    I worked at University of the Pacific

    Pros

    This was a very good first job especially for aspiring teachers. You get thrown into creating lesson plans and leading a class of students in various engaging activities (I got hired after the school year started and unfortunately missed out on the training offered before the school year started). The program has certain guidelines to follow but the rest of your lesson plan can be quite flexible. As long as the students are learning and engaged in the activity planned out for them, it's a good indicator that you're doing well. Management has a good open-door policy if you need assistance.

    Cons

    Unless you wish to pursue a career in teaching/education/working with children, you may struggle as you're doing your best to lead a class and/or feel that you're wasting your time. You will definitely feel discouraged. Don't be. Do your best to stick it out for the school year. There will be a lot of personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the staff members who struggle more than others, giving more words of encouragement can be helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of the Pacific in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    There are two interviews, one with a faculty member and one with a student. There is also a writing portion and a tour of the campus.

    The questions seemed were very typical. They seemed to be picking a few from a list they had.

    The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The school presented itself in a very warm manner as opposed to a colder and dry approach that is expected in the professional world.
