    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Berlitz (Miami, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Minimal phone screening and an in person interview. Interview happened at the designated time. I was presented an offer and the details about the training and hiring process. They said that after 40 hours of unpaid training they will then decide who was the right candidate. The offer I was given was of $ 13.50 the hour. I thought the offer was ridiculous and wrote an email giving feedback to the girl who interviewed me. The email I wrote is at the end of my comments here. Check it out.

    Part-time English Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Berlitz (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was at the Philadelphia branch with the "Client Relations Specialist."

     I was offered an interview via email for a "part-time" position. When I explained that I have other part-time work, so I would have to know ahead of time which hours are being offered, I was told 'This is a part-time job based on enrollment. We cannot predict your work schedule. Best of luck on your job search.''

    Wait a minute. This is a part-time job but you expect me to have full-time availability at your whim and refuse to disclose what hours you want me to work? On top of it, you are punish-withdrawing your interview offer because I asked about hours?

    I am pretty sure the "Client Relations Specialist" is not holding up to her title.

    More like a casual relaxed conversation in a relaxed atmosphere, just to make sure that I can teach and use a computer and the Internet. A training followed the interview. Then I had to give demo.

    ESL Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Berlitz (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Met with center director. Was told history of company, and current business outline. Two weeks ( 20 hours a week) unpaid online training prior to a teaching audition. Was told there was no set schedule for classes, at students discretion. Overall I was made to understand the difference between a business English school and an Academic English school.

    Interview Questions

    • "Where do you see yourself in a year? Five years?" " . . .describe a time a student was critical of your teaching and how you handled it."   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt the beginning pay was insufficient to justify two weeks of unpaid training and testing. Also there was not enough hours being offered, nor any type of set schedule.
