    FLVS Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Florida Virtual School (Orlando, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First a phone interview is conducted. If the applicant passes this, then they are asked to complete an online module to show their technology skills. Next, they are asked to come in person to the Orlando office for a presentation and one-on-one meeting with an Instructional Leader (principal basically). The one I attended was from 9-1 and it was required to wear either a suit or blazer. "Business casual is not acceptable."

    The presentation went well. However, the IL were in the back sitting behind me and talked throughout the presentation--- somewhat distracting. When it was time for the one on one interviews, we all waited in the room and basically just sat until we were called. There were 12 of us and only 2 IL's interviewing. I waited for quite some time, as I was the second to last one called to be interviewed.

    We were told that if we decided to take this position, we were not allowed to have part time work (including coaching) for the first year. We were also required to resign from any school where we currently worked.

    Basic questions were asked about use of technology, use of data, etc. At the end of the interview, it was asked If I had any questions. I definitely did as this would be a huge commitment, and big change of pace from my brick and mortar position. After asking three questions, I was told that I could only ask one more question. I hadn't spent more than 20 minutes at this point, if that. This was around 11:45, and we were told to plan on being there until 1. I am not sure why I was cut short other than perhaps the questions I was asking. I view interviews as a two way street...I want to find out as much about the company, as they do about me. I asked about support during the transitioning period of learning to work from home...I asked about teacher turn over rates...I asked about employee surveys and their expressed pros and cons to the job, etc. Maybe these questions made them uncomfortable.

    They obviously do not value your time, as I drove more than 2 hours one way for this interview. If they don't value you enough to answer your questions about the position, or give true insight into the position, so that you can make an informed decision, they won't value you as an employee. Period.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you use technology in the classroom? How do you use data to drive instruction? How would you manage a work/life balance? What sets you apart from the other candidates?   Answer Question

    Teacher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a year or more. I interviewed at Florida Virtual School (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Phone interview, then large group interview at the headquarters, then an online, panel interview.
    I was just honest with the people. I have taught, successfully, for nearly twenty years. I am a very competent teacher who has always had very good reviews from my principals. I felt that this process was very inefficient and frustrating. The entire process took 22 months. More than a year after the initial phone and large group interview, during which time I did not hear a word from them, they called me and asked if I would be interested in an online interview two months in the future. After the two month wait and then the interview, I waited another five weeks to hear back from them. They did not select me, which is fine, but it just seemed like a very long process, and I was disappointed in what I felt was a lack of professionalism for making a potential employee wait so long for news.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic: experience, how would you use technology, how have you helped students, etc.   Answer Question
