    Basic interview process where they ask about your experience including specific examples of good & bad scenarios in teaching & how you dealt with them. You also receive a mini grammar test that's a few short pages. There are some short answer questions on this test along with multiple choice. They want to gage how strong you are in the grammar department as you teach a lot of it with adult students.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EF Education First in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and heard back that same day with a next day phone interview. The interview lasted 45 minutes. I think I answered about 10 questions, and they were very difficult. I had a positive experience however at the end the woman was bothered by my lack of sales experience even though I had so many other incredible past experiences that made me qualified for an entry level position. Get ready for very hard, and non-traditional phone interview questions. Look below for examples

    ESL Teacher Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EF Education First (Kalamazoo, MI).

    Interview

    Quick and easy, a bit awkward for second interview. I ended up not applying because of family matters. I am thinking of reapplying though. It was quick and simple. The reason why the second interview was awkward was because it was on Skype and the gentleman I was interviewing with didn't have the video set-up for himself but mine was. I felt more vulnerable to this than other Skype interviews.
