    Teacher, Elementary School Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ascend Public Charter Schools (New York, NY) in February 2019.

    Interview

    A lot of back and forth to set-up a phone call. The interview itself wasn't very challenging and lasted only for about 20-30 minutes.
    My fiance' applied for a position as did I. I am actually not a fan of charter schools but applied out of curiosity. I believe they only want to higher newly qualified teachers who they can exploit to work longer hours. In my experience charters, schools know they can exploit newly qualified teachers because teachers are in desperate need to gain experience. This needs to stop. As you can see from the reviews of the workers online.. the people at this school are clearly expected to work long-past the official working hours with lots of crazy demands. I am a teacher with 7 years of experience and a masters degree in education and my fiance' nearly has a doctorate in education.. The fact that we didn't even get to the second round pretty much indicates they aren't looking for the best teachers but ones they can mold. This charter school BS needs to come to an end. It is destroying education in our country.

    Great Process. They did a telephone interview first and then in person. Everyone was so polite and open, I loved the process. The people I meant with were very open and professional. They truly wanted to know about me as a teacher and eased the tension with my face to face with their kind attitude.

    Interview

    Hiring manager reached out via email with a link to schedule a phone screen. I was placed on speaker during the phone screen which made it hard to hear the questions clearly. I was told by the hiring manager she needed to multi-task and no one else was in the room... Towards the end of the call, I was told I would receive a follow-up within the next three business day which would let me know if I moved on to next stage. Based on the details given during the call, the overall process is long and drawn out because they inexperienced in HR.
