    Lead Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brightside Academy (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Very quick and brief. Because (and shortly after being hired and starting) you quickly learn that they're just beyond desperate for staff.
    So much of the staff doesn't even have a background working with children. At all!!! (other than their own)

    Interview Questions

    • Background.
      When's the soonest you can start?
      Why do you want to work with Children?

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brightside Academy (Bronx, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional and concise. I first phone interviewed with the center's recruiter where it took 15 minutes and then after he scheduled me for a in person interview to meet with the academy director and it went really well. She was very bubbly and sweet and pretty much hired me on the spot! Now all I'm doing is going through the fingerprinting process and should start work in a month!
