    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Union, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ESS (Union, NJ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It is actually call the training. It takes place in a class/discussion room, where maybe 10 to 15 total applicants sit around and interact with the "trainer," so it can be considered as more of a group interview. The trainer gives us a number of dos and don'ts about being a substitute teacher, basic guidelines when in the classroom and the school/workplace, how to go about the rest of the process moving forward.

    Interview Questions

    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Interview process is very easy. As long as you get accepted as a candidate, you don't even have to interview anymore. They call it a "group interview" but it's more like an information session with a group of anywhere between 10-50 people. After you fill out all the proper paperwork, get your background check, and pay the fees, you have to attend a full-day seminar where they teach you classroom management. If you're already a certified teacher, much of it is already known. In fact, if you are already a certified teacher, they occasionally have half-day seminars. After the seminar, you're an employee and you work when you want, and you remain an employee as long as you work at least 4 days a month. You select which districts and schools you want to work. The districts pay anywhere from $70 to $105 per day, depending on your certification.

    Interview Questions

    • During the seminar, they ask the group about different scenarios one might come across in a classroom. Most of it is common sense, especially if you're a certified teacher and have had education classes in college.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. The different school districts already have their daily salaries set.
