    Part-time English Instructor Interview

    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.

    ESL Teacher Interview

    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.
