    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kaplan in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a response the next day in a generic email explaining the interview process and that they are interested in screening me. The first part of the screening begins with filming a 4 minute video presentation of yourself teaching how to solve an SAT problem among several options that they give you. I have not made it further than that. Others have described the full experience in greater detail, I am just reporting that my experience was consistent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kaplan (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 observed classroom demos. Actual interview was very brief. Mostly just 2 demos. The first was in front of teachers and admin. The 2nd was in front of a classroom of about 14 students. 3 people were supposed to be interviewed, but only 2 showed up. You had to use an E Whiteboard without being told how, which is really the industry standard now. The lesson was supposed to be timed. 5 minutes for the first one and 10 minutes for the 2nd. Friendly people and nice classes.
