    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Connections Academy in January 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with an administrator and a group of teachers. The entire interview was very positive, often with comments like, "I really like your answer" and "thank you for sharing that with us." I was told they hired someone else because they could fill two positions they needed; but that, they wanted to hire me as soon as a few more students enrolled. I only heard from them, when I followed up with them; and was told corporate still hadn't opened up any other positions. Next, I had an in person interview with the same administrator and another group of teachers. I was asked the same list of questions and received similar responses as I had the first time. I was told they still had four more days of interviewing to do; then, they would let me know what they decided. I never heard from them again. Afterwards, I read several reviews from others who had a very similar experience, including not hearing from them after they were told they'd be contacted with their decision.
