private, which makes people nervous.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at TakeLessons.

    Interview Details

    Fill out an online form - have two phone interviews, pass a background check. Easy (although not really thorough). The whole interview questions were pretty standard for teaching, but there was no talk of having to submit a video of you teaching or an inperson demonstration. I have been teaching for 10+ years and found it odd that a telemarketing company based in San Diego wouldnt require any sort of quality control when it comes to the ability of instructors.

    Interview Questions
    • Having to pay for your own background check. They are also really big on wanting your financial info before agreeing to a salary   Answer Question
