    ELA/Interventionist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academies of Math and Science (Phoenix, AZ) in November 2019.

    Interview

    The seamless process was a credit to AMS. Andrew was supportive, encouraging, and helpful throughout. I believe he was truly rooting for me, genuinely kind. Annalisia was great, easy to talk to on that initial phone interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Academies of Math and Science (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2020.

    Interview

    First Zoom interview with hiring manager, then second Zoom interview with CEO. I was given a verbal and written offer immediately, which I accepted 2 days later. Then the circus began...

      First, someone from HR told me that they'd given the position to someone else. I never heard from the people I interviewed with again, which is sad because I really liked them.

    Then a few days later, the co-CEO told me that I was still being considered for the other position, which had the same job description but a higher salary. He said I could do a "trial run" at the job and see how it worked out. This seemed strange, but I was OK with it, and he told me he would get back to me by the end of the week. He never called back, and then I saw the same job that they had told me they had given to someone else posted AGAIN.

    I was so confused at this point that I wrote to the co-CEO asking for some clarification. He promptly replied that he didn't think I was a "good fit," meaning I'm difficult because I dared to ask questions, I guess. He said they have plenty of other candidates... yet they keep posting the same jobs over and over again.

    Bottom line, do not expect to be treated professionally by AMS. They don't care about people.

    I initially interviewed with a recruiter, followed by an online math exam. I then interviewed with a potential principal, which has lead to my being given a test for mathematical competency. From my understanding, this is the last step in the process.

    The interview process went like this first a Phone interview, then an in person interview.

This process was streamlined and pretty easy to follow and understand.

    Talent Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Academies of Math and Science (Tucson, AZ) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I received a terribly formatted email congratulating me on receiving an interview with AMS, which ironically requested a writing sample. My initial thought was, that’s very odd since this email looks so unprofessional - as did other emails that followed.
    The interviewer was friendly and professional and it went well. At the end of the interview she slid a 2 page test across the table and asked me to take it. The first page was full of tricky word problems, like you would find on one of those brain teaser websites. The second page was a paragraph of text to proofread.
    I find that first page of riddles completely inappropriate and unnecessary as an assessment for the position I was applying for.
    I wasn’t trying to get into a gifted student program, but apparently I was tested for one.
