    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaplan (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick and to the point. An audition was scheduled in advanced. I sat down to the interview and was not told Foxfire was the best way to do this online process . I was stressed when I started, but we worked it out.
    You can not teach a mock class online with one person. It feels all wrong, I was very prepared and i did not get hired.
