I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ELS Educational Services

Interview

The center I applied at advertised that they were hiring full-time, part-time, and substitute teachers, but after an hour long phone interview, I was informed they were only hiring substitute teachers. Additionally, I was given the phone interview and then unofficially offered the subbing job. A few weeks later was asked to come in and fill out paperwork, at which time I was "officially" offered the job and told the pay rate. As others have mentioned, the pay rate for teachers is set based on education level and experience, the highest of which is about $24/hour with a Master's degree with a TESOL certificate.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of questions about working with multicultural students. How would you work with a class in which there was one Muslim woman who does not want to do group work with men, when she is the only woman in the class?

I sent a resume from a job listing (which may have been on Glassdoor). I was called very shortly afterwards for an interview. I was interviewed. They checked my references. I was hired.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ELS Educational Services in Jan 2013

Interview

They were pretty desperate when I got hired because they got a bunch of students and a teacher had just left. It is a pretty good job if you like flexibility and you don't need a big pay check. A lot of people are there because the benefits are pretty good. The bad thing is that the Academic Director is under a lot of pressure. If that person had more support it would be a better place to work.

The interview was an in person discussion of previous training and experience. It was a bit distracting because the interviewer left the office door open, and we were frequently interrupted.

Interview

Called back and forth Came in for interview A bit of a cat and mouse game - waiting for background check. She was being "'cagey"' now I see why. They really were not sure they had a job available - they are never sure. They dont know till last minute - but they dont'tell you that until the day comes and after you've moved for this job you have no job. They want to cover their classes and have teqachers jsut in case - but in reality they never know and dont'tell you that. This way they are covered if they need you but if they dont'they could not care less if they jsut tell you there is no class. Don't ever move for or leave a job for this company. In interview she asked me some grammar points, and general standard interview questions.
