    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac.

    Interview

    Half day interview at a neutral site, at hotel in my case. Other applicants were present for the teaching demonstration portion, which was less than a 5 minute demonstration of your teaching style in a classroom. There was a more lengthy individual interview with the recruiter, who was also a former ALT in Japan.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Overall the interview seemed to go well. The conversation had a good flow, and I was prepared for all the questions and even the tiny ones about the company. But in the end, I didn't end up getting the job. I think it might have been because I was too young?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied online, Interac called me and talked to me, went to Washington DC to interview and do a demonstration lesson in front of a camera and other applicants. The interview was not particularly challenging I don't really remember the questions. Afterwards I was emailed saying I was accepted. Much better experience than my previous experience trying to get hired teaching in Japan.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    After the phone interview I got invited to the in-person interview. They are there to help you get the job, but you still need to be prepared and professional. There is a demo lesson you must give, also a grammar and personality test. Brush up on the prime minister of Japan.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Interac (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very long process. Was there from 8 am to 5 pm. I was in a group of 8 people and we were given information for the job as if we were already employed. We also did a recorded demo lesson, each person taking about 30-40 minutes (with questions) as well as a one-on-one interview at the very end.

    ALT Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Interac (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Relatively easy proccess, i think i interviewed rather well though so that may have had an impact on its easy feel. Most intense part was the in person interview in which you interview with about 5 other applicants. My advice is make friends with them and stay in contact. Its probable that if you made it that far they want you in the first place.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac.

    Interview

    Skype interview, lots of paperwork and submitted a really specific and intense video I had to take of me teaching. Then there was training in Tokyo that still counted as an interview they said but I think everyone still got hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interac.

    Interview

    The process is very straightforward and easy, in my opinion.
    -Phone interview with typical interview questions.
    -Interview seminar in a major city near you. Group of interviewees and yourself learn more about the company, do a demo lesson (nothing to sweat over just a short warm up activity), and one final interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Interac (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online by submitting education information and attached a personal statement and resume. The following day I received a phone call from Sarah at Interac. She asked me some basic questions if I was alright if I was asked to drive, if i was placed in a rural area, and if i would be alright if I wasn't placed in the same city as my partner. She then asked when I would be available for a phone interview. The following phone interview quizzed me on information related to the information packet emailed to me a week earlier. She asked why Japan, why interac, and what would be my biggest challenge moving to Japan.
