    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Florida Virtual School.

    Interview

    Without saying exactly what they were, the questions fair to wth are you talking about? They were on a speaker phone and the SQL expert asked me "regarding SQL version 2008 and above, name two tables that are not permanent in #}%%^^**. Huh ? I've used SQL everyday since 2005 and I don't know what she was talking about. I

    The guys questions were valid but I forgot what the data element is in HTML 5 is but I've used it just once in the last six months. I walked away from the interview thinking they were inexperienced because the questions gave them no clue as to how good I am. I'd rather have the experience of building companies like I have than being able to memorize everything in the stack.

    Interview Questions

    • The easiest question. What is the data element in html5?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Florida Virtual School in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process is lengthy. First apply, then wait until they call for a phone interview. Pass phone interview, then take online assessment of technology skills. Pass this, then you are called for a group interview. At the group interview, we listened to a brief company spiel, worked in teams to answer questions, and worked in teams to build an incomplete Lego set. Then, a video was played while we waited to have our individual interview. I had to wait until second to last. By that time, my two interviewers seemed impatient and not really focused on my responses. They were sharing something on their laptops and nonverbally communicating together while I was answering their questions. I felt it was quite disrespectful. I was told I would be contacted within 7-10 days with a decision either way. After a month of waiting, I finally called and spoke to them and discovered I was not selected. After all the run around and disrespect, I wasn't too upset. I want a reliable employer who does what they say they'll do and one who is considerate to its employees.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Basic phone interview first. A few months later I was contacted for an in-person interview. Drove a bit of a distance for an interview done via computer. Not sure why I couldn't have done the interview at home via my own computer.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty basic questions -- nothing out of the ordinary. Tell me about your background in education. What makes you an effective teacher? How do you reach struggling students? How do you use data to drive your teaching? How have you used technology in the classroom? Be sure to have specific examples ready. If you have teaching experience, this interview should not be too difficult for you.   Answer Question

    FLVS Instructor Interview

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Florida Virtual School in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very long, drawn out process. Took months for them to call, then they called and left an automatic recording for me to set up a time for the next step. It actually took me over a month to finally reach someone. It went to the manager's voicemail every time. I left messages and never received a response.

    Finally, I reached her and she made my appointment for another 2 months out.

    Went to the appointment with 10 other teachers and was not selected.
