    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Teach for America.

    Interview Details

    Disliked phone interview, interrogation style. Final, in person interview was filled with group activities. I enjoyed the micro teach, but the group work was chaotic. There were about 15 people interviewing and everyone was trying to talk over one another. After I got the offer, I literally was called three times a day. They can be incredibly aggressive and this attitude ultimately made me not accept the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Phone interview: Asked extreme detail about of my previous jobs. A lot of how I felt and why I reacted that way.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Incredibly aggressive recruitment technique. I did not feel respected and got some bad vibes.
