    Special Education Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The process was rather easy, as I had already been with the company. My potential supervisor and a neutral party interviewed me together and both took scrupulous notes, which was a bit unnerving at times.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I handle a situation if I were teaching a lesson and a behavior situation arose which also needed my attention?   Answer Question

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After the second interview, I was told I would hear back within two weeks. I never heard back whether I had made the next interview. After contacting the recruiter, she said she would find out the answer from the director the second interview was with, but then never got back to me about it. Extremely unprofessional and very poor communication for such a renowned organization.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. It started with a phone screening. A week later, I went in for an interview with the HR department. They didn't contact me until about 2 weeks after that so I thought I didn't get another interview. I went in for the second interview with 2 people and they were super nice and friendly. They described exactly what I'd be doing if I got the position. The interviews that I had lasted about 15 minutes each.

    Speech Language Pathologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely intense, understandably so knowing their level of expectations. A big chunk of the interview is you getting a tour of the facility as well as talking about pay and benefits. This was a HUGE con to me. Obviously, when interviewing typically you REALLY want the job, there is no need to "sell" us the position by giving us the amazing salary and benefits package before letting us know if we made it to the next round of interviews.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within the hour I received a call to do my first phone interview. The questions were your basic: where do you see yourself going, what are your goals, why do you think you'd be a good fit, salary expectations, etc. I spoke with Jocelyn and she made me feel very comfortable! I then came in a few days later for a second interview where I was asked the hypothetical type questions: if you were _______, how would you handle it? etc. I then did testing for Word, Excel, and typing. Keep in mind, at least for admin positions, they only test for your basic competency!

    Easy Interview

    I submitted my resume to the company website many times before being contacted. I eventually received a call for an interview. My one on one interview only lasted about 30 minutes then I was given a brief tour. I was offered the job about a week later. The employer sent an orientation packet to my home to be completed prior to new hire orientation.

Interview was with a small panel, standard questions. A week later, I heard back about an offer, but declined due to the salary.
