    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaplan (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    First round was submitting an "audition" explaining a test problem, then a technical interview where you teach more questions, then an interview with the local manager you would report to. Went really quick, fast to get the ball rolling.

    • It was basic- if you want to title and want to work in a school of this type you should do fine. Many of my questions were about my interest in ESL and experience living abroad.   Answer Question

    one interview. Pretty easy. It was my current boss and the women whose position I was taking over. Very friendly and professional. Probably took a total of 20 minutes. Normal questions like where do you see yourself, what is your prior experience, how does Kaplan fit into your plans, do you have any questions.

    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.
