    I applied online. I interviewed at ELS Educational Services in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through indeed and was contacted right away. The interviewer was very nice and the questions were not "trick" questions. Most of the questions were typical questions like what are your strengths and tell us about a difficult situation with a peer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    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?   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at ELS Educational Services.

    The first interview is on the phone. They ask you basic questions about yourself and the position you're applying for.
    The second interview is in person and they ask more specific questions. They also give you about 5 situations and you have to explain how you would react and why you would react that way.

    Interview Questions

    • During the second interview:
      - What are some area you would like to improve in?
      - What makes you a unique candidate?
      - What would you do if a student asked you to drive him/her to the bank?   1 Answer

    Interview

    Pretty standard. Met with just one district director and also met the center staff. The entire process was somewhat quick and it was nice that they paid for relocation expenses.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ELS Educational Services in December 2014.

    Interview

    It was short and fast. I think they may have been desperate to replace someone that had recently left. I recieved an email later that day offering me a substitute position, and I filled in for the teacher that had left for the remainder of the month. I was teaching my own classes within two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Something along the lines of 'What kind of classroom environment do you strive for' and 'What is one area of weakness in your work abilities?'   Answer Question

    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. The interview was thorough. They asked a lot of questions about my teaching experience. They really seemed to want an experienced teacher.
