    Interview

    Very long. Interviewed 2x in-person and it took 2 months for HR rep to call me, only to ask if I could come in one more time for an interview. Unfortunately for them, I had already moved on with another job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at K12.

    Interview

    I was initially sent an email to see if I was still interested and if I would like them to send me a test followed by virtual interview. As I was, I replied that I would like to an hour later.

    The HR corresponded responded to me a week later with the test. The 'test' was incredibly easy. All I had to do was follow a component tutorial in Figma and make an instance of it, give file access to a couple people, then send an email with answers to a couple questions.

    I did that in 15-30minutes on the same day as I received the email. I had no response so I followed up 3 times in the following two week. twice with the HR correspondent and once with the official careers email. I have still not heard anything back.

    TLDR; Very tardy responses, embarrassingly easy test, got ghosted

    Interview Questions

    • Did you experience any difficulties setting up the component? If so, what were they?

      What are some benefits to using master components and instances in a design file?   Answer Question

    Enrollment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at K12 (Denver, CO) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I was sent an email about 5 days after applying online. The email requested I engage in HireVue which is a digital interview website. Questions appear on the page and you respond to them. You are given time to think between questions. There were about 7 of them and not all were recorded video. You were given 2 opportunities to record yourself for each verbally answered question. I have done HireVue interviews before and I always try to look my best, speak in to the camera, and share my background to the best of my ability. I think people need to remember that when interviewing in this capacity.

    About 2 days after I submitted my video I was sent another HireVue, with "Recommended for Hire" in the title. I followed the link and had the option of accepting or declining. However, no other information was given about the role, pay, or hours. About 2 days after accepting the offer, I received an email with all of the information listed. I did speak on the phone with the recruiter. She was very polite, answered my questions about the role and company, and what to expect. Even with the poor reviews, I feel accepting this position is the right choice and hope it opens the door for greater opportunities more in line with my career goals.

    I gave the overall experience a "No Opinion" rating because it was such a weird way to be hired. No real human interaction until I called.

    Lead Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at K12 (San Antonio, TX) in August 2019.

    Interview

    It was a very lengthy and thorough interview. I had to do a video recording of questions and answers and then and video tape a sample lesson. I had a second interview with another k12 school and it was much easier. It was just a casual phone conversation. So I guess it really depends on the school. Every school and principal is probably a different experience.
