    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Citizen Schools.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two phone interviews and then a final in-person interview. Before the in-person interview, they asked me to complete a project. The project was relevant to the job and useful in that sense, but it was a fair amount of work.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    This organization has a multi-stage hiring process. I started with a phone interview with a member of HR. I then had a Skype interview with the hiring manager and HR. Prior to the Skype session I was administered a task assignment (Job Specific Assignment/JSA) and required to turn in a document demonstrating my plan and deliverable to fulfill the prompt. We discussed the deliverable in the interview. I had a follow-up call from HR after the Skype interview. I then had an actual in-person meeting with the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Citizen Schools.

    Interview

    Applied online. Within four weeks I was given a Skype interview with two employees.
    However, within about a week of receiving an offer, they were looking for a commitment. This was difficult considering it is an unpaid internship and was also early in the season (January). They were nice but a little pushy about getting a commitment.

    Teaching Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citizen Schools (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick and easy. However I would have been placed at a school in Harlem which is almost 2 overs from my apartment in Brooklyn. This would mean 13 hour days for me, which is not an option. I also came to this decision because the school has a reputation for poor student behavior and the company doesn't seem to offer much training upon starting.

    Long online application that consisted of multiple scenario questions and short essay questions about interest in the program. Afterwards, a phone call interview takes place in which a TAC asks simple experience/interest questions. A lot is based on their mission statement and how you will possibly fulfill it. She asked questions such as "What is an example of a time you were in a leadership position". A one on one with the director follows.
