    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Chungdahm Learning (Chicago, IL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview is very standard. The initial interview is over the phone. They asked questions like describe the difference between stare and glare. After you are hired it really comes down to you and accepting a contract. Dont feel like you have to accept the first contract that is sent to you. You can wait to for one in a specific city or area. You can also decline a contract based on the age of students.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Chungdahm Learning (Seoul (South Korea)).

    Interview

    The phone interview is a joke. Once you get to the 'training' they spend the entire week trying to psych you out with materials you never end up using. Overall a waste of time and stress. If you don't pass the 'training' then you don't get your plane ticket reimbursed but the entire thing is completely subjective.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    For negotiations, I was lied to and told that my pay rate would be based on my 'training results'. The training is a pass/fail and there are no other evaluations.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chungdahm Learning (Seoul (South Korea)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The training is not all too difficult. You will need to follow instructions very carefully during the week of your training and be sure to take notes during each seminar. The training is essentially an unpaid informational that you will need to sit through for the next 5 days and put up with LONG hours. Get through the initial hiring process, and you'll be sure to have a cushy job at the end.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chungdahm Learning in July 2010.

    Interview

    1) Applied to a position online.
    2) Received an e-mail to arrange a phone interview.
    3) Phone interview-- asked to describe the difference between "glare" and "stare" to a young student.
    4) One week training session-- Company presentation. Given training materials for the class(es) you will be teaching once placed in location. Training consists of an initial series of very short tests based on information provided online. Then you will watch and perform "mock" teaching sessions in a group setting with a trainer. Then you must pass a short test, filling in the blank sections of a classroom teaching structure, which is provided in your training material. Pretty straight forward.
    5) If you pass everything, you're hired and placed into your location!

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the difference between "glare" and "stare" to a fifth grade student.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is a brief negotiation stage before your sign the contract. There is room to negotiate the amount of payment, but it's difficult to increase pay more than $1/hour, if at all. I didn't negotiate because I thought the amount stipulated in the contract was fair.
